Where do you go to school?
I actually go to a community college on Chambers Street, theater major for now. And I’m a model, too. Like a photo model.

How did you get into that?
My mom used to model back in the sixties and seventies. And then Elite stopped me on the street when I was 14, but I thought it would be cool to finish high school. So now I’ve been doing some stuff. I did a magazine. And I also did a movie with Bruce Willis and Mischa Barton. Like an extras scene.

Tell me about your style.
I’m everything. I’m a surfer, snowboarder, skater; you can call me ghetto, too, I guess. Everything you can think of, that’s me.

Are you from the ghetto?
I’m from Bay Ridge, in Brooklyn. But I moved upstate a few years ago for my high-school career, up to Goshen. But now I’m back in Brooklyn. I’m looking for an apartment in Manhattan.

Did you like living in Goshen?
Oh, yeah. My dad actually commutes back and forth to the city, so I get to eat lunch with him every day and get rides back up there. My mom worked in the bus garage at my middle school, so she could see me and my brother every day. It’s nice.

Where do you hang out?
I like chill places like lounges. Like sushi lounges, even. And I just go out with my friends to movie theaters and malls. I love shopping, too.

What do you like to shop for?
All kinds of clothing, really. Abercrombie & Fitch, Billionaire Boys Club, A Bathing Ape, Nike. I can be preppy like Abercrombie or more ghetto.
