I had the great fortune to sit next to Scott at dinner one night at RT 2011. What a gracious gentleman! He made sure to answer all our questions and spoke with all of us at the table. AND, when I took my photo with the Mr. Romance contestants, I got to sit next to him again!
A: I've always wanted to own a restaurant...I love to eat (as most folks do) and now that I'm heavy into bodybuilding I'm constantly trying to find good recipes that are good for you and loaded with the stuff you need to build strong, lean muscle. I'd love to be able to share that with the people that would honor me enough to come to my establishment. Maybe someday! :)
Q: Congrats on your romance book covers! Tell us about the shoot you just did for Angela Knight.
A: The shoot for Angela Knight came out of nowhere. I'm affiliated with a new venture called On Your Cover and they were promoting me at RWA I think, and Angela saw Cindy Holby's latest cover for Quicksilver, which features me, and loved the look. So, I now became Tristan for her trailer promoting her latest book. Renee Needham is 1 of 2 photographers that I work with on a regular basis here in Columbus, and was very helpful and patient as I got the look that Angela wanted. Angela also bought additional photo's that I did a few day's after her shoot with Ken Tilley of Kens Fotoimages!
A: JD DeWitt is the owner of The View Talent Agency and she approached me Saturday night at the RT Con in LA and asked me to contact her after the competition to talk further. I explained to her that I was self-representing and that it was a daunting task. She has been an absolute GODSEND in helping me to make sense of this industry.
Q: You’ve entered modeling competitions, including RT’s Mr. Romance 2011. Tell us about them. Did you find other contestants friendly? Helpful?
A: HAHA...I almost forgot it was a competition in LA because I was having so much fun meeting so many great people. And to say my piece..I think it's a terrible idea to cancel the Mr. Romance competitions for future RT's. And getting back to the Question at hand...yes,. the other contestants were VERY helpful this year at RT. I made some good friends and picked up a lot of advice and tips from the other guys. Each guy had their own style of how to get to know the ladies and how to get their name out. My biggest, and most fun, was the dance floor at night. I had an absolute blast dancing.
A: I absolutely love this question...cause its easy to answer *grin* I was raised around fast car's, drag racing, and that whole 1950's era was popular with all the car shows I grew up going to with my family. So getting to play Zuko in Grease, was my ultimate favorite. Stranded at the Drive-in was my favorite song from the show. Zuko came naturally to me because of being around race cars and such all my life. Sleepy Hollow I had a blast with because I love horror movies. And Crane's quirks were a blast to have fun with. Little Shop of Horrors was actually my VERY first theater experience and I had a blast. I did that my senior year of high school...and I was dating the leading girl, so that helped :)
Q: Obviously, you can sing and dance! What training did you go through?
A: Singing training was by my high school choir teacher..she saw my acting ability and knew that I had a good voice. I just didn't know it yet. So she talked me into trying out for Little Shop of Horrors and with some confidence building, and lots of voice coaching, I pulled it off well enough that I didn't get hit with tomato's. Dancing? Well...that just comes natural. I am blessed with great rhythm.
A: The one's I've been to were very warm. They were all in College and only for the first one. You are given a script, not necessarily from the show that you will be doing, but typically something that requires some tone changes in your voice, and also some emotion. Some directors will require you to memorize it..and they pay attention to see how well you can remember it with a short period of time to learn it. I love that kind of pressure...I thrive off of it.
A: Well, I'm hoping to make it onto a "PRINT" full size novel sometime soon. I met so many great authors when at RT...I'm hoping that I can continue to make a great impression and a author will give me the opportunity. IF we are talking accomplishments in general...I'm crossing my fingers and praying every day to be hired onto the Columbus Fire Department. Nothing, I mean nothing would be greater than watching my son climb around on the fire engine of the department that I'm stationed at.
A: I have a pretty strict diet with carb's and sugars. I make sure to take in over 200g of protein a day as well as close to 3000 calories. I weight train at least 5 days a week and I eat, and workout like my favorite saying says: "eat like a bodybuilder, train like a power lifter" I heard that somewhere, but it rings true. I'm naturally blessed with good skin and it has stayed young looking for me. Also with my martial arts background...I keep tabs on my technique and form at all times.
Q: Favorite food?
A: Lasagna or a New York Strip steak...about 18oz worth.
Q: Favorite drink?
A: Well...if we are talking good for me drink, then it's a tall, cold, glass of milk. If we are meaning what I drink on my cheat days (or mental healthy days, whichever you want to call it) then I love a cold Full Throttle Energy Drink :)
A: Well...this is one that I'm sure has been answered by guys with the "walk down the sandy beach and a candle lit meal that costs way more than its worth"...well, ladies, that just ain't me. Born and raised in southwestern PA, out in the country and definitely DOWN in a hollar...that type of stuff just doesn't fly with me. Beach's are nice...but there's NOTHING like sitting in the back of a nice tall truck over-looking a golden field at sunset. Easton Corbin playing on the radio, and my arms wrapped around keeping ya warm. Of course, that's after I cooked a killer meal (yes, I cook too) that consisted of a nice warmly cooked steak, and a robust, oak tasting wine.
Thank you all for reading..I can be a little long-winded so I apologize :) but I am honored to have this opportunity to allow you ladies to get to know me. Please, do NOT hesitate to send me a friend request on my Facebook page. I will update it weekly with new photo's and information on my career and whats going on. I also will be working with certain agencies to have giveaways on my page. I wanted to have a little more control of my fan page so I did a whole profile, instead of just a "likable" fan page.
Thank you all again for reading, and take care!
