What is your official job title?
When it comes to “job title” I always introduce and see myself as a “Content Creator.”
What inspired your journey as a modern-day “Influencer” with over 585,000 followers and counting?
A good aspect that inspired my journey is social media. Being able to see so many different people from around the world sharing their lives in pictures and videos, inspired me to create something I have a passion for and share it online with others.
What was the “Snowball” that led to your first burst of supporters putting you on the map? Was it your Vlog, Blog, your indulgence in Fashion or Fitness?
It has to be fitness for sure! Before I became who I am today, I used to be a fitness enthusiast and competitor. After, I managed to inspire a decent community with my fitness and lifestyle, and that’s when fashion came on board as well.
What exciting projects are you currently working on or involved with?
One of the very exciting projects that I am working on at the moment is building a fresh new website that will give my followers the ability to access different features. I can’t give too many details right now but stay tuned :). Another cool and exciting project I’m working on at the moment is creating a scent with my name with a luxury perfume brand. All the details will be released soon on my website and social platforms. You will LOVE IT!
Who was your first style icon and why?
I don’t have a favourite Style Icon. There are many inspirational style icons out there that bring inspiration to the table.
Describe your personal style and how it’s evolved during your experience in the public eye?
I’d like to say that I’m a man of many styles. I love my streetstyle looks as much as I love my tailored and smart/casual ones. I always concentrate on giving everything for everyone out there that they can get inspired from.
Who takes the majority of your photos and what equipment do you use?
I started with a tripod and a remote control connected to my camera taking pictures of myself in the streets of London. At this stage I work with close friends who are also content creators and most important passionate about photography. My main camera and lens that I shoot with is a Canon 5D Mark IV with 50mm 1.4f lens.
What challenges you most in your day-to-day grind?
The ability to make decisions on certain projects – sometimes you have to go for it and risk things. What’s life without challenges?
What do you consider the greatest satisfaction of your career at the moment?
I believe the greatest satisfaction right now is being able to inspire people from around the world on a daily basis. There’s no better feeling than a random stranger stopping you on the street saying that you inspire them.
It’s far more than snapping “pretty pictures.” What heavy lifting goes on behind the scenes that’s creating your self-made brand?
From my perspective it all comes down to dedication, discipline and hard work towards it. Of course, connecting with certain individuals and keeping up with the networking is also very important.
What drives you to stay connected? What vision/message do you want to share with your followers or the world?
Back to question number 9 – being able to inspire a massive community out there, that’s probably one of the biggest drives that makes me stay connected.
As a lifestyle blogger, you’re known for dabbling in whatever you desire. Any advice for those with multiple passions, but unsure of the steps needed to transform them into a lucrative career that supports their ‘Best Life’?
I guess if you give 100 per cent and put all of your focus into your passion, it will become a full-time job in no time. I always say that if you want something as much as you want to breathe, then you will have it because you’ll do everything possible to obtain that. Most important is to believe in yourself and always be ‘active’ because there’s so much competition these days in any industry. If you want to get to the top, keep hustling and don’t be scared to make decisions.
