Has to be working on the Versace Dylan Blue Pour Femme campaign shoot.
What’s the craziest shoot you’ve ever done?

Being able to have the gift to travel and meet all sorts of new traditions, styles and people.
Describe your perfect day off when you are not modelling.
Two cups of coffee around 8:30 am, then watch two episodes of Frasier my favorite TV show. Then head to the gym to train for an hour or two, afterwords usually meet up with some friends for lunch. If I have my motorcycles I am for sure going out for tight corners ride. Make my way home cook my food for the next day then facetime my family back in Oregon. That’s about my day off it can vary depending where I am at in the world.
How would you define your personal style?
Simple style I am not a lavish person. Leather jacket, LEVI’s jeans, boots with a faded shirt underneath and my silvery ring I am good to go.

Ten years from now (you will be…)?
A family man.
