About me
facebook, www.facebook.com/tommychavana

just an fyi i have only used a mua in my headshots towards the bottom of my pics page everything else is all natural

i am looking to break the barriers when it comes to the normal model. being in a wheelchair doesn't stop me anymore then it does the stereotypical model i just happen to be in a wheelchair. i am willing to try almost any type of modeling when given the chance and will work hard to give you what you expect. i was "normal" until i was in a car accident when i was 16 in which i broke my neck which resulted in my paralysis.  that hasn't held me back neither will anything else. i went tandem skydiving on july 8th 2007 just to give you an idea of how i live my life which is to the fullest. so please don't take one look and think i can't do something simply because i'm in a wheelchair. others have done that and i went on to prove them wrong.


i am not looking to get paid an extreme amount at this moment as i am still fairly new to this and am trying to build my portfolio as well. when it comes to modeling i am willing to do nearly anything i can except full nudity i would prefer to keep my pants on. however when it comes to the barriers, i want to break the stereotypical model persona as someone who has to be able bodied as i once was and now would like to show the general public that there is no limit to what a person with a disability can do. if you ask me everyone is disabled in their own way, it might not be physically but perhaps mentally, or they have something from their past that is holding them back. hence disabling them to an extent if they know it or not. so in my eyes everyone has their own disability in one way or another.

a couple random things i have a tattoo on my right forearm of a cross and my tongue is pierced. oh and i have my b.s. in business management minor in finance. i have done motivational speaking engagements at universities and conferences. i have also taken some acting classes. if u have any questions feel free to ask, i'll answer anything and everything.

hopefully u have made it this far, when i am doing shoots i will always have an assistant with me to help with wardrobes and such so don't be afraid to try shooting something new (ME).
