About Me

The phrase “professional can often encompass a variety of things, especially emphasizing verbal vocations like education, psychology, law and politics. But professionalism–especially in teh sense of some of the most glorious fields–entertainment, spots, military, etc.–professionalism also includes one’s compulsion to initiation and action and is a valuable occupation to master. Especially in areas like customer service, the verbalization of an apology is great, but what’s even better is the professional who can apologize and take the risk to provide the patron an extra helping, garish or drink–on the house!

The incorporation of modeling into my own professional repetition is a great example of a theory of John Krumboltz called “Planned Happenstance”. Coming from a family of counselors, I was always exposed to the humanities and encouraged to gain experience in them as a viable professional goal. My older sister, being my first role model, provided me guidance on film analysis, screenwriting and theatrics. But in my own masculine way, I translated these things often into comic book arts and the mastery of artistic, pencil an paper rendering. However, between high school and college, I made the intentional cultural decision to master and major in Japanese language, in addition to formally studying the arts. And in that planning, my happenstance set me up for performance art related opportunities: teaching ESL, singing in in international exhibitions, commercial acting and most substantially modeling.

Modeling–often both over-glorified and undervalued–is an integral part of our human experience be it in testing applications of experiments in science and empirical observation; understanding light and texture in the arts; or just role modeling to help people master interactive processes. One of our brain’s largest regions, the occipital lope, functions like a video card to help us display a constant amount of visual information from which we emulate, learn and synthesize into our lifelong adaptations.

However the “Modeling Industry” as it is known focuses on the more creative application over the scientific ones and I’ve been developing a unique approach after working with great local San Diego region photographers such Bela Dornon, David Gray, Ken Serge, J.J. Williams, Fausto Palafox and Elliot Russ. In my own approach I provide the perspective of being a model with barriers–a dark African-American skin, masculine demeanor, artistic experience, Pacific Rim heritage, etc. I also share some of my own very unique and verifiable scientific understandings from my studies in psychology, sociology, fitness, counseling and more. I also have a unique gender studies approach that highlights Men’s Studies, female-empowering-masculinity and activism. Because my first peer-aged role model is my older sister, I feel it is my duty to stand against the problematic issues of the industry: models who are underage; the imposition of male aesthetic standards upon women; glass ceilings for performers; and incomplete and exploitative business models.

For this reason, as a photographer, my primary demographic are my peers: older, professional men who are in pursuit of transcendence, self-exploration and improvement in the most Carl Jungian sense of individuation. I am always open to working with others ethically and consensually with specific inquiry

Below are samples of my work which are also partially available at professional networking site Model Mayhem, which I encourage others taking the venture to join. However working with me we will develop your appreciation of not just your figure and your portfolio, but also your mind and your resume, and your spirit and your philosophy.

My modeling experience includes simple fashion, editorial, traditional life drawing, highly adult erotica and even adult video. One of the most valuable lessons I have been able to apply from counseling is understanding Maslow's Needs Hierarchy as they apply to human capacity. Not only is my physical artistry inclusive of a second degree black belt in martial arts and cross training in yoga and weightlifting, my formal education on the arts includes curriculum on the Renaissance, modern art, education abroad at Osaka University of Arts and a rich philosophical basis in East Asian arts. As a model not only do I bring the sensual mastery of my body, I also bring a sophisticated epistemology of aesthetics.
