Model of the Month - Justin!
We just couldn't resist putting our super talented, nice, genuine and charming model and actor, Justin, in the spotlight!
Tell us about yourself. Where are you from?
I grew up in a small town in Ohio, called Germantown, corn fields and cows! I moved to New York to pursue my dreams. My background is Italian, English, German and Irish so I'm a bit of a mutt!
How did you get started in this field?
I moved to New York to pursue acting but quickly discovered the city liked my "look" and have also done modeling ever since. I love not knowing what I could be doing the next day. It's like a job where I constantly get to play make believe.
I love taking day trips to go hiking anywhere outside the city. I also have a bike to ride around in the summer, spring and fall. Another big hobby is trying new restaurants and broadway shows, I love the theatre!
Who are some of your favorite icons that have influenced you?
Its funny, when I first got started I had long flowing hair and everyone would call me Fabio. I would say the careers of Fabio, Marcus Schenkenberg, and Tyson Beckford have been pretty iconic. They stand out as trend setters in the industry and I would like to do the same!
Long term goals?
Long term I would love to be the face of a fragrance as well as book a serious role on a television show that shoots in New York!
