Check out Greg – long time actor and now rising fit model super star – as our February Model of the Month! This Iowa native is taking the Big Apple by storm – and we’re excited to go along for the ride! Continue reading to learn a bit more about him…
1. Where you are from?
I’m from a small town in Iowa called Newton, went to college in the Chicago area, and graduate school in Kansas City. Currently living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and loving it!
2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
Hobbies include reading, biking, theatre, and poker. I’m a warm-weather lover, so if I can be outside in a park or on the beach I’m having a good day.
3. Favorite clients from the biz?
Love working with Arctix Bottoms. Everyone that I’ve meet there, from photographers to designers to factory workers to management is so friendly and hard-working. There’s always a fun vibe in the room with them. Plus I’ve had the privilege of doing both ecomm and fit with them, and I’ve learned so much working in different facets of the process.
4. Dreams/goals any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
I’d really like to work with Tahari, I had a go see there when I first started working with Bicoastal that went really well, and I just loved the energy of the place.
I’d love to expand my fit client database in 2017; the more I do it, the more I enjoy it!
Print work also holds a fascination for me, I think I’ve got a unique look and wouldn’t mind holding a glass of whiskey in a magazine someday. 🙂
5. Career highlights?
My primary work is in theatre and film, so acting with Toni Collette in the tv show Hostages has got to be a lifetime favorite. Other favorite roles include Black Stache in Peter and the Starcatcher, Leontes in A Winter’s Tale, and an upcoming role on the Starz network show Power!
6. How did you get into modeling or acting?
I’ve been acting and in front of audiences my whole life. Started in church and community theatre as a kid and just never stopped through high school and college and grad school and now professionally. I think the only way you can fail is to quit. And now because I didn’t quit, I’m working with amazing people modeling and acting. It’s what I love to do and I don’t intend to stop. Onwards and upwards.
