Interview with this Month’s Featured Model: Dusty Tailored
How did you get into modeling?
I had a photographer from Cleveland approach me and asked if I’d be interested in modeling and I figured that I wasn’t getting any younger so why not throw myself out there and try something that was completely out of my comfort zone. (I used to hate my photo taken).
What are your goals in the profession? Do you see it as a full-time occupation or an avocation?
It’s a bit of both. I’d love to see this take off where I can model full time, but right now I still have a full time job and model on the side.
If it's an avocation, what are your other career goals?
This is more of an avocation right now. I’m currently a Supervisor over fabrication and paint with my current company and I also own my own business, powder coating. If the modeling continues to grow I’d also like to create my own clothing line and possibly try my hand at acting.
Looking as good as you do isn't easy. What are your training methods?
I work out/train 6-7 days a week. I own a lot of my own equipment and also have a gym membership. I change up my routines about every 6 weeks and also add in that dreaded CARDIO.
How about diet?
I try to keep my diet low carb high protein. I eat a lot of eggs, chicken, tuna, protein shakes, drink at least a gallon of water every day, and take many different supplements.
Do you plan to compete in bodybuilding or fitness shows or have you already?
Not planning to compete in any fitness shows just really enjoying the modeling. If someone was to approach me about competing I probably wouldn’t turn it down though.
How do you kick back and relax?
I enjoy spending time with my family. My favorite time of day is at 8PM when I cuddle up with my daughter for at least a half hour before she has to go to bed. I also enjoy riding my bike, working out, going hiking, going to car shows, and just vegging on the couch watching tv with my kids.
How about some favorites?
Singer/Musician or Group: This is a very difficult question as I listen to nearly everything, from Elvis to Metallica and everything in between with a side of Garth Brooks and Brantley Gilbert and I have been listening to a lot of Imagine Dragons lately through my headphones.
Actor: I’m a sucker for action movies so a couple of my favorite actors are Bruce Willis and Jason Statham.
Actress: Angelina Jolie and Halle Berry are always good to watch.
Movie: I really like psychological thrillers and movies that make you think and one of my favorites is Frequency.
Song: One of my favorite songs is Phil Collins’s In the Air Tonight
Book: My favorite book is Christine by Stephen King and I also enjoy Books of Quotes. I have written many poems and short stories myself through the years for my kids, nothing published just for fun.
How would you state your most important value in life?
I’m a man of my word and very old fashioned. I believe in doing what I say I’m going to do when I say I’m going to do it. I have built great friendships and working relationships based on this principal. You can be the greatest at what you do but if you don’t show up to do it you can’t be good at anything!!!
Thanks, Dusty. Great working with you.
