How did you start out in modelling?
I was riding my BMX and I had a “shoot” for a magazine to promote a local shop. I wasn’t really sure what was going to happen but they came to the skatepark with all this camera equipment, but it felt amazing to have my pictures taken doing something I love. From then on I was hooked.
If you could invite any 3 people to a dinner party who would it be?
I would invite Tom Cruise for his stories, Jonah Hill to keep the laughing all night long, and probably Taylor Swift, mainly because I fancy her!
Which track do you currently have set on repeat?
I have a 1hr loop of a 2 minute song. Two Feet, Go F yourself.
Favourite city you have travelled to for work?
I don’t have a specific city, but probably the Isle of Wight was my favourite location. I was there for a weekend doing all the tourist activities and riding my bike, along with being a stunt double. Everything about it was perfect!
What are your secrets to staying fit and healthy?
Well sometimes I don’t get time to train, but you always have to eat, so I just make sure to eat enough fruit and vegetables a day. I think sleep is also a big factor, if my body is tired I always stop cycling to prevent injuries.
Describe your style in 3 words?
Unique, bold and simple.
Name a guilty pleasure you cant live without?
Pizza Wednesdays oh and maybe pizza Fridays…
What’s your ‘go to’ workout routine?
I do like my intense Tabata workouts.
One of the most unusual shoots that you’ve done?
I was a stunt double for an Aldi advert. I had to do a wheelie on a BMX bike across a kitchen table where people were eating, that was pretty strange. However, really fun!
What’s the most useful advice you’ve received?
“Be right or be happy” – if you do a task with low confidence with the attitude “I can’t do it”, you have more chance of not completing it and then saying ” I was right, I knew I couldn’t do it”. Instead, I think it’s important to go into something and try your best. You may not have completed the task but you will be happy you tried your best.
