New Work for Descente FW ’18

Check me out in the Descente FW ’18 campaign. I must say I feel pretty great: from being the pudgy kid in elementary school to booking multiple campaigns this year as a fitness model.

Oh, the places we can go when we’re determined and never, ever — under any circumstances — give up.

I’ve spent half of my life on the journey to become a professional model. You’ll never know how much I’ve sacrificed for this.

All the “no’s,” the “huge opportunities” that turned out to be nothing, giving up addictions, the constant struggle to convince myself I actually care about my “day job,” the dumbfoundedness I regularly feel as to why I’ve continued on this path for so long…

And then in an instant, without warning, it manifests. Slow for years, and then fast and all at once. And it hasn’t even [really] begun yet.

It feels fucking amazing. My best words of wisdom for anyone pushing to achieve their dreams are: start today, get a mentor, take the next right action (which sometimes is no action, btw), and think about it as a day-at-a-time process.

In a society that glorifies “hustle” and “hard work,” how can we work smarter and not harder? When everything inside us wants us to “push through,” how can we pause, recalibrate, and move forward with sniper-like precision?

This is my journey.

This is my commitment to myself.

This is my passion.

This is my life.
