How did you get into modelling?
I was scouted at Reading Festival in 2012 by one of the many fantastic people from my agency – D1 Models.
Besides modelling, what have you been up to?
I just finished my first term at Bristol University and I’m enjoying it a lot; I’d heard the nightlife was good, and it completely lives up to and surpasses expectations.
What’s your idea of a good time?
Having a couple of drinks with my close friends at home, then moving on to a bar/pub for some more drinks, and finally ending at a club. Or sleeping, I like that too.
Who do you admire?
I really admire Didier Drogba, the ex-Chelsea FC striker. Despite his somewhat dodgy reputation on the pitch, the things he’s done for his home country (Cote d’Ivoire) struck me as exceptional and his charity work is fantastic.
I love my hometown, Ealing in London.
Any secret vices?
I’m not sure they can be classed as vices, or secret, but I have a passion for pugs and gaming, and a girl with a nice bum (Am I allowed to say that…?)
Sum up your style in 3 words.
Dark, skinny, inconspicuous.
What was the most audacious thing you ever did?
My parents will read this…
Who’s your Ideal woman?
Emma Watson, with long hair preferably.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
That people love to talk about themselves.
