————————————————————————
IN CONVERSATION|ZACHARIAH HARRIS

Name|Zachariah Harris
Age|17
Hometown|Santa Monica, California

How did you get discovered?
I was found at the bar getting bottles of water for myself and DJ Carnage I'm his assistant when he is in LA.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
Prior to this I was surfer/student in sunny Santa Monica California
People would be surprised to know that I...
am super good at handstands and walking on my hands. I was in gymnastics as a little Zaq and make the travel team I also was the fifth best skater in California when I was 14.
What's your latest obsession?
Lately I have been really obsessed with making candles. When I was in London on a holiday, I got this candlemaking kits and found cool containers to put them in. Another reason is that the ladies love candles so that's cool!
Your most prize possession?
I have a big attachment to this orange stone ring that my grandmother gave me when she passed away before she could give it to me but I know she would have given it to me and my mom because she would hold my hand and tell me that everything was going to be all right, she would have the special ring on. My mom and I share it now and that makes it even more special to me.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
Growing up, I really look up to Michael Jordan. Space Jam was my favorite movie and I love how much Michael Jordan smile in that film and how all the people and even the Looney Tunes loved him. I guess I really aspired to have a smile that was loved by all and make people happy too!
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
The last time I said I love you to someone and meant it was when I wrote a letter to my dad's mom who doesn't really communicate with my family anymore ever since my mom passed away. I have been longing to re-connect the grandmotherly energy again.
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Authentic, Loving and Compassionate
Describe your personal style:
My style is very urban. I adore shoes and pants with rips in them that I made so they have more character in them. I love to find all the dope shirts at flea markets, thrift stores and I love stripes! I guess I have a surfer, street culture, rap style but I love dressing up to have a night out on the town.
Your favorite place you have travel to:
London, England
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
Forrest Gump—Scene: Meeting Elvis
Your favorite sport:
Sport: American football
Team: New England Patriots
Player: Tom Brady , because he wears Uggs!
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?
Venice Beach, CaliforniaYou're in for a fun day in Venice Beach! We will take the beach cruisers to the beach. From there, we will go to get pupusas, which is this Mexican type quesadilla with yummy meat and  this delicious salsa you put on top. We will then shoot some pics cause there's cool graffiti right by the beach then we would ride the bikes home after we get the good sunset shots!
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
The show would consists of a recap of all the funny videos of the week but better than Tosh.O. After that it would be a live musical performance like Jimmy Fallon have the house band, The Roots. The next hour would be Who's Line Is It Anyway? The final hour is a animated comedy sketch show when they use my voice as a dog of a celebrity and it will be about me  and the other famous pets I meet. Crazy huh? Theme song: Super Hero by Jane's Addiction
Craziest thing I ever did:
It involves Malibu, my homie Victor, drinked boxed wine and two twin girls!
Your wish for 2016?
Assurance of great health for my dad!

JTC IN LOS ANGELES: ACTOR/MUSICIAN STEFFAN ARGUS|FORD LA









——————————————————————
IN CONVERSATION|STEFFAN ARGUS

Name|Steffan Argus
Age|17
Hometown|Des Plaines, Chicago

How did you get discovered?
After acting and performing music, I want to delve back into modeling as well. I used to do it when I was younger and I want to explore that world again.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I've been performing across the country. I sing and write alternative music. I have also been an actor in both television and film since I was 11 and I played nine instruments: Guitar, piano, french horn, cello, ukulele mandolin, banjo, bass guitar and percussion.
People would be surprised to know that I...
Sometimes I'd like to feel extreme emotions even if it's negative. I just love to feel and live life. Sometimes life is bad but I almost like the ups and downs and makes me feel like I'm actually living. 
What's your latest obsession?
I've been obsessed with analyzing music. I like to listen to songs over and over so I can pick out every layer, instrumentation and effects. I want to figure out exactly how music is made so I can do it too!
Your most prize possession?
I have a stuffed animal pull a bear named Rudy that I had since I was a baby. He's really comforting because he reminds me of my childhood. 
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
Growing up, I really look up to my sister Sadie when she started learning guitar I copied her so she's the reason I do music. She also has impeccable music taste which she shared with me.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
To my mom right after we had both been freaking out and crying because we miss seeing my little sister Lacey, she is still in Chicago and I miss her every day. Me and my two sisters are unusually close!
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Believing, Hopeful and Open
Describe your personal style:
I'm into worldly vintage clothes. A mix of what Peter Pan would look like and a character from a John Hughes movie!
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Kauai. It felt like home very natural and free!
Your favorite music tracks:
Vessel by Twenty One Pilots
An Awesome Way by Alt-J 
The Mistress by Yellow Ostrich
Talon Of The Hawk by The Front Bottoms
Peter Pan Soundtrack by James Newton Howard
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?
Des Plaines, Chicago—I take all my friends who visit me in Des Plaines to an abandoned motel called the "Polo Inn". The people who owned it were evicted and it's been vacant for three years. Inside there's still a bunch of cool stuff. For instance, I found the entire Star Wars Saga on DVD and copy of the book, Treasure Island.
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 the drama comedy involving young teenagers. It would be a marriage between The Office and the Breakfast Club. Theme song: Hahahahohoho by Yellow Ostrich
Craziest thing you ever done:
When I was three, I was at my aunt's wedding in Hawaii. I was the flower boy. I accidentally got drunk from a martini and I stripped naked durging their vows and went streaking down the aisle and onto the beach! :)
Your wish for 2016?
I hope to make music people will love to listen to I want to perform for crowds big or small!
