Favorite movie, tv show: Favorite movie would have to go to Kill Bill. Quentin Tarantino is one of my favorites, particularly for the dramatics. Favorite tv show is hands down, How To Get Away With Murder.
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product: I’m going to go with favorite designer and give OBVIOUS a hard time. I can’t decide between Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen.

Favorite modeling experience so far? My favorite experience would be when Cool Korea Magazine asked me to be in their publication. Cool Korea is known for featuring the best male models working in the fashion industry so I was flattered. So, I’m hoping to shoot with them one day. Being apart of OBVIOUS Magazine Model Watch is pretty dope too. I love the trends and innovation seen in the magazine.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country? The FOOD! I mean, there’s other things but there’s also the food.

Place you would love to visit: Barcelona, Paris or Tokyo. If I had to randomly pick out of a hat I would be fine with whatever I chose.
Currently, you’re obsessed with/about: My career. It’s my motivation. It’s the driving force that gets me going in the morning. It’s the reason why I’m here.
