You’re quite a famous Vlogger! How did you get into it? 

I’ve been making videos for fun since I was 10 or 11. Never thought much of it, me and my friends just thought it was cool to film ourselves skateboarding, snowboarding, doing flips etc. When I was a sophomore in highschool I started taking it more seriously and considering pursuing it as a career path. When I graduated I knew I didn’t want to go to university because I just never did well in the school system. Ive always been a hands on learner and I can’t sit still for much more than ten minutes at a time so I knew I had to make the video thing work. I just started doing freelance video work and was also working at my fathers restaurant. I was always reaching out to people on social media looking for opportunity and after about a year of graduating highschool I had an opportunity to move to Los Angeles and start making Youtube videos with other creators. One thing led to another, I made some good connections and I’ve been traveling and making videos since then!

What made you want to get into Vlogging?

I’ve always liked making videos and when I started traveling a lot it seemed like the best way to share what I was up to with my audience.

Describe yourself in 3 words…

Creative, Outgoing, Open-Minded (I guess that was 4 words)

Dream brand to work with?

Not sure what brand but it would be insane to collaborate with Travis Scott on a video project. I’m a big fan of his music but his live shows are what are super inspiring to me. His energy on stage and the effort he puts into every show is unreal.

Any party tricks?

A backflip is always my go to! If we’ve had a few drinks I stay away from the flips though and go to the old opening a wine bottle with a shoe👌

Favourite emoji?

I use a lot of different ones for sure. I’m terrible at Instagram captions so I usually just put an emoji as the caption and it’s just whatever I’m feeling that day, you know? But if I had to only use one for the rest of my life I’d have to go with the black heart. All love on this side! But the red one feels a little too emotional, the black one is a good balance of showing love without anyone feeling weird haha.🖤

Life motto?

I couldn’t pick one motto that I live by, there’s a lot of little mottos that I try to remind my self of every morning. But most of them fall under the concept of being grateful to be alive, to be yourself unapologetically, be good to others and spread good energy, and try and leave some kind of impact on the world so your existence means something after you’re gone. “Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity” – Horace Mann. I don’t even know who that guy is but I think that’s a pretty good way of thinking. No matter what religion or beliefs you have, all we know is this life and we know that it ends. So I believe that if you haven’t left something for the world/humanity after you’ve passed in any form or size then you’ve done an injustice. You don’t have to be the next Martin Luther King or Mozart, but aim to leave some kind of mark. Yo, that got deep.

Tell us something you’ve not told in an interview before… 

I low-key like chick flicks.

Favourite piece of the Serge Collection?

Yoooo, thats hard! Probably the silver dragon bracelet! But the silver skeleton hands ring, silver eagle ring and the silver carpe diem ring from the new sterling collection are crazyyy also! Silver jewellery is my thing.

Do you have any exciting projects coming up?

For sure! Me and my best friend Rob are in the beginning stages of creating a street wear fashion brand. I guess i’m “known” for making videos and taking cool photos but I don’t look at my self as a videographer. I’m a creative, which has no limits. I want to create art in every form. Clothing, Video, Music, Photo, Etc. So were super excited to get the clothing started and see where it goes!

Life Motto?
Make it happen.

Doing things I love, expanding my mind and Aurora. Learning new things and constantly challenging myself.
Dream Brand to collaborate with?
I don’t have a dream Brand to work with. I am open to working with all Brands.
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Wellness, Loving, Grateful.
Favourite place in London?

Where I grew up; Camden!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Being a better version of myself. Doing more things I love in many, many different ways.
Favourite shoot you’ve done?
My first shoot, because it is how it all began. It was the Gucci Pre-Fall Campaign in 2017. I met some amazing models who I have developed great relationships with. That is how I got signed to my Mother Agency also.
Do you have any exciting projects coming up?
Well, I just did this shoot for Serge so that is exciting! I’ve got a Footlocker campaign coming out soon. The rest you can wait and see!
What advice would you give your 16-year-old self?
You got everything in place. Everything is divine. Maybe invest in Apple & Cryptocurrency.
What does Fashion mean to you?
A physical expression of non-physical feelings that are omitted through the material, colours, the model’s expression, or the set. Speaking and interpreting the Designer’s vision and letting the audience interpret that in unique ways. Expressing yourself, that is the main thing that is my understanding of it.

Before shoots I always get a bit nervous/butterflies like I do just before kickoff. But once the shoot gets going I find my mojo and run with it.

Best dance move?
I think it has to be a classic two-step with a bit more energy, you know like the one you do at a festival when you flare your hands up a bit and you’re a bit more lively 😂
Favourite emoji?
🕺🏾 you’ll see this pop up on my captions regularly, I feel like it pretty much personifies me as a human.
Life motto?
If you don’t believe in yourself who else will?
How were you scouted?
I actually saw a friend of mine in a Primark campaign on Instagram and he tagged the agency that he was with and I thought I’d go for it and messaged them on Instagram and we set up meeting! Best dm I’ve ever sent!
Do you have any exciting projects coming up?
My favourite thing about modelling is how unpredictable it is. Waiting on a basketball campaign confirmation, which should be good fun!
Favourite piece from Serge DeNimes?
I like the compass ring, I like the mix of gold and silver.

Favourite place in London?

Since I’m fairly new in UK and especially London, I haven’t had that much time yet to go sight seeing. But I must say that just traveling around with the underground connection and going direct from the edge of the city till then some minutes late walking up true the middle of Oxford Circus, is very humbling. But then again I guess it depends on witch mood you are in. I went to Hyde Park the other day and enjoyed the sun :)

 

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Energetic, dedicated, creative

 

Dream brand to collaborate with?

Would love to work with Versace 

 

Favourite piece of the Serge DeNimes collection?

That’s a hard one.. Honestly really like all of it. But if I have to pick I might go with the ‘breathe’ tee or some of the jewelry 

 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years

5 years from now I’m hopefully still able to travel around and experience different parts of the world. But besides that just being with family and loved ones :)

 

Do you have any hidden talents?

My vertical jumps are amazing :)

How were you scouted?

I got boxed off at a rave, woke up in the morning with my mother agent, Leah’s card in my pocket aha. I was 15/16

Favourite shoot you’ve done?

Adidas campaign a few years ago, cos it was all cool locations & team!  I love classic Merc’s & we had one on set. In fact, the whole set was sick, they got a fire engine to make ‘rain’ and had to look cool af in the Merc

Do you have any hidden talents?

The grip of my big toe & second toe’s pinch strength can make it to the Guinness book of records

Who is your favourite designer?

Tbh I’m really feeling modern fashion, it’s breaking boundaries in the sense that high street brands are collabing with high fashion. Virgil Abloh is LV’s creative, that’s huge man. Collabs with Kanye & Adidas etc

Describe yourself in 3 words…

I would describe myself as determined, hardworking and fun!

We hear you’re a brick layer by day – what’s the coolest thing you’ve built?

All of the stuff we build is pretty cool but the coolest was turning an old abandoned warehouse into an art gallery but leaving the rustic theme! Modern meets edgy ! 
Do you have any hidden talents?
I would say my hidden talent is waking up really early and being able to stay awake for long periods without getting very tired when I’m busy with work. Which comes in handy with modelling and building. 
Favourite shoot you’ve done?
My favourite shoot I’ve ever done was for a Japanese brand and we got to shoot in a private airport in helicopters and wear really cool suits! 
Favourite emoji?
My favourite emoji would have to be 💥 as it just looks cool  and ends up on most of my Instagram captions and I tend not to use many emojis!
Tell us something you’ve not told in an interview before…
My favourite artists to listen to would be partynextdoor and the weeknd! 
Favourite piece of the Serge DeNimes collection? 
Definitely the tracksuits! Just because of comfort, simplicity and style mixed in to all of them!
