Model Where are you from?

I’m from the small but popular fishing village of Rocky Point in Clarendon.

How would you spend your ideal weekend?

My ideal weekend involves be spending quality time with my girlfriend. Swimming in some deep waters at the beach while we listen to alternative, pop and house music and then topping off the day with dinner at Majestic Sushi at Villa Ronai.

What’s your go to spot in Jamaica?

When I get the chance to go home, I love to chill at Fisherman’s Grill in Rocky Point. In Kingston, I love chilling at Usain Bolt’s Tracks & Records for a drink and to catch a quick game.

Wheich country is number 1 on your list to check off? Italy. The architecture is second to none.

Which top models would you most like to work with?

I would love to work with my fellow Pulse models Jeneil Williams and Nell Robinson and of course Naomi Campbell.
