Damaged / Goods: What led you to originally pursue a career in modeling?

Alejandro Brown:My aunt actually suggested submitting an application to Ford. The idea of a modeling career never really crossed my mind before that. We submitted online and I didn't figure much would happen, but I ended up getting a call the next morning from Ford. So then I went to the New York office, landed a contract and I've been having a good time ever since.

Damaged: Who would you say is your ultimate fashion inspiration?

Alejandro: Who would you say is your ultimate fashion inspiration ? I'd have to say Slash , he's so damn cool. I really dig the rock n roll vibes.

Damaged: Favorite fashion brands?

Alejandro: I'm pretty much always rocking Converse. I don't really zone in on specific brands too much, usually I just shop at thrift stores and buy what looks cool. I'm into cool prints, graphic t-shirts and that kinda stuff.

Damaged: In terms of music, who are your top artists of the moment?

Alejandro:My top artists at the moment would be Death Grips, Tenacious D, Flight of the Conchords, Gorillaz, and Nujabes.

Whats your damage? 

Alejandro: I can't really think of a big specific moment of change in my life. I've been able to lead a very chilled and laid back lifestyle and I believe that has made me a pretty calm and collected person. Travel for sure has helped me mature and grow as a human being. Experiencing California and the West coast for the first time has been incredibly rad.
