IN CONVERSATION|KENNY SALE
Name|Kenny Michael Sale
Born in Fayetteville, North Carolina lived the majority of my life in Eugene, Oregon
How did you get discovered?
I was scouted in Phoenix, Arizona while I was driving a friend to her acting agency. A man approached me and asked me if I had a girlfriend. I assumed he was coming on to me. After I answered no, his follow up question was "Would you be interested in leaving Phoenix and traveling around the world?" I hesitantly answered yes...turns out he was a model scout and wanted to push me into the world of modeling
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was attending Arizona Christian University in Phoenix, pursuing a behavioral health, pre-med degree as well as playing soccer.

Back in college days, I traveled up to Washington with a friend who managed a department at the zoo. It was a long drive and he wanted someone to keep him company. He was driving up to Washington to check on a tagged bear that was sick. Because it was a long drive, I decided to have a few drinks before I left. Upon arrival, I was quite inebriated. The bear was sick and looked sad. I wanted to try and cheer him up. I grabbed a six foot long stick to play with him. Needless to say, he did not like that, took a charge, and swiped! He managed to catch my arm! Bear 1, Kenny 0
