a girl can appreciate a little chocolate...
I'm not sure how I find the wonderful men for my site, but Vernon was in the right place at the right time. He had perfect timing... and now I get to share him with all of you!
Oh, and Vernon...I'm a Cowboys fan too!
I asked Vernon a few questions so we could get to know him better:
1.Where are you from? Raised?
I am from Richmond, capital of Virginia, but still a very small minded area if you ask me. I was raised in literally everyplace..suburbs until I was 8. city until 12 and the country until I was 19 and decided it was time to finally grow up and move out on my own. Landing right in the middle of all three areas :)
2.When did you start lifting weights/ body building?
I was actually bullied all throughout school for various reasons from being poor and not being able to afford the newest trends, to being heavier than the other kids. At the age of 16 I tried football out and was humiliated on and off the field, being laughed at in the gym and on the football field. Never again I said, and from 17 on I hit the weights hard ( but always staying clean and natural).

3.When was you first modeling shoot? And with what photographer?My first shoot was about 2 years ago with a local photographer (Marcus Hyde), but my first real shoot I ever had was with Rick Day, one of the best Photographers in NYC. Great guy, I might add.
4.What is your age/height/weight/etc…
I am 29 years old , Iweigh 225lbs and stand 6'4.
I stay in shape pretty much every day of my life, but when an important shoot is coming up I tend to really lean down in preparation to look my best.
5. What do you do for fun?
Fun? whats that?? lol I am a huge electronics and video game freak ( I'm a geek I admit it) I love to go out and have a good time but building a new computer or knocking down a few zombies on pc or another game system is A ok with me as well. and everyone likes a good drink every now and again. And I am a hardcore Dallas fan ( please keep ur comments and opinions to yourself lol), so I like to watch the games with friends. My number one thing i love to do is laugh and make people laugh. I'm always called the whitest black guy, but I can make anyone laugh. I love it
6.What is your favorite meal? (spaghetti, tacos, lasagna)
Ok, I have this weird obsession with potatoes. I don't know what it is about them, but love them, mashed, baked french fries..mmm.When I'm dieting hardcore and don't do carbs they are my number one craving all day long. Second place would have to be hot wings with ranch yummies
7. Are you married/single/gf?
My marital status is single..my girlfriend and I broke up about 2 months ago..o well :(
8.What is your 10 yr plan? Where do you see yourself in the future?
In 10yrs..lol 3 years ago I never would have thought I'd be modeling..life is crazy isn't it. But seriously, I really do have aspirations for TV or movies. I recently did a commercial with Under Armour and got bit by the entertainment industry bug. I plan on taking acting classes in the very near future to fulfill those needs.
