World Class Kings Magazine: Please tell us about yourself.
I'm a driven, self-motivated individual who strives to do the best I can at everything in life but have also learned to be more relaxed and just enjoy what I'm doing regardless of the outcome. My motto is "You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great." Meaning, you don't have to be perfect to start doing what you love or something you're interested in, and that it takes practice and most importantly, taking that first step and actually STARTING, or you won't get anywhere.
I quit my job back in the United States of America almost 3 years ago and set out to travel the world. I have since visited 35 countries while building a successful online marketing business where I work remotely and help manage multiple clients' marketing needs in America and abroad. I'm also a part-time English teacher online working with kids in China, and I'm also a Model. One of the most important parts of my life is fitness, It helps me stay in top form both physically and mentally, and this helps a lot with stress and emotional stability in life. In the most recent book I read about Steve Jobs, he quoted an old Hindu saying, "In the first 30 years of your life, you make your habits. In the last 30 years of your life, your habits make you."
World Class Kings Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your title?
I chose to compete in this pageant because I have always been interested in experiencing new opportunities in life and not limiting myself out of fear of failure or ridicule. Since I know how strongly these things can impact others, I want to try and live as an example for them to never give up on their own hopes and dreams and see that if I can do it then maybe they can too. Building myself up into the positions and success I can now be proud of also made me feel like I was a prime candidate and example of a Mister Working Man International.
World Class Kings Magazine: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about?
The Mister Working Man International pageant is a competition for men to show off not only their talents and careers as international working men but also their unique talents and contributions to society. This was the first year for this competition and there were originally 20 countries and contested slated to compete, but only 16 candidates ended up making it. This pageant was also created by Dr Siam to bring people from all over the world and share in the amazing culture and people that Thailand has to offer. By bringing in more national contestants, it will help show the world more of the intimate details about the kindness and pride the Thai people have for their land and their Kingdom.
World Class Kings Magazine: What are you being judged on during the competition?
During the competition, we had to do different activities with the teams we were assigned along with other contestants. This started with some fun scavenger hunts and then incorporated more practical examples of our talents, physique, and answering questions during interviews and impromptu speeches to the audience.
World Class Kings Magazine: Which part of the competition was most fun for you?
There wasn't a particular part of the competition I enjoyed more than the great friends I made with the other contestants from different parts of the world as well as with the Mister Working Man International Team. If there was one part I enjoyed the most it would probably be the swimwear catwalk where I was able to dance and enjoy myself on stage which was a lot of fun for me.
World Class Kings Magazine: Which part of the competition was most challenging for you?
The most challenging part of the competition for me was the talent contest, especially when there were so many talented singers among us or people who did amazing things like Mr Borneo who did an incredible fire show or Mr Brazil who did an entertaining dancing performance. Another challenging part of the competition was the National Costume contest, where there were so many incredible examples from contestants like Mr Malaysia, Mr Malta, Mr Handred Islands, Mr Phiillipines, and Mr Cambodia.
World Class Kings Magazine: What inspired you to do your first pageant?
Like I said above, I've never really been afraid of trying new things, even having to face the possibility of failure or even humiliation. I don't want to look back on my life with regret of not at least trying, or declining something and regretting it. I know for sure I would have regretted not competing for this regardless if the result was different.
World Class Kings Magazine: What are some of you achievements?
I would consider my achievements as a culmination of my current lifestyle and success. After putting in work over the last 3 years living and traveling abroad on my own I've successfully built up my own marketing clients, became an English teacher where I can give back to society and help the youth, and also becoming a model have all been dreams of mine I've been fortunate enough to make happen through sheer determination and persistence.
World Class Kings Magazine: Tell us about your platform or what charity you volunteer for?
Charities I have been involved in would include donating my time to help and promote animal shelters like Soi Dog in Phuket, Thailand when I lived there. I am also very concerned with and vocal about our need to reduce plastic waste, promote water conservation, as well as reforestation efforts internationally.
World Class Kings Magazine: Tell us about your evening wear?
My evening wear for the competition consisted of Swimwear, Businesswear, and then formal Black Suit and tie.
World Class Kings Magazine: What makes you stand out from all those other guys?
I don't think I particularly stood out from the other guys as everyone had their own unique personalities and contributions and I felt very fortunate to have experienced this and made friends with all of them.
World Class Kings Magazine: How did it feel to hear your name as the winner?
It felt absolutely amazing to hear my name, after other people were being called before me I began to wonder what was going to happen, and I'll never forget the sense of pride I felt hearing so many people in the audience yelling "USA" "Mister USA!", and later on in the videos I watched. Such a humbling and unforgettable lifechanging experience.
World Class Kings Magazine: What does the stole (sash) symbolizes to you?
The sash symbolizes my representation for my home country the United States of America. I did my best to be a good representation to anyone who either didn't have experience with Americans, or maybe has a negative one. I hope that I can help change that or that I was able to be a positive example of someone from my country.
World Class Kings Magazine: What does it mean to you to be a King?
I think being a King doesn't necessarily mean you rule over others or should consider yourself better than someone else, to choose patience, kindness, and acceptance over imposing your power and will on others. I believe a true King is someone who uses their abilities or status to improve the welfare of others and live as a good example of what others should strive for within themselves.
World Class Kings Magazine: Any Modeling, Film, acting or music experience you would like to share?
Yes, I have been modeling doing a variety of work, and I really enjoy it.
World Class Kings Magazine: What are your plans for 2020 as a King?
To continue being the best example I can be for others and to make my Mom and family proud.
World Class Kings Magazine: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?
If there was one thing I would like to have some influence on as part of my legacy, it would be to help reduce plastic pollution and promote international reforestation efforts. World Class Kings Magazine would like to say thank you for this amazing interview.
