What basis do you work as a model?: Full time actor/model – member of SAG
I’ve been modeling for around 3 years; started working in front of the camera to get better ‘head shots’ to market myself as an actor; I love traveling, collaborating with talented photographers, models, designers – love the challenge of telling a story in a single frame… If you’re working with a team you trust, it’s amazing to let yourself live freely in the environment, then seeing the results, especially the ‘bolts’ of lightning that inevitably occur gives you such a feeling of accomplishment because for a moment, you collaborated on something brilliant…
I think of myself as a professional athlete – I make myself go to ‘practice’ every day, work harder & smarter then anyone else in the room or on the field (highly competitive), mix up my workouts (i.e. confuse my body), play sports, fuel my body with good nutrition, water and sleep, and stretch… The athlete who avoids serious injury is the athlete who surpasses most.
Constantly assess my career, representation, and the professional choices I make; I have long term and short term goals which are constantly evolving, keep myself mentally stimulated through life, art, music and experiences/interactions, and don’t try to ‘over plan’ anything – life is an wild & unpredictable ride – keep yourself ready & as PRESENT as you can.
