How long have you been modelling?
I got scouted by Elite a couple of months ago.
Good, they're good people. What have you done in your first couple of months modelling?
So far it's been good, I've done Topman, FTape, Co:Lab and a commercial video.
What are you hoping to do moving forward in terms of modelling?
I'd love to do Burberry.
What are you passionate about?
Music is a passion of mine. I've always been into music, and have family history with music. Since I was a little child, I always wanted to do something within music.
Do you play any instruments?
Yes, I play the piano. I'm classically trained, and have been playing since the age of four.
We have a piano there under our pile of fashion magazines if you'd like to impress us?
Haha no I'm alright, it's too early for that. And I wouldn't want to ruin your lovely piles of magazines stacked up. I'm starting to drift into modern music now, and starting to write as well, including some more commercial mainstream and hip hop.
What is your favourite classical music?
Oh that's a very good question. My favourite would probably be the Black Key Étude or Nocturne in E Flat Major by Chopin. There is a lot of nice music around. I also like modern and more mainstream music, but it' good to have that classical background if you're planning to study music. I often use classical music as inspiration chord-wise when working on modern music.
Can you give us a few random facts about yourself?
I love ToffeeCrisps!
Ah I love ToffeeCrisps! You shouldn't have said that, I'm trying to be good!
Next random fact, I play golf. Which most people don't do, cause people think it's an old man's game haha.
And I also play table tennis.
Are you English?
Yes, but also my mum is from Israel.
Have you got a favourite piece of clothing?
I love a stripey t-shirt. I'm known for my stripey shirts. Topman do some good ones.
Can you give us a playlist of your 5 favourite songs?
"Ghetto Gospel" by 2Pac
"Changes" by 2Pac
"Wonderman" by Tinie Tempah
"Blame Game" by Kanye West
"Drunk In The Club" by Bei Maejor
Have you got a favourite video on YouTube?
Yes I do! Something called "Dude Perfect". It's a basketball video where these basketball players try to do impossible things. It’s wicked you should check it out.
What's a typical day like for you?
I wake up early. I get up, have breakfast and three out of seven days I go to the gym. Probably pop into town, as I work at Abercrombie and Fitch.
I know right haha, but it gives me great flexibility to go to castings.
If you were to open a shop, what would you sell?
That's another great question. Probably clothes. Like American style clothing, yet still fashionable.
