BMW: You are a sanitation worker by profession... What exactly do you do?
Brian: I dispose of garbage in residential areas. Help to keep neighborhoods clean.
BMW: While in the gym you say people mistake you for a trainer?
Brian: One time while I was working out and a woman came up to me and asked if I was a personal trainer. When I told her that I wasn't she told me that she was impressed with my body and asked if I could still personally train her.
BMW: Well... Did you?
Brian: I didn't train her. If she were to hurt herself the last thing I would need is to be sued... that wouldn't be good.
BMW: How long have you been working on perfecting your body? ?
Brian: I am still working on it. I always worked out but I began to sculpt my body about 3 years ago. Some people say that my body is perfect but I still believe I have work to do.
BMW: What has been your approach/road to the modeling industry? What made you get into it and what successes have you had so far? ?
Brian: What made me get into modeling… Well… compliments from people who thought I was already a model. I approach the modeling industry head first with confidence. I surfed the internet and started posting videos and pictures on youTube. That is where I got my first experience. A clothing designer found me through youTube and asked me to be in his fashion show. Putting myself out there through many web sites, I have met a lot of photographers, models and designers. In my success I have been able get more experience through TFP's and paid gigs and learn how to be more comfortable in front of the camera.
BMW: Some of your modeling sometimes walks on the edge of being sexual... and you often pose nude. What, if any, is your limit? And what type of profile are you trying to build?
Brian: Limits, yes I have some. Modeling does walk on the edge of sexuality and nudity. My limit is no erotic or pornographic images. Sex sells but in the industry you want to make sure that the line between sensual sexual and erotic sexual are not crossed. I have done artistic to sensual modeling and that is part of what I want to build in my profile. I am building a strong fashionable profile with the sensual and artistic views in it. This keeps a range for me to sell as a model. I want to be versatile but yet still keep me.
BMW: You are married... Tell us a little about your wife and about the support you get from her. How does she take the attention you have been getting especially with regards to some of the more sexual images.
Brian: My wife is a strong, loving and supportive woman. She has been supporting me since the beginning of my modeling. She went with me to my first gig and has been there ever since. She does have a limit though. She does not agree with erotic and pornographic images. Surprisingly she takes the attention that I have been getting very well. She knows with modeling will come the attention. She is very proud of me and of all the images that have been taken.
BMW: What would you say is your greatest asset as a model?
Brian: I am told my greatest asset is my face. I get compliments on having a great facial structure. I feel though my whole body is my asset.
BMW: "Getting into fitness modeling I want to better myself and my body on a physical and mental level and also to see how far I can push myself to that point of near perfection," you said in an interview. That point of near perfection. What else do you think you need to work on to get there?
Brian: I don't feel that I am near perfection. I may have a high bar for myself so I need to work on everything. I want more definition and more strength. If I were near perfection then there would be nothing for me to work hard for.
BMW: What is your work out routine??
Brian: Right now I do 3 days calisthenics and 2 days weight. The reason for my current workout regimen of mostly calisthenics and less weights is to keep my body tight and athletic. It's good to change your workout routine every 2 to 3 weeks so that your body doesn't get used to the same routine.
BMW: What do you hope to accomplish by being on BlackMenWomen.com and where would you want to see yourself at the end of 2009 and beyond?
Brian: Through being on BlackMenWomen.com I want to gain more modeling experience and hope to further my career with modeling contracts. I see myself modeling with some of the best and beyond that opening my own modeling agency.
