How did you start modeling?
JM: I really enjoy clothing and fashion in general. Shoes are my jam so why not try to model them. I want to do something I love and hopefully make a name for myself doing it.
How have you incorporated personal training with your modeling career?
JM: Since I am a personal trainer, I am at the gym quite a bit and lift 6 out of the 7 days a week. Because of this, it is easy to maintain my body and be fit at any time for a fitness shoot. I really pride myself on my physical appearance and the aesthetics of my body as it takes a ton of discipline and work behind the scene.
What do you do outside of modeling?
JM: Outside of modeling, I enjoy going to the gym and lifting. I played soccer in college so I still play indoor soccer every Wednesday night and just like everyone else I love to watch Netflix. Most likely I am vibing to some good music while doing these things.
What is one thing people might know about you?
JM: One thing people may not know about me is that I absolutely can't swim. I literally just sink. If I had to save my life I could do that but just staying in one spot in water for an extended period of time is bad news.
When posing, what are some thoughts that come to mind?
JM: When posing I honestly try to have as much fun as possible. the one thought that constantly runs through my head is that "I'm a bad boy, but still go to church" that phrase can get me to do a devilish smirk or make me laugh depending on the situation.
What’s your star sign?
JM: Im an Aquarius. Water sign for life. We are the most lovable and creative sign there is. Conversation over haha
What brand would you love to work with and why?
JM: I would love to work with Gym Shark which is a fitness brand that tailors towards my physique. If it was fashion I would love to work with a high end brand such as Gucci or Versace or even Luis Vuitton. I like nice things, but who doesn't.
Who do you look to for model inspiration?
JM: Younes Bendjima aka Kourtney Kardashians boyfriend is the model that I follow the closest. I feel like we have similar styles and taste in fashion he just happens to be a whole lot more popular than myself haha.
What would you say is your best/favorite asset?
JM: My best/favorite asset is probably my body's physique. I stay in shape year around and I don't think any girl would argue about that being my best feature.
One goal you wish to accomplish with modeling for 2018.
JM: One goal I would love to accomplish is to get representation from a bigger agency outside of my state such as NEXT or FORD. I plan on building up my portfolio this year and head back out to LA to see if I can accomplish this towards the end of the year.
