We first met Robbie at one of our photoshoots spring of ’17. His positivity and hard work made long days shooting a breeze. We really hit it off and he’s gone from go-to model to a friend of ours. In this week’s 3 Questions, we learn a little about life outside the studio.

If you weren't modeling and acting, what would you be doing?

If I weren’t a Ledbury model, I’d more than likely be running Myson’s Tire. Myson’s is the family tire business back home in South Carolina. Modeling was my ticket to travel the world and gain a new perspective on life and the type of life I can lead. Hell, I still help the fam out from time to time.

What advice would you give your 20-year-old self?

Stay present, bang on the guitar frequently, exercise is necessary, positivity is key, it’s a mental universe, challenging myself is good, and realize that the only person’s approval that I need most in this world is my own.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Putting some roots down where I feel home, drinking coffee and IPA’s, traveling, then returning home, working in the yard, hanging with my family, my kids, my lady, my dog, riding motorcycles, traveling, and working hard.
