Josh, I'm really flattered to interview you, to start
this interview off, though you're very famous, please
tell me some brief background information.
for taking the time to ask me these questions! Iím from
Cape Cod, MA. (Massachusetts) For those who donít know,
Cape Cod is a peninsula, and a province that sticks
out into the water off of the north east coast of America.
I grew up in a small town call, Falmouth most noted
for its ferry to Martha's Vineyard. I now live in New
York City in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. But my Lovely parents
still live there. It really is a wonderful place to
go back to. I have an amazing younger sister who spends
her days saving lives in Florida. She is amazing!!!!
And will also be up to NY this fall, to run the New
York Marathon. I am blessed to have such a wonderful
I was schooled in my hometown during my earlier years,
and then home schooled on a boat for a year by my folks,
pre high school.. I then went off to a boarding school
called Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.
However, I got the boot my senior year, and graduated
from Falmouth public high school.
tried for college in California, as most east coasters
do, but I was too late with the application so I ended
up in Tampa, Florida at the University of Tampa (The
next best thing?). There I studied marketing, and communications
and came out in 3.5 years with a BA, and lots of party
-How did you get into modeling?
Did it happen by chance or it was something you had
Some time in mid college, I came
up to New York, to stay with a buddy in Long for the
summer. I knew someone who knew someone, who was going
to help me find work. I found myself in promoterís office
in lower SoHo waiting... The main man, the guy I was
supposed to see was wrapped up in some meeting, so I
started talking to this guy next to me. Turns out, the
young fellow next to me, named Ozzy, had his own work
for me, and I worked that summer as a promoter in New
York city promoting high end clubs to high end people.
Itís was amazing to me, seeing all that especially coming
from such a small town. Ozzy offered me a room in his
Queens apartment, and took me under his wing. Every
time there was a very big event, Ozzy would take invites
into the agencies to get some of the girls to go, and
they did, Ozzy knew everyone. He introduced me to a
few of his friends in a few agencies, and next thing
you know, Iím in Miami jumping on a trampoline in a
speed on the beach. Who knewÖ
the most exciting thing about being a male model?
can now tie a bowtie!!!
opinion about the fashion world? Do you think it's glamorous?
can see how it would look glamorous.. I mean thatís
the name of the game right? We sell that feeling. Fashion
-Let's talk about music,
how did your interest in it start?
loved music. Had a piano in the house as a kid but never
had a lesson. Iíd just sit there pushing key and making
up patterns. It wasnít until my good buddy, Ted showed
my how to play let it be, by the Beatles, that I really
got it going. I took those chords and rearranged them,
and then rearranged them again until I made a hundred
songs. In fact, I never learned to play anyone elseís
songs again, until just the other day... Iíd say every
song Iíve ever written has some how; at one point come
from let it be.
-I know you finished your
first album as a songwriter, composer and producer,
"Mamas Boy Goes Digital", some months ago
and I listened to some of the songs on myspace, MySpace.com/Mamasboygoesdigital, what inspired you
when you wrote those songs?
Mamasís Boy Goes
Digital was just the first project I took seriously
and finished. It was more about getting it done then
anything else, and inspired by life. I
have a second
one coming out in a month or so, with a different artist,
and a different sound. Itís not done yet, but you can
get a sneak preview at MySpace.com/Thebeachproject.
The artistís name is Kerry Beach, and she is a wonderful
singer, and an even better person.
would you describe your music? What audience would it
most appeal to?
The music is eclectic, and
tries to be different, but that is relative... What
a hard thing to describe, music. Itís like when you
go in for a haircut, and you have this idea in mind.
You tell the hair stylist this, and that thinking youíve
explained it well, and you have. But rarely does it
come out the way youíve imagined. Itís one of those
things that you just have to listen to. But hopefully
everyone will be able to find something they like in
would you describe who you are? Which adjectives would
you use to describe yourself?
a big one, Iím a hundred different people all at once,
arenít we all? Youíd have to decide for yourself.
guess it will be a frequent question for you but what's
the meaning of your tattoos?
They are all
scars and reminders, some good and some bad, but there
is one I think we all know the meaning of, and that
