But my job, if anything, is to acknowledge where I’m at right now and to enjoy it for everything it’s worth.”
“I loved Al Lipshitz more than I could possibly say. He was a real artistic guy, sensitive, a painter. But he was always trying to find himself. He’d go out every night looking for himself.

‘I’m very competitive, but it’s hard to be a competitive male model because a lot of it is out of your control. You can’t control how you look, you can only control the way you act and obviously how you do your job. Don’t go hungover to castings, don’t let yourself go; it’s kind of an easy formula to follow. And I’m not taking anything away from this job, I’ve been in it eight and a half years. It’s a difficult job, and it’s really easy to be unprofessional. But if you’re a professional and you do it right, you’ll have a good career.‘
