Tyler Riggs

Agency: Red Model Management, Age: 21, Height: 6'1.5"- 186cm, Place of Origin: Tampa, Florida.

How were you discovered:
A friend of mine in Tampa is a fashion major and needed me to shoot for a school project. When the whole thing was done she convinced me to use a few images on a website. I was immediately contacted. I spoke with George at Red on the phone, but decided to take a trip to NY to meet with all the agencies. I met with George at Red after seeing just two other agencies in NY. I had several other appointments for that day, but George refused to let me walk out without signing with Red Models.
Some of your favorite things: I love seeing my friends. Also, my booker George Brown is one of the hardest workers I have ever met and he tends to be one of my favorite people because of that. I hope that counts in the favorite things section.

What is your Favorite music, band:
This is a difficult question to answer. I love "The Bronx," "Every Time I Die," "Comback Kid," "Norma Jean," "Spitfire" and my old roomate's band from back home, "Underoath."
What are your Hobbies:
Riding bikes, watching movies, playing music, reading books. Favorite foods: I could eat at Chipotle every day of my life.
Why the tattoo of Dali’s painting?
There is a gigantic Dali museum near Tampa I have been in love with Dali ever since I first went there. Besides you can never go wrong with a colorful piece of surreal art.
Are tattoos something that is considered a problem or an advantage in the industry?
To be honest I am not sure. It seems that it is some sort of fad right now, so I guess it is an advantage. But, to be honest, some of these guys have the worst fucking tattoo's I have ever seen.
