The city of Atlanta is one the most sought after locations for the filming of many movies, tv shows, and videos over the years. I recently was cast in a video for Roc Nation artist, Nicole Bus, for her latest single, “Mr. Big Shot”! Which called for TALL men to be cast as the videos Mr. Big Shots, well as it turned out most of the guys weren’t over 6’2″ and I was for sure the tallest. Right before we began shooting on the set was someone who’s was near mine, a very cool laid back guy with long locs. I quickly realized that we had been following each other on Instagram for a while now, this guy really doesn’t need any introduction especially if you’ve been following him on Instagram! He’s been doing a lot of modeling, video, television, and hosting work, I’m truly impressed by his hustle!

When was the moment you took notice of your height or that you were tall?
I took notice my senior year in high school; people always mentioned how tall I was, but I really didn’t think that I was as tall as they were saying lol
Do you feel your height has made you different?
Yes, because it’s amazing how much of an attention grabber that my height is.
How often do you get asked questions about your height?
Every single day! Unless I don’t leave from inside of my own home. Haha
Did your height/size impact your life differently over the years?
My height has definitely impacted my life differently over the years because I honestly think it has worked in my favor for a significant amount of gigs as well as modeling. So I’ll say that my size has impacted my life in a very positive way.
You attended an HBCU, right?
Yes, HBCU LIFE!
How would you best describe your experience at Alabama State University?
My experience at Alabama State University was the best experience of my life thus far! My experience there was a fun, learning, exciting, experience.
You’re also greek right?
Yes, I am a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Incorporated.
What would you say was the biggest lesson your college experience taught you?
There are actually two lessons. The first lesson that my college experience taught me was how to adapt to different people, different environments, and different settings. The second lesson is that you’re already equipped with the tools to do whatever it is that you want to do; you just have to reach in and pull them out.
How important do you think it is for HBCU’s to be supported by Alum?
It’s very important for HBCUs to be supported by Alums because the future of HBCUs still needs the way to continue to be paved by the ones before them.
What did you major in at ASU?
We officially met on the set of Nicole Bus “Mr. Big Shot” video shoot, which turned out to be a pretty long day, give us your resume of some of the other things your recently done.
That day did turn into a very long day; I don’t think that there’s a such thing as a short day on set lol!

How long have you been modeling and acting what your dream job or role?

My dating life is cool. My relationship is still one where we’re both career-focused so it works.
