How did you get discovered?
On a website where I was approached by my now mother agent, 25 Model Management
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I have always worked in fashion as a visual merchandiser and as store management. I have always sang and wrote songs about my life and things I have seen in the world around me.
People would be surprised to know that I...
have the largest room in my house as a walk in dressing room and I still have boxes and rails of clothes in the other two rooms too. I have a bit of a shopping addiction.
What's your latest obsession?
Fragrance Oud Wood by Tom Ford. I fell in love at the first smell of the fragrance and have found it hard to wear any other since. I feel I may have rather a addictive personality! Lol!
Your most prize possession?
Most definitely, if you have not already guessed, my clothes, shoes and accessories. If you made me get down to my favorite piece, I would most definitely have to say my Vivienne Westwood—Buffalo hat in Tan, which sold out and I thought I had no chance of ever getting one but my fabulous mother managed to track me one down for my birthday and having already given up on any hope of getting one, it really was a great surprise!
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
Growing up, my hero has always been my mother. No matter what life has ever thrown at her, including cancer, she has always fought head on and come out the other side to tell the tale. She is the strongest and bravest person I know and for that reason, my mom is always going to be my number one hero!
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
I never put the phone down to my family or loved ones without saying I love you so today I said I love you to my best friend, wishing her well on her family holidays.
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Outgoing, Loyal, Loving
Describe your personal style:
I have always been known to change up my look and to mix it up. But right here and right now in 2016, I would say I have rather a Bohemian style with a baggy surfer edge and oversized jumper/tee obsession.
Your favorite place you have travel to:
I love the Greek Islands as they are so beautiful and are so rich in historical value. I always find a new place to visit or a new taverna to eat in. The people are always so beautifully friendly and the country is gorgeous. If I had to pick one particular place I would say "Lindos—Rhodes". But there are also many more places worldwide I know I will see and love just as much someday.
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
Death Becomes Her—Scene: When she pricks her finger to give her the magic youth serum and she shrieks "What are you nuts?" Makes me giggle as much today as it did when I was a little boy watching it with my nan.
Your favorite sport:
Not really into much sports but I always had a love for the water myself.
Team: Aston Villa—Terrible I know but it is the family team.
Player: Michael Owen—purely because I met him when he was 15 on holiday with our families and has always been a lovely lad.
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?
Welshpool, Powys—Lake Vyrnwy, not too far away from where I live in Wales now. It is beautiful and from that first day I saw it, I said I would get marry there one day. Just need to get someone to marry me now!
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 individual or stand alone show. It wouldn't be overseen nor run by a large network or film company in this case.
Theme song: Never Be Like You by Fume featuring Kai—I would pick this because it says it all. Never be like someone else. Be proud to be you and it's a tune and it is catchy. I like it anyway.
Craziest thing you ever done:
Would have to be paragliding as I really didn't think I would be able to, having been scared of heights as a child but I bloody love it!
Your wish for the remainder of 2016?
To be happy and live life to the fullest.
