Name|Robbie Scott Davidson
Hometown|Columbus, Ohio

How did you get discovered?
I was working at a restaurant when I was seventeen years old in Columbus, Ohio. One night while working a scout from Ford Chicago came into the restaurant, noticed me, and proceeded to ask if I was interested in modeling. From there, I was offered a contract from Ford and then signed with New York Models in NY.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was attending Worthington Kilbourne High School and pursuing a career in music. I had been on American Idol and The Voice competitions.
People would be surprised to know that I...
was part of a professional jump rope team in elementary school called Granby Hoppers. We toured all over the country performing in multiple shows a year.
What's your latest obsession?
Actor and singer, Hailee Steinfeld. I think that girl is phenomenal with so much talent.
Your most prize possession?
My guitar. I have owned my Taylor guitar since I was in the fifth grade and it has been through a lot of performances and different times of life with me.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
Stevie Wonder. His musicality, voice and song writing abilities are, in my opinion, unmatchable and the things he had to overcome in order to be where he is today is inspiring.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
The words "I Love You" are not uncommon for me to use. The last person I said those words to was my sister, Amy Davidson.
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Joyful, Kind and Driven
Describe your personal style:
I like very classic, all American look. Often times my shirts are tucked in giving my "Style" a very clean look. Wardrobe consists mainly of very neutral colors.
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Lake Simcoe in Canada. My Grandma's cousin owns a house there and one summer we went up to visit. It was one of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen.
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
Perks Of Being A Wallflower—Scene: The homecoming scene when Charlie (Logan Lerman) is standing against the wall, shy and nervous. "Come On Eileen" comes on the dance floor, Charlie see Sam and Patrick coming alive when they heard the song, he soon after decides to join them and dance. I love that moment.
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?
Columbus, Ohio—The North Market downtown. This is a massive warehouse downtown that consists of a bunch of small local shops on the inside. In the warehouse you see so many different cultures, ethnicities and styles all collide in one place which I love!
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
I would love to be on an "Orange Is The New Black" type show but for men. To get to play a darker type character is my favorite because it is so different from who I am. Theme song: Living For The City by Stevie Wonder
Your wish for the remainder of 2015?
This about to get very real deep but if I had one wish that could be answered it would be that child slavery would be abolished. This is something I have been very passionate about from a young age. 
Bonus wish please! To be a series regular on my own tv show or star in my own movie (Preferably a NetFlix original) Hailee Steinfeld would be my co-star!

Clothing: Green t-shirt and striped short sleeve shirt, both by Smith + Wykes
