How were you discovered?
Thomas Knights “Red Hot100” -Thomas asked one of my friends if he knew of any guys with red hair, my name came up so me and we ended up shooting that together.. Things snowballed from there.
What has been the high light to you career so far?
I’ve been fortunate enough to work with lots of brands and had many highlights but Red Hot 100 has to be the high point so far because I feel it has really contributed to making red hair more fashionable and boosting people’s self confidence in there differences.
Whats the funniest thing a clients asked you to do?
Standing under a ladder and have a bucket of water poured over my head.

Whats the best piece of advice you were ever given?
Its better to be prepared for a opportunity that doesn’t happen than unprepared for a opportunity that does.
What item of clothing could you not live without?
Ahhh it’s Got to be my leather jackets you can make them go with everything… Oh and my key chain, I always used to loose my keys.
How do you keep fit?
Well from being a full time athlete at international level in the past, I’m lucky to have a good base. I used to train 2 times in the water per day and do strength and conditioning session 3-4 times a week, alongside that I had a support team of a Technical Coach, Nutritionists, Physio’s, Dr’s and a strength and conditioning coach to make sure I could get it the most out of every session, since retiring I’ve lost around 13kgs in body weight in the last 6 months. This is purely down to diet and not doing the same amount of work load in training. I tailor my diet and training to look how I want to look.

I love a slice of Cake

JJ Grey- Lullaby, he’s quality!

Build a nest in my living room and watch films… Can’t beat abit of spontaneous ice skating either.

If you were an animal what would you be?
Probably some kind of big cat.
