Fashion Interview: Male Model Carlos José Talks About His Passion For Modelling In An Exclusive Interview With Linda Bella .#OTSM

What is your Philosophy in life? 
My philosophy in life would have to be “do what you love”. I see so many people studying their butts off in an area they don’t like just to please someone or make money fast, but when they graduate, they find themselves empty and lost.  
On the other hand we have people who study because they really want to, because they enjoy what they do, those people are the ones who are successful, they wake up early everyday to do what they love and nothing stands in their way.  I know the times are tough, but I believe that if one really wants it one can be successful in whatever we decide to do in life.
What were the Major Milestones that gave you that extra motivation boost? 
Well to tell you the truth, my motivation doesn’t come from any milestone I achieve.  I mean don’t get me wrong, it feels incredible to have accomplished something big, but I have to say It comes from the people.  Every time I get a positive or negative comment on a photo or any work I do it gives me that boost.  It makes me want to work harder and it makes me feel good knowing that people notice all the hard work and effort I put in anything I set out to do.
What are some of your Tips and advice for aspiring Models?
It’s a tough business and you meet all kinds of people along the way; you have to be able to handle criticism and handle yourself in all sorts of situations.  
My best advice is to have a great attitude. You never know when there is an opportunity waiting for you in a simple handshake or in a friendly conversation.  
It’s all about how you portray yourself and make your presence felt. Make people notice you for the right reasons and they’ll want to work with you.  Another tip is to use your strengths, you might not have the height, but if you have the body, the hair or something “unique” to compensate, then use it!  Every person has something that makes them special, the trick is finding that and using it to your advantage.
How often do you Work out and what are some of your best Health and Fitness tips?
I work out about 6 times a week, I try to divide it in a way that I have my weight lifting, my cardio and the most important thing, “my diet”. 
I honestly didn’t believe in it but when I tried it, there was nothing more to say, “you are what you eat” and that’s coming from a guy who has a real sweet tooth.  
Honestly I could eat just about anything!  But I don’t because I realize that you need discipline to sustain the way you want to look. Diet is key.
What are some of your latest and upcoming projects?
What I can tell you for sure is that I’m working very hard to put myself out there so that other agencies around the world can see me, that’s my main goal right now, to get signed outside Puerto Rico and hopefully do well for myself. 
Since the start of your career what has been the biggest hurdle you have had to overcome? 
I’d have to say my shyness, and some insecurity, when I got into this whole fashion business I was incredibly shy around crowds and new people. If I know people I love to joke around, and spend time laughing and having fun, but those insecurities, killed me, I was always worried about what people thought I was just looking for a way to fit in.  
One day I just decided to stop worrying, I let myself go and that’s when everything changed for me, everything was going my way, I was meeting new people, and making a name for myself. In a way this whole modelling experience has helped me come out of my shell.  
I’m even acting in commercials, TV shows and movies, which is something I never thought I’d get to do!  Modelling, has transformed me, helped me grow and prepared me for new adventures to come. Bring it on!
Name few of your favorite Designers and Photographers you have worked with from the beginning of your career? 
I’ve worked with many great fashion photographers during my short career, each with their own unique style and flare.  Some photographers I’ve worked with are: 
Edwin J. Lebron, great photographer and friend, Jaime Rivera, Abnel Gonzalez, Felipe Torres, Eliezer Hernandez and Christobal Berrios who is a great friend of mine and has helped me out tremendously!  
I’m sure I’m forgetting some (sorry guys!!!) but everyone I’ve worked with has been an amazing professional and a good person.  

Interior Design Interview : Olivia Silk Talks About Her Passion And Love For Interior Design In An Exclusive Interview With Linda Bella.


At OTSMagazine UK, We love bringing you creative insight and perspectives from bloggers and individuals all over the world who are kind enough to share their wisdom and journey with you all.Today we are featuring an interview with Olivia Silk - Interior designer, and Lifestyle Blogger at- www.lustliving.co.uk.
Hi Olivia, Tell us more about yourself, what was life like growing up?
Life was great growing up – I’ve got the best parents, one older sister, we’ve pretty much always had two dogs. I went to boarding school and then went on to study photography at university which has been a great tool for my blogging.
Please describe your blog "Lust Living" and what your motivations were for starting such an awesome endeavour ?
Lust Living is an interior lifestyle blog, so I write about everything from interiors, to travel, to food, to beauty – all the things that I find myself lusting after. I started my blog in 2015, I was sharing updates on my home renovation on Instagram and after a little while I decided to share my interior journey properly online.
Have you always been interested In Interior Design?
Not at all no. Only since I moved into my current home have I fully realised my passion for interior design.
How would you describe your Style?
If you asked me a year or two ago, I would have said Scandinavian and minimal in a flash, but as time goes on I’m realising that my style is constantly changing and developing, Like fashion I suppose. there’s always new trends and a new colour of the year so I suppose my style adapts a little bit each
year. I do still try to keep my style quite minimal – I don’t like too much going on, but then I like to warm it up a bit with pastel shades and a bit of texture like a Mongolian cushion or a warm metallic – maybe a gold lamp!

Brilliant Job on The Marble and Gold Bathroom, Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Thank you! I took a lot of inspiration from trawling Pinterest but I was really going for a luxury classic hotel bathroom feel.
What excites you most about Interior and Lifestyle Blogging? 
The opportunities that I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in. When I first started my blog two years ago, never did I think that I would be featured in GRAZIA magazine… or working on a collaboration with IKEA!
What Makes A Happy Home?
Dogs.
Do you have any design Rules?
  Less is more – I’m not a fan of clutter
So what are your latest and upcoming projects?
The next project is our other bathroom – it needs to be completely gutted and re-designed, a messy job but I’m excited to get that started. 
What advice would you give to Aspiring Interior and Lifestyle Bloggers out there?
Start now, don’t wait. My only regret is that I wish I’d started sooner.
How important is Art in Interiors and Name Three objects that can completely refresh a room?

I think it’s very important, although I am not the best example putting this into practice in the home, it’s something I hope I will get better at with age. 

A feature pendant light – my favourite are the Vita Copenhagen Eos Goose Feather lights (I got mine from Dotmaison.com
Textures cushions – Mongolian sheepskin preferably, you can normally pick them up in TK Maxx but west elm have a gorgeous range too.
A neutral rug – I’ve got my eye on a Tisca Olbia rug.

What are your top interior design tips?
I tend to stick to neutral colours for the main design of a room – walls, large pieces of furniture etc and then be a bit bolder with accessorising, adding metallic and so on.
What other blogs inspire you? 
My favourites are Only Deco Love,  Stylizimo, Hannah in the House & Cate St Hill
What are your goals/dreams/ambitions for your blog and for yourself?
At the moment I work a full time 9-5 job and blog in the evenings and weekends, but my aim is to be working full time as a blogger in a couple of years time – so fingers crossed!

Fashion Interview : Don Benjamin Talks Modelling, Music And His Career In An Exclusive Interview With Linda Bella.


DON BENJAMIN- Music and fashion have always been intimate bedfellows, but neither world has ever heard or seen an artist and presence quite like Don Benjamin.A notable model whose credits include serving as the face for Guess, Moods of Norway, Tilly's, and Pink Dolphin campaigns and finalist on the 2013 season of America's Next Top Model, he grabs the mic and holds tight on his forthcoming debut album. The rapper ignites slick, smart verses via an impressive flow, relaying personal stories with palpable panache. It’s been resonating too. His track "Across the Sky" [featuring Nikki Flores] saw placements on Big Brother, America's Next Top Model, and various MTV programs. It also landed in the iTunes Overall Top Songs chart, officially announcing his arrival as an artist.
Tell Us A Little more about yourself and what inspired you to go into the Entertainment Industry?
Well, my mother got me into modeling at an early age and I always wrote poetry and rhymes growing up as a hobby. But it wasn’t until I realized I wasn’t going to the NBA that I wanted to chase the entertainment dream seriously. After I graduated high school I did a semester in college and decided to move to LA to chase it for real!

 Who are some of your biggest influences in the Entertainment Industry?
Some of my influences in the industry consist of Jay-Z, Tyson Beckford, Denzel Washington, LL Cool J. They all took their talents to the ultimate level of success.

Credit- www.iamdonbenjamin.com
Who or what inspires and motivates you daily?
The main thing that motivated me is knowing that anything in life is possible if you work hard enough for it. I didn’t have much coming up and I want to be able to take care of my family and know that the children in our family and their children will be straight for life.

When you look back to the start of your career, did you ever think you would get this far?
Honestly looking back at the beginning of my career I always knew I would make it. I just had unrealistic dreams that it would happen overnight lol but the one thing about myself is no matter what happens I never doubt myself or what I’m capable of.


How do you stay in shape? and what are your healthy tips?
Well for the longest I was on the studio diet lol up all night recording and eating bad foods. But I’ve become gluten-free due to an allergy so that shed a lot of body fat and then after filming I got back in the gym. Now I go to the gym 5 days a week.

What other hobbies do you engage in when you are not modeling or singing?
I like playing basketball, bowling, going to the movies, shooting pool.


Knowing what you know, what advice would you give to models and Artist who are trying to establish themselves in the entertainment industry?
I would have to say stay light-hearted and don’t take criticism to the heart otherwise you won’t last long. You have to be able to hear No over and over again before you finally get a yes.

What is your Fashion Mantra?
Less Is More.

What has been the biggest hurdle you have had to overcome since the start of your career?
I think trying to balance music modeling and acting. A lot of people chase one but I have been chasing all 3.

Do you have any upcoming project and tell us more about your track “REAL”?
I am currently working on an EP. I have about 4 tracks done. Hoping to release some next month. My single real was mostly inspired by so many people trying to be something they are not and how that eventually comes to light. Also a lot of people judging me by my looks and not really knowing what I’m about or what I’ve been through. I wanted it to show I’m more than a model.

What is your philosophy?
My life is for a season but my time is forever. Meaning I’m not working so people know who I am for now but my name will forever be spoken about amongst the greats

Fashion And Style : Fashioning Your Digital Wardrobe with Dressipi. #Dressipi


London based tech business Dressipi is offering customers their own personal styling service – with a little help from artificial intelligence. Teaming up with some of the biggest names in women’s High Street fashion, the tech isn’t just boosting revenue but helping customers find the clothes they really want – or can’t possibly resist!


Where Did It All Begin?
Dressipi was originally founded by Donna North and Sarah McVittie upon realising there was a real gap in the market to provide women with personalised guidance while shopping online and instore. 

By showing you intelligent recommendations which complement your shape and style preferences, Dressipi takes the hassle out of shopping – you no longer have to scroll through pages of clothes which just aren’t for you!

“We teach you how to know what styles suit your shape – and to suit your style better, That totally eliminates so many garment choices that you have to make and takes the stress out of that aspect of shopping” – Natalie Theo, Style Director at Dressipi.!

So, How Does It Work?
Unique data sets coupled with a comprehensive set of machine learning and AI tech, Dressipi will let retailers match products which are just right for you. When you’re looking for clothes online, you’ll no longer see general recommendations, it will be a completely personalised experience.

The tech will also look at customer, garment and behavioural data to give insights to brands on why certain items are returned. Ultimately, allowing each store to predict what you’ll like.

Think of Dressipi like a human personal stylist. It will look at your profile, how you shop, your wardrobe and how much attention you pay to the latest trends. They’ll then evaluate what you’re likely to be interested in. The more you browse or shop, the more intelligent it will get.

It’s Not Just Technology, It’s Style
Let’s face it, an algorithm offering style recommendations can seem a little strange. Behind the scenes, Dressipi has built a business where tech and style teams work side by side. The whole system has been created by people who know the fashion industry inside out. 

“We have the best algorithms for fashion, in the world, basically. We are leading in this field” – Nick Landia, Chief Data Scientist at Dressipi.

Where Will You See Dressipi’s Recommendations?
So, which retailers actually use Dressipi? The company actually work with about 30% of the women’s fashion market. This includes huge High Street names like the Arcadia Group (Topshop, Wallis, etc.), Shop Direct, John Lewis and many more. When you’re shopping online with these stores, the recommendations you see will be powered by Dressipi.

What Do Brands Get Out of It?
The benefits to customers is obvious to see but why would companies use Dressipi? In fact, the tech has given a 5% - 8% increase in net incremental revenue per visitor – this is a major reason why so many big names are getting behind it. 

It’s also cutting down on the number of returns and unwanted items – which is great news for everybody. After all, no one enjoys returning clothes they bought online.

The Next Step
80% of fashion is still bought in store. This is Dressipi’s next goal. They want to understand how we shop instore as well as what kind of advice and guidance we want while there. The next step is for customers to take the information from their online profile with them anywhere – even to the changing rooms.

Exclusive Interview With The Astonishing David Hand - OTSM's Best Male Model Of The Month.


"Meet David Hand - New York City Creative Director, Video Producer, Husband, and Dad. He Is Also A Brilliant Model, Scouted at Age 51 and Signed To Next Models. I find Him very inspiring, Read His full Interview and I hope you feel inspired by his wise words like I did".

Please tell us a little more about yourself and what was life like growing up?
I grew up in a tony New England suburb that was frankly beyond the means of my parents. They both came from tough places. Mom was a war refugee from Blackhill, Glasgow and my father was an orphan from Brooklyn, New York. So I think they raised us in this ostensibly idyllic setting in order to give my brothers, sisters, and me what they never had. They worked hard and taught us to do the same. I got my first job at 12 and now, at 51, I don’t see an end in sight. My life is perpetual motion. I live between two states and travel on business frequently. I have a family. I am a career graphic designer, having endured relentless technological and platform revolutions, which means I’m in a constant state of learning. In 2012, I opened a corporate video production company with my best friend of thirty-five years. These are the things that keep the lights on, today. The modeling world has added at least half dozen new facets to this latest chapter of my time, here.

How were you discovered, and how has your journey been so far? 
A social media acquaintance asked if I’d be interested in appearing in a public service announcement campaign he was producing. He gave my personal Instagram account information to his photographer, Jason Mickle, who is also a partner in Renew-Faces, a model scout and development agency, here in New York City. Jason approached me separately and said he thought that, with training, I could go the distance. He put me through his rigorous paces, including having me pose while laying down in the Hudson River (the one in which Captain Sully landed Flight 1549, and in which the mafia often dumped bodies, back in the day) on my first day before a camera. Six months and many shoots later, he had developed my portfolio enough that I was ready for agency exposure, and I landed a contract with one of the big ones. That was only six months ago. Since then, I have been building a stronger portfolio every day, by collaborating on creative projects with stylists, makeup artists, photographers, and video producers from New York to Boston to Chicago. I’ve been building a strong, organic social media presence and have begun gracing the hallowed halls of YouTube, with fun and approachable content for men of all ages.

What is your biggest Motivation in Life?
Finding the perfect life balance, understanding that it is a shifting thing, all while providing for my family.

Have you always had a passion for Fashion and Modelling? 
As a career creative, I was always the one hiring the models and never thought much about being on the other side of the camera. I developed a great admiration for the art form, and how models transform themselves when the camera goes live. I’m a latecomer to fashion. Most of my life, I was more enthralled by automotive design. British luxury, in particular. But that’s not too far from fashion, isn’t it? Fabrics, leather, forms, and shiny accessories. I’m fortunate now to be surrounded by people who give me good advice, and when praised over a look in a given shoot, I’m thrilled sometimes to say, “I styled that one.”

Since the start of your career, what is the biggest hurdle you have had to overcome?
To stop chasing dollars. It’s been a lifelong struggle to learn that they don’t make me happy. And I’ve only recently come to this understanding.

Who or What inspire you?
Who? My son, with his determination and open heart, and my partner, who sustains us through thick and thin, who is the bedrock of our life, and who endures the madness of my ways. What? Collaboration. When creative minds and giving spirits unite, fantastic things happen. It’s the generous and creative souls around me that uplift me. I hope in some way I do the same for them.

What are some of your latest and upcoming projects? 
Next month, I have an editorial feature appearing in “Volant” magazine. It was a collaboration with several people very dear to me, in which another model and I portrayed Jackson-Pollock-era painters, working in a Brooklyn artist’s studio. This summer, I spent a joyful day shooting in Red Hook, Brooklyn with the &Sons brand, a British denim company, sporting looks inspired by those of London factory workers from the 1950’s. And I recently spent the day with photographer Corey Lynn Tucker at a rustic cabin in the Connecticut hills, shooting a lifestyle piece that went from Namaste to “Game of Thrones” in the blink of an eye. Finally, I’m working on a personal project that will unite social media, editorial shoots, and short film, full of gritty underworld figures and stellar fashion.

What are your top 5 Health and Fitness Routines that keep you looking Youthful?
1. If you schedule workouts around work, you’re doing it backward.
2. Sugar is the devil. I’m not saying don’t dance with him. I mean… he’s a good time. Just do it as little as possible.
3. Even a bad workout is better than no workout. Find your motivation and GO, even if you only stay for ten minutes.
4. Be Spider-Man, not Superman.
5. Control your portions. Meals should be the size of your fist. Have frequent, healthy snacks.

What are the Pros of being a Model?
The first time a stranger shouts, “I love your work” as you cross 8th Avenue (and every time and place, thereafter). Knowing other up-and-comers who will drop everything to collaborate with you. And the very best is answering, with gratitude, every DM that says, “I watched your videos and they are really helping me!”

Photo By Jason Mickle
What advice would you give to male and female models trying to find their Niche in The Fashion Industry Today?
I’m only six months in and have much to learn, as I find my own way. All I can say is go out on limbs. Don’t compromise yourself or your principles. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable, both physically and emotionally. As Jason Mickle said to me, “You are on that runway or in front of that camera for a reason. Someone believed in you enough to put you there.” But it’s you who has to believe in you, if you want to make it.

If you could change anything about the fashion industry, what would it be?
I’d turn every diva into an unpaid intern, and spend their fortunes to cover the rent for every other unpaid intern until there is nothing left.

Photography - Ean Nigel
Lol! Love this(I’d turn every diva into an unpaid intern)- David What is your Mantra?
These days I’m guided by this: “What can you do with what you already have?” A friend posted that on her profile and its many layers stuck with me. For me, this means giving new life to things once relegated to my attic, whether it’s my father’s camel coat or the biker jacket from my club days. But beyond the material, it means maintaining a constant mental inventory of what I have to give, and how those gifts can help those around me.

Who are some of your favourite Designers? 
Like everyone else, I’m awestruck by the billionaire brands, with their big-budget shows and top-tier talent, bought and paid for. But they don’t need my support. My admiration goes to the newcomer, showing in a garage with broken air conditioning under a train trestle, and serving art on a human platter so good that all you hear is jaws dropping and red plastic cups hitting the floor, before the crowd goes wild.

Photo By- Harry Ondoa
If you weren’t a Model, what would you be doing?
Other than Tyson Beckford, not many people can name many career male models (trust me, I’ve asked). At its best, it can be a lucrative sideline and the oil that greases the wheels of my other aspirations. So it’s less about what I would be doing and more about what I am and will be doing. With each shoot, I learn more skills in front of the camera. As I delve into video, I can feel my on-screen personality emerging. And it’s going to take me to new and exciting places, with the help of my friends. We will create greatness.

Photo By -Harry Ondoa
What Is it like - to be a Plus 50 Male Model?
Never having been any other kind, I have no basis for comparison. I’m very much just a dude. Today, I was that male model whose truck battery died in the parking lot. The one comparing barbecue sauce labels at the supermarket. The one who cut his finger moving an air conditioner. But I’m also the one being interviewed by a British fashion magazine. The one invited to a fancy SoHo party two nights from now. The one who had the privilege to answer two DMs today, from followers who were inspired by him. So being this 50-plus male model is pretty spectacular.

What is the biggest misconception about the Male Modelling Industry?
That we earn a king’s ransom. Remember “Zoolander”? Derek was a top model… who lived with three other guys. #Reality.

Photo By - Sean Howard
Anything else you would like to add…
I am thrilled to be a part of this sea change, in which people-of-a-certain-age have come of age. I am in great company with every other silver mane and seasoned face who works hard to change minds and attitudes about aging. The eternal truth is that agile minds and youthful spirits never go out of style.

Exclusive Interview With Christopher Korey - Best Male Entrepreneur And Style Inspiration Of The Year 2017.


 So I had the Opportunity of interviewing one of the Most Stylish And Humble Men on the Planet " Christopher Korey" who is also a Highly Recommended Private Realtor In New York, I have to say I am absolutely blown away by his remarkable Personality, I always say "To understand A stylish man, we must understand the definition of style" and Christopher Korey to me is the perfect definition of "Style".

It’s truly an Honour to have this interview with you Christopher, Please tell us a little more about yourself and what was life like growing up?
The honor and pleasure is completely mine. I have owned my own real estate brokerage for going on 20 years now. I was born and raised in New York City in a time that is very different from today. Growing up during that time in New York City exposed me to things both good and bad that formed who I am today. While you certainly grow up fast, the exposure to so much diversity, whether it be people, food or culture is amazing. And certainly, while it's not for the faint of heart, I wouldn't trade it for anything. From the incredible exposure to so many different things and to the street smarts that it instilled in me, I feel truly blessed to have grown up here. It’s in my blood and always will be.

What motivated you to become a Private Realtor? And how does your business differ from other brokerages?
It was more by accident really. I originally wanted to get into interior design but couldn't figure out a way to get clients.So I thought I had the brilliant idea of going to get my real estate license, sell an apartment and then get the design job. Well, what happened to me, rarely happens in real estate. I ended up selling a lot of apartments right out of the gate. I learned to love it and then I wanted to become as good as I could become at it. So here I am 20 years later still trying to get better.

What inspired you to go into the “style” business? And who is your Style Icon?
Another happy accident really.Working in real estate you become very close with your clients. As the relationship grows people feel more comfortable opening up to you. A lot of the questions I would get concerned clothing, style, manners, and life overall. It just sort of evolved into dressing my clients as part of the business. And as the business grew, and social media grew, it just sort of took on a life of it's own. That part of it is not so much a business as it is just who I am authentically. If I can pass that along to people, and help them in some way then I’m truly humbled and thankful.

Where do you see men’s fashion going within the next 5-10 years?
I mean no disrespect, but quite honestly I don't care. I'm all about style, not fashion. The thing about fashion is that it is fickle and it comes and goes. Trends change with the winds and it forces you to follow not lead. Style, on the other hand, is eternal and helps to express who you are in your life at that time. Cary Grant could walk down the street today in the same outfit he wore 60 years ago and still be the best-dressed man on the block. Style and elegance never fade. Fashion does.

Who are your favorite designers and places to shop right now?
At this point in my life, I generally favor custom made clothing. There’s just more choice and control over what you want. I do enjoy various accessories from designers such as Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Hermes and rare finds in local shops and boutiques. It's a different story for women. I can always find classic pieces from various designers that will look good today and in 50 years from now. Those are always my favorites.

What is your philosophy in life?
Authenticity and putting the best version of yourself out there every day. Not just sometimes. Every day.

What is your fashion Mantra?
"Style over fashion and make it authentic to you".

Your pictures always stand out and you inspire so many young people out here with your style and charisma, so tell us how do you juggle between being A Private Realtor and Also an Iconic Fashion/Style Guru and Men’s Wear Influencer?
I am beyond humbled and honored, truly.I never really consider myself iconic, or a guru by any means. I'm just me trying to be the best me possible. In doing what I do, time management is one of my biggest issues. The hustle of my life doesn't know what a clock is. It's pretty crazy actually. If what I do inspires even one person, then it was completely worth it.

What does the word “ELEGANCE” mean to you?
Humility and respect.

What can we expect from you in the near future? Anything coming up that has got you excited?
I would have to say my recent collaboration with the finest shirtmaker I know, Anto of Beverly Hills is what I'm most excited about these days. We launch on September 21st and I couldn't be more proud of what we've created and humbled by the opportunity. There are a number of other projects in the works that will also be launching soon, that I am also very excited about. In addition to that, the release of my new website where I can go much more in depth about things that inspire me is also very exciting. It’s like a style and inspiration journal and is very personal to me. It's just a very exciting time right now and I am in awe of it all and completely humbled by it.


Your motivational quotes also inspire me and a lot of other fans out there, have you ever thought of been a Motivational Coach or Speaker and where do you draw your inspiration from?
You are very kind, Thank you so much. I'm truly honored. I have had a number of offers that were very interesting however I never really thought anyone really cared that much about what I have to say. Then social media came along and changed my view on that a little bit. The number of emails and messages I have received truly has been overwhelming and extremely moving. Again, if I've helped even one person then I'm happy. It is something I think about for the future and in the right forum, I would be honored to do it.

Speaking of fashion, I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “fashion fades, style is forever”. What’s your take on this phrase? Do you agree with its message or do you feel fashion does have its place in a man’s lifestyle?
It is an absolute fact. That being said, Everyone has their own individual style. If you have a love of fashion and accept the fact that it changes rapidly, then I'm all for it. As long as what you do and what you wear is authentically you, There's a place for all of it.

There is a vast amount of stylish men gaining popularity on social media and blogs for their incredible sense of style. You certainly are a part of that amazing gang, but what would you say sets you apart from the crowd?
I truly appreciate that. Thank you so much. I admire and respect those guys and truly appreciate what they do and how they do it. That being said, I never compare myself to them or anyone else. What sets me apart is the fact that I'm me and they’re them, and that's the beauty of it. I am my own competition.

What advice would you give to Male and Female individuals hoping to find their Niche in the Fashion/Style Industry?
Try not to follow trends or copy someone else's work. Do what is authentically you, your vision. The world wants to see who you are and how you see things. If it's authentic and it's true to yourself it will find an audience.

Doing what you do as a private realtor is not an easy job, what advice would you give to aspiring Realtors?
The business is very different now than it was 20 years ago when I got into it. I don't envy young brokers getting into this business now. It's not as glamorous, interesting or as fun as it used to be but it still offers great opportunities if you're passionate about it. One thing that has remained constant in this business or any other for that matter are referrals. If you take good care of your clients they will refer you to their friends and coworkers.Take the best care of your clients that you possibly can as they are your best form of advertising.

Style is nothing without the right attitude and confidence. What would you say to those readers who lack confidence in their own style? 
Stop caring what other people think. They don't have to live your life, You do.Wear whatever the hell you want, whenever the hell you want and don't give a damn.When you stop looking for the approval of others confidence comes quick.

Wow, I am blown away by you and your personality, Anything else you would like to add?
I am truly humbled and honored by the opportunity to speak with you and for this amazing recognition. I truly thank you so much.
