Name|Jaime Ross Carpena
Hometown|New Brunswick, NEW JERSEY!

How did you get discovered?
I was discovered at the store, Trash & Vaudeville by Natalie Hazzout
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I have been involved in performing and recording music since age 11. I operated a recording studio in Jersey City from age 19 and have been a full time music producer since creating "TRASH CITY USA" clothing line as well with the vision of developing it into a full on brand, label and creative collective.
People would be surprised to know that I...
have been cutting and styling my own hair for six years and started developing a passion/talent by working on my close friends' hair too.
What's your latest obsession?
My favorite urban artists, Young Thugs' new album "Barter 6", "Future", "Migos" and "Rich The Kid" , as well as one of my all time favorite artist, Drake!
Your most prize possession?
My Mac Book Pro & Mac Book Air, which is where I create all or (most) of my music. Without the laptop with my software, I would have no creative outlet!
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
Devendra Banhart
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
The last time I said, I Love You to someone would be my mother/father. I say it to them daily.
Personally, I was in a relationship for quite a while with a girl named Emily. I would say that was the last time I was "In Love", but not to say things have changed since then!

If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?
New Brunswick, New Jersey—We would go to a basement show, donation based for touring bands, the punk, indie, metal and urban music scene has always thrive there. That's where I began to find myself and create most of the visions I have brought to life today. 
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
A comedy based documentary based on my life, as a kid working retail jobs struggling to get by.
