He is a single dad for ten years and raising his three kids by himself. Two teenage girls: Pamela who is currently in High School, and Priscilla, who just finished her first year of College. His son Barry is the oldest. He is a bit less emotional then his girls. He is currently in the Air Force Reserves. According to his own experience, this is what he tells a guy who wants to be a model: There is a lot of completion out here in the commercial end of modeling.

Remember most auditions it is not about how good looking you are, it is about the look that they are looking for. Most people doing the everyday Business to business or store catalogs and local advertisements are just everyday people like you and me. It may not always be glamorous. To succeed in any field you need to push yourself. So get out there and push
