What were you doing before modeling?

Before modeling, I was a high school student with a part-time messenger service job.

What was your first major gig?

My first major gig was the Marc By Marc Jacobs Show for New York Fashion Week. It was an enjoyable experience…I was happy with my choice to become a model. I had a conversation with my parents and decided to model full-time.

Boxers or briefs?

I prefer boxer briefs. They aren’t too tight but not too loose either.

What do you like to do on your downtime?

On my downtime, I like to play basketball and skate. I love being outside and keeping myself busy.

  1. I want to send him a package of three new atheletic undershirts. (And no, they are NOT “tank tops.” Tank tops were the dark khaki woolen shirts worn by tank commandos during WW2. They had wide straps. What Jeremy is wearing is an athletic undershirt.) He’s managed to tear the stitching in front around the neck and I would gladly buy him some new Calvin Klein a-shirts if someone will only supply me with an address. Of course, I might have other motives as well, such as stalking.

  2. why dont you be nice instead of sounding like an asshole hes a very handsome guy. I DONT think you could even afford a shirt like that rip or not mr. jamesmmartin
