Meet the Model: Russell Short
Russell doesn't exactly live up to his name; At 5 foot 11, Russell is not short. As one of our newer commercial Male & Fitness models, he is always working (or working out). We asked him 10 questions
Tell us a bit about yourself?
I am fairly new to the industry having only been a model for 8 months but I am loving every minute. I also co-own a couple of businesses alongside modelling, one being a football coaching company and the other a luxury travel & concierge company focusing on Miami (www.miami-x.com)
Who (or what) inspired you to become a model?
I had never really thought about modelling until one of my good friends, who is also in the industry persuaded me to send some pictures off and I haven’t looked back since.
What do you do in your spare time?
My spare time is normally spent working, but I love it really. Aside from this you will normally find me in the gym! I am partial to a dance floor on a Saturday night too...
How would your best friend describe you?
My best friend would begrudgingly tell you I like to make people laugh… In three words I guess he would say ‘hard-working’ ‘driven’ and ‘positive'
What would your superpower be?
Being able to be invisible would be quite cool but I think I’d have to say being able to stop time as it’s without doubt the most precious thing.
Who are your favourite models?
Probably not classed as a ‘model’ but David Beckham is the man.
What are the last three things you bought?
Train ticket to London, flat white (extra hot for the journey) and had a bit of a spree in Nike Town after a casting.
Who’s your favourite Disney princess?
Pocahontas after I went a bit weak at the knees after meeting her in Florida a few years ago!
If you inherited an acre of land, what would you do with it?
Build the most incredible house so I can hold the best parties without annoying any neighbours.
What are your top 3 life goals?
Living somewhere where I wake up next to a beach every morning, to have a happy, healthy family and I wouldn’t mind still having a six pack at sixty!
