Name|Mitchell Robinson
Hometown|Acworth, Georgia

How did you get discovered?
I was scouted while roaming Atlanta and a fashion designer noticed me and snapped some pics. He send the pics to U Model Management and I was signed.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was breeding endangered geckos as a kid. I started collecting them at the age of 13 and end up having over hundred before I knew it. I now specialized in Madagascar geckos and am the leading keeper in the Southwest United States. I also keep my bengal cat, Maverick in Georgia, which is my best animal I have ever kept.
Your favorite animal:
Uroplatus Pietschmanni (Cork bark leaf tailed gecko) I was obsessed when it was first discovered in 2003. It looks made up and is a freak of nature. I dream of the species which I use to keep quite often!
People would be surprised to know that I...
can jump rope while I am on a pogo stick at the same time. Also, I race sport atv's whenever I get the chance back in Georgia.
What's your latest obsession?
Trying to master the cooking of authentic porcini risotto
Your most prize possession?
My favorite endangered gecko species that is no longer available in the US was made into a custom brass necklace for me. The species means a lot to me.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
Steve Irwin was my idol. He came to Atlanta right before he died and I almost had the chance to meet him. As a kid, every Halloween I always wound up dress up as him.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
My mother, she means the world to me as well as my family in Georgia
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Passionate, Driven and Ambitious
Describe your personal style:
Ninja like, love black color clothing but not too casual
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Talkeetna, Alaska
Your favorite film and scene from the film:

Your favorite sport:
Sport: Swimming

I was upset when Tom Gonzales retired!
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?
Acworth, Georgia—Acworth is known as the lake city. It has beautiful views of the foothills of the Appalachians mountains.
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
It would be a show about adventures with Mitchell. Kind of like a crocodile hunter but with shooting guns, going to different countries seeing the crazy sites and finding animals. Theme song: Rollercoaster by Bleachers
Craziest thing you ever done:
I went to Switzerland without my passport when I was traveling by train in Europe. I had to sneak into the bathroom to avoid being check on! It's a miracle I got through!
Your wish for the remainder of 2015?
2016 Cadillac CTS V
