When did you start off your modelling career?
After being on season 3 of “The Synergy Tv Supermodel” reality show and competition which I placed second. I believe this was in 2009 but I could be wrong.
Who/What inspires you to become a better at your craft?
What inspires me is the opportunities that make life exciting and fun. I love meeting new people, traveling and having fun. For example, modeling has taken me to different countries on numerous jobs including Jamaica, Bahamas, New York and even Chile!
What do you do apart from modelling?
Apart from modeling I have my own studio-gym where I train and help people to improve their overall health and wellness thus increasing their quality of life. I just wish everyone could feel the way I do. Also I am an amateur boxer so I have a very rigorous training routine.
What are your diet and fitness routines like in order to maintain your physique?
I train 6 days a week, 2-3 hours per day. Start with running 4 to 5 miles in the morning, then technical boxing training in the afternoon followed by strength and conditioning 2 to 3 days a week consisting of a lot of high intensity, constantly varied, functional movements. Which is CrossFit style workouts consisting of weightlifting and gymnastic movements at a very high intensity. On the diet side, i try to stick to whole food or natural foods. Meats, nuts, fruits, vegetables and provisions are the staple in my diet however once in a while I tend to indulge in the sweet side of life and dig into some ice cream or chocolate.
