Excerpts from his ABC questionnaire (click to enlarge!):
Here is an interview Drew gave back in January to AZcentral.com:
How were you discovered? I was bartending at the W Hotel back in December of 2008 when I was approached by the Ford Robert Black Agency. I hadn’t really ever considered modeling before but when they asked me to come in for an interview, I had to take them seriously. I sat down with Sheree, the owner of the agency, took a few pictures, and signed that day.
What was your favorite job thus far? Every opportunity I’ve had to work has been an absolute blessing! All of the people I’ve worked with over the years have been so amazing it wouldn’t be fair to single any particular job out as my favorite. The most memorable time I’ve spent modeling though, would have to be the 7 months I spent working in Milan. I cherished every second of my experience there.
Favorite designer: I’ve always loved the All-American look of Ralph Lauren.
Most embarrassing model moment: Thankfully, I don’t feel like I’ve had a truly embarrassing moment yet. I did meet Domenico Dolce at a casting during Milano fashion week and had to be told later on who he was, not one of my finer model moments.
Best beauty secret: The best advice I can offer is to maintain a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and smile often.
What’s your trademark: I like to bring a positive attitude and joyful disposition to every job. Staying open-minded and flexible has been the best way I know how to get the best out of myself and those I work with.
Last song you listened to on your iPod: The Rolling Stones – Beast of Burden.
Style icon: James Dean’s style is timeless.
What’s your dream modeling job? Landing a Ralph Lauren Polo campaign would be a dream come true.
What new addition to your wardrobe do you want this season? I can always use a new pair of shoes. I’ve got my eyes on a couple Johnston & Murphy’s that I hope Santa brings me this Christmas.
How do you stay in shape? Any tricks to the trade? I’ve been exercising 6 days a week since entering my 20’s, but I notice my best result when I’m following a strict clean diet. I try my best to stay away from the sweets, but I’ve been known to give the cookie monster a run for his money.
