Where are you from? “Berry, a small town on the South Coast. Sydney.“
What do you do for fun? “Usually I go surfing with a crew of friends or my old man, cruise around the local skate parks and hills on the retro skateboard or just chill with a good group of mates.”
Likes & dislikes? “I love good food, summer holidays, tropical climates and I am a huge fan of nose rings. I am not too fond of cold climates unless there is snow, people who stress over the slightest things and fluffy small dogs – I find them hard to take.“
Favourite model? “I actually don’t know any models, considering I am new to the world of modelling.”
Who do you consider your ‘heroes’? “I would have to say my older brother Toby, sister Simba and Matt Walker (who is like another older brother to me). I have looked up to them ever since I was a youngster and they have had a huge influence on the person that I am today.”
Favourite TV show? ‘The Mighty Boosh’ for sure, there is nothing else like it.”
Favourite movie? ‘Lords of Dogtown’, I would have seen it at least twenty times.”
Favourite fashion label? “Probably Lee and I love finding clothes at Op shops and other bargain places.”
What are you listening to at the moment? “I have been listening to a lot of older hip hop/rap like Cypress Hill and House of Pain. I have also started listening to Nirvana again, one of the bands I grew up on.”
I look forward to seeing more of him, the posts in picture #1 have me smitten. It's rather hard to gauge much from due to the sunglasses in his first runway appearance, but I love that mop of brown hair.
