Hometown: North End Wilkes Barre, PA
Current City: Manhattan
Nickname: Most of my friends and family call me Wally. I get the occasional Savage from time to time, but my favorite nickname is Walt; my Pop Pop used to call me that.
How did you spend the money you made? I used half of it to put a down payment on an apartment, and the rest I gave to my mother. (Ed. Note: Awwwwwww…)
Where are we least likely to find you? McDonald’s
What’s your guilty pleasure? Are we talking about food? Definitely almond butter!
What time do you wake up every day? What time do you typically go to bed? My internal clock is 9 a.m. and 2 a.m. I try to get to sleep by midnight, but I’m a night owl.
What scares you? Deep, dark water. I hate that feeling you get when you don’t know what’s underneath you!
What was your best and worst subject in school? Math and economics.
What kind of student were you in high school? I was a great student! I was loud and energetic, but I still got my work done. I loved studying and I’d always stay to 8th period to practice my math homework over with Ms. Macri, or to just get my work done in general. If I wasn’t studying, I was playing volleyball. I played football, too, but I loved volleyball and my team. Some of my favorite memories of my high school years was the time I spent with my volleyball team. I owe a lot to my coach, Mr. Lapinski, for developing my character on and off the court.
When are you in the best mood? When I make someone happy.
When are you in the worst mood? When I’m hungry or as we call it “hangry.”
Who do you admire most in the world? My grandfather
Any secret talents? I can cut hair. My pop taught me at the age of 12.
Where do you travel to most? To my fridge. Kidding! When I have free time, I try to go home to see the family.
What word do you say too much? YES
What’s your favorite thing about being in fashion? The experience. I like the challenge of the fashion world. If it were so easy, every great-looking guy and girl would be supermodels! The art of becoming this ideal image is the beauty of it all. As my agent Jason Kanner says, it’s the return of the male supermodel.
Who’s your favorite female model? Treveen Stewart.
What advice would you give your 13 year old self? Keep being you, kid.
How would you describe your current state of mind? Intuitively Savage.
