While I am new to the world of modeling, I have been in SL for a little over three years. I am a fashion blogger for the Boystown Closet and MAD Image. I am also a member of the Boystown Production Team, so you will often find me parked and chatting at one party or another. My interest in the creativity of designers as well as the growing development of men’s clothing options in SL really spurred my desire to take the next step into modeling (it also did not hurt that I was finally graduating in RL, giving me much more free time!). I had the honor of winning the Face of Menswear Fashion Week earlier this year, and it was a great experience. Oh, and I play a wicked game of Greedy!
The reputation of Mister Virtual World definitely precedes itself. Despite being new to the modeling industry, I think very few people have not heard about THE competition for male models. On a basic level, I thought it would be a great way to gain some experience and exposure as a newcomer to the industry. Moreover, I have met a number of inspiring models over the past few months, and quite a few have participated in the MVW contest. These are people I respect and admire. I feel I can bring to the competition my experience styling over the past two years as a fashion blogger. And let’s not forget to mention that I am the only MVW candidate representing gingers this year! 😀
The title of MVW would no doubt open a number of doors and opportunities. One of my proudest accomplishments in SL was being a part of the Broadway Cares “Fight Against AIDS” charity event in 2011. I was a part of the team that won over 700,000L for this incredible cause. I am involved in charities in both RL and SL, and I would love to continue this initiative as MVW. It is definitely a great platform that gives voice to raise awareness throughout the SL community. In addition, I would love to have the opportunity to help give attention to male fashion in SL to promote the industry.
