33, but very few people can tell I’m in my 30’s.

I was cast for the TV show Fatal Attraction on channel TV1. The casting director wanted a tall, dark, handsome young man, and chose me through my agent after seeing my photo.
4.What would you say is your biggest achievement so far?
Breaking into that role on Fatal Attraction, and being a swimsuit model for Kyle King (who is a designer for Calvin Klein) and modeling for Cocksox, which is a designer out of Australia.

Get your name and face out into the world the best way you can. Also, stay in shape, and keep your looks together.
8.What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?
Every time I get gas at this certain gas station, there’s a female that works in there and she starts grinning hugely because she thinks I look so much like Brian McKnight. I went last night, and she saw me and started smiling at the register, then said…you know what I’m thinking don’t you? I replied, Yep. Nobody else does though. She just started laughing. She gets so excited. It’s cute. I love it.

Play my PS4.
