Who or what last made you laugh out loud
Anything my grandparents say to each other whilst arguing is pure gold, but most recently probably when I was in an uber with my girlfriend, I was trying to ask the foreign cab driver whether he had an auxiliary cable so I could plug in my music, my futile attempts where interrupted by my girlfriend who explained "aux cable, aux, you know orcs, like Lord of the Rings!!"
Who or what inspires you
Aside from my family. I'm heavily inspired by music and film. But to get specific I draw a lot of inspiration from the late Robin Williams, your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman, and martial arts extraordinaire Jackie Chan.
Your words to live by
If you can't you must, and if you must you can. Is that cheesy? & Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly. I love philosophical quotes, I could go all night. Must be the Greek in me.
What cause or causes do you feel passionate about
#BlackLivesMatter , which I feel is an interesting cause because it's unbelievably relevant but at the same time misjudged and overlooked by many. In a time where the Internet connects the entire world it's really opened my eyes to goings on not only in my country, but all over the world. I also dislike Donald Trump, what a chump, does that count as a cause?
Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given
Ignore the boos. They usually come from the cheap seats. Definitely not the best, but the first that came to mind.
Your London in an hour
What a hard question, I think the beauty of London is that it has so many faces, every time I get lost finding a casting I stumble across a new, unique side to this city. I'd spend 30 minutes fine dining in a suit in west London, then after a swift outfit change spend the second 30 mins tearing up the dance floor at an RnB club in East or South. Did I answer that right?
Your favourite London view
Anywhere at 5:30am in the summer
Are you working on anything at present
With a university degree in design and advertising I keep myself busy. Currently developing my lifestyle, travel and fashion website ano.co, working on launching a new platform for models via Instagram @modelsbymodels, and setting up a YouTube channel with my two brothers where we will review, critique and discuss films, trailers and other geek related topics.
Describe your style
I try not to follow trends too closely, but otherwise build a wardrobe of classic pieces. Recently catch me in a pair of tailored trousers, plain t shirt, with a statement jacket, or standout trainer/shoe. Simple and clean, with an edge. Also love to finish off an outfit with a watch, pair of sunglasses or hat from an interesting or unknown brand. I love the aesthetics of brands such as Sandro, A.P.C & Ami.
Whose style do you most admire, past or present
When it comes to tailoring I love the relaxed, nonchalance of Frank Sinatra but also the oozing of class that surrounds Tom Ford. For everything else, the obvious James Dean, Marlon Brando, Steve McQueen. And to go in the complete other direction, Frank Ocean.
Favourite piece from the ENLIST collection
I remember thinking everything was extremely clean, well cut and sharp. But I think my favourite is the Kapok swim shorts and Incognito sunglasses, I loved them so much I took them away with me to Havana Cuba and the colour really popped. Overall the brand was great, not only the clothes, but the ethos behind the brand and family qualities possessed by the team.
