Tell us a little bit about your career as a hockey player.

Last season, I won the Robertson Cup with Lone Star Brahmas which was the highlight of my career so far. I also got the opportunity to play hockey for Merrimack College, and that's just what I needed—some more time to get better before I enter my professional career. In July, I was invited to Philadelphia Flyers development camp, which is a camp for young and talented players that might have a future in the National Hockey League.

How did you initially enter the world of modeling?

I was scouted on social media. After, I went to LA and met with Damon Baker.

What are your favorite songs at the moment?

"Cant Hold Us" by Macklemore, "Love$ick" by Mura Masa and A$AP Rocky, and "Byte" by Martin Garrix.

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

People that change plans.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see play the lead role as you?

I am really interested in acting and that's what my mom always wanted me to do, so it would be fun to play myself! But if it was a Hollywood name I would like it to be Leonardo DiCaprio, of course, because he's amazing. Or maybe Cole Sprouse—people say we look alike.

If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?

My grandma's chicken curry.

What are your three biggest fears?

I don't really have any fears other than seeing anything bad happen to my sisters.

Who inspires you? 

Karl Pilkington.

If you could be any character in fiction, who would you be?

I would be Black Panther because he's awesome. Not only is his style cool but he is a king.

If you were a car, what type would you be?

I would be a Koenigseggregera because they're Swedish, fast and good looking ;)
