“GIVE ME A PLACE TO STAND AND I WILL MOVE THE EARTH!”
I love that quote and feel that I’ve got both feet planted and it’s time to start moving.
Christian’s heritage is a mix between Russian/Italian. He was born in Denver, Colorado and grew up in the Midwest. He now calls Dallas, Texas home but travels often.
In high school Christian played baseball, basketball, ran track and did travel soccer. Christians’ first intro into modeling was while I was in Michigan at the age of 17. After graduating high school he was recruited by several small agencies in the Midwest. Christian started off working bridal and sporting goods runway shows and some print work.
He gladly accepted the challenge and shortly after was approached by local agencies and photographers and has been shooting nonstop since. Christian is signed with several agencies in Texas, Georgia and California. His areas of specialty modeling include swim wear, romance novels, fashion and commercial print. Christian has also had several acting roles appearing in television commercials and shows.
Christian most recently has begun instructing new aspiring modeling/acting talent with Bella Modeling School in Dallas Texas. He is the founder and CEO of Argos Fine Fragrances a fragrance company with two mens fragrances and one womens perfume.
Christian always considered modeling a side or part time gig while his main focus was college. Christian graduated with both bachelors and masters degrees in occupational therapy and is still a licensed therapist. Christian has worked in acute care, burn unit, cardiac rehab, inpatient/outpatient, skilled nursing facilities and in home care.
After college Christian started several companies in Michigan and purchased his first home there as well. Christian, however, heard the big city calling and left Michigan for more opportunities. He is a very creative person and has always been into health & fitness. Upon arriving in Texas Christian began purchasing rental property in and around Dallas and still treated home care patients. Hitting the gym had always been a great stress reliever and was a fun hobby. Christian trained a few fitness competitors and was convinced that he should also enter as a men’s physique competitor.
Christians latest ventures into the Forex and Gold trade markets as well as being selected as the official brand ambassador for www.GentlemansCloset.net and mens online lifestyle magazine and store. Christian is also working on a book right now based off of one of the characters he shot for during one of his photo shoots.
Christian has sold off most of his single family rental property in Dallas and in Michigan and manages his remaining four-plex rentals in Dallas. Christian often travels for business and for modeling work.

Q & A
Can you tell us something about yourself that the average person wouldn’t know?
I have always been a very outgoing and fun loving person. I have a photographic memory, which served me well during college. I can still remember faces and places of people and places from when I was a baby.
How did you get into modeling?
I was approached at the mall when I was 17. I started out doing a couple small bridal and sporting goods runway shows then went on to commercial print.
What is your favorite food?
Hmmm…Red velvet cheese cake!! But only on special occasions. I really try to eat a balanced diet and every 2-3 hours throughout the day. I have a fast metabolism and that curbs my appetite and helps maintain muscle mass.
What are your hobbies?
They change all the time. I think that work has been taking up most of my time but I love getting into the gym, watching sports and traveling.
What is your favorite place to travel to?
I’d have to say Rio!!! Brazil has been the best time for me. I’ve always gone around carnival but would some time like to go back when it’s not so packed to just relax and maybe next time hang-glide from the mountains down to the ocean.
What projects are you working on now?
