KS: Describe your personal style…

TS: My personal style is a combination of dapper meets street.

KS: Countess Mara’s motto is “Be A Gentleman” – what exactly does that mean to you?

TS: A gentlemen holds himself to a higher standard than most. He exhibits characteristics that not only women, but everyone admires. A gentleman is charming, honest, stylish, and most importantly courteous.

KS: What’s something every man should have in his wardrobe?

TS: A respectable timepiece that commands attention, but doesn’t scream for it.

KS: What’s your wardrobe’s prize possession?

TS: Ahhh, this is a hard one. I have to go with the leather totes I recently purchased during my trip to Cairo, Egypt. The quality is impeccable.

KS: What’s something every man should know how to do?

TS: Change a tire.

I think Tajji definitely knows what time it is
KS: Why is the bow tie such a timeless accessory?
TS: It’s classic, and speaks volumes. It separates the men from the boys.
KS: What do you like about the style of the bow tie you’re wearing?
TS: I’m a fan of color. A lot of men stray from color, or are scared of it. I embrace it. It’s a classic plaid, orange with a pop of blue and yellow accents.

KS: What was the inspiration for becoming a model?

TS: Thanks to my mom, I’ve always had an affinity for fashion. It seemed like a natural progression. I’m grateful for supportive family and friends who encouraged me to pursue my aspirations.

KS: Most exciting shoot?

TS: Participating as a model in 2012′s ICON Motorsports catalog shoot.


KS: What was your inspiration for becoming a photographer?

TS: I once read, ‘a model with experience behind the camera tends to be more effective in front of it.’ That statement really resonated with me, so I ran with it.

KS: What do you love most about photography?

TS: Photography is art. I love to create. I like that I can capture people in their natural element, architecture, moments with no notice, yet I also like to execute well-planned shoots, as well. They’re all different “highs.”

KS: Favorite location to shoot?

TS: Paris. The architecture there is incredible.

KS: Favorite way to relax?

TS: Coffee shop and a good book. I don’t need much.

KS: What can we expect in the near future?
TS: I currently have a book in the works that I’m really excited about. I’ve also been invited to participate in a themed art/photography exhibit March 2014.
