IN CONVERSATION|JAKE JOHNSTON

Name|Jacob (Jake) Pratt Johnston

Hometown|Rockville, Maryland

How did you get discovered?
I was approached by a small local agency then I did a few shoots and got signed with my agent Jordan Morris after my pictures went around.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was just focusing on school and I played lacrosse, ran track and was on my school swim team.
People would be surprised to know that I...
am really into music, I've played guitar on and off for about eight years.
What's your latest obsession?
Aside from getting deeper into social media, I've also started to get into fashion and getting more interested in pop culture and celebrities.
Your most prize possession?
I have a shoe box under my bed with a bunch of random small things that spark an amazing flashbulbs of memories.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
Kayne West
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
Good friend, Sophia Giardina
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Creative, Outgoing and Crazy
Describe your personal style:
I loved to dress in long sleeve shirts that are a little big with skinny pants. I tend to go for a retro look. 
Your favorite place you have travel to:
I loved natural beauty in general. It is difficult for me to choose one...Arizona, Malibu, Carbo San Lucas and Bermuda, just to name a few.
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
Lord of the Rings—Scene: All the battle scenes but in the second movie, I loved when Gandalf saves Helm's Deep.
I actually watched some anime shows, I was obsessed with Avatar, The Last Airbender and I watch Naruto and Cowboy Bebop
Your favorite sport:
Sport: To watch is Football, to play is basketball
Team: Giants
Player: Odell Beckham Jr.
Dislikes: Cross-minded people
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?
Rockville, Maryland—SHRIMP! Charleston has great shrimp shacks! Try it!
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 make a show about people's reactions. Like the show Nathan For You or Comedy Central. Just doing stuff that would be considered socially unacceptable and see how people would react. Theme song: It would be something upbeat. Maybe a song from the late 90's or early 00's. Cannot think of a song at the top of my head, sorry!
Craziest Thing You Ever Did:
For a vine, once I stood on top of a parking garage and zoomed in on stuffed minon that was super far away and put music behind it. It turned out looking really funny!
Your wish for 2016?
I wish to find a cure for cancer. Ideally, I can pass it to the hands of someone who would be willing to share it with the world. The profit would make me happy but at the same time, I would be saving lives!
Superstitious Habit:
Close the closet doors every night before I go to sleep!
