How were you discovered?
I was helping with a small tour, we stayed a few extra days to party in LA. A photographer convinced me to shoot; with the promise of a burrito when we were finished…
So how does it feel to be a part of the Nevs family now?
It's great! It really does feel like a family
How are you enjoying London so far?
I've been here for a week and came here not really knowing anyone, so still building a group of friends. The city itself is beautiful, with a special sort of energy around it. Though it's always shocking how spread out everything is
What makes Griffin tick?
I write a lot of poetry - though it's not very good, I skateboard quite a bit (getting the weirdest looks whilst doing so through London) but music is my greatest love - constantly playing as long as I'm awake

My dog Mikey, he is a Wolf-German Shepherd Hybrid
Vivienne Westwood and Valentino
Couldn’t live without?
Currently on your playlist?
Free Throw, Title Fight, Foxing, Old Gray
What makes you smile?
The little things in life, reminding myself of where I have come from, being grateful for the food in my stomach, roof over my head, and the friends, family and co-workers (agencies, clients) that care for me

Pack of Marlboro Red cigarettes
Fave movie of all time?
Star Wars Original Trilogy

Obsessed with right now?

Whats your secret to a happy life?

What do you think is the key to a good work / life balance?
Fully enjoying what you do, as well as being up for anything!
What does the rest of 2016 hold for you - anything exciting in the pipeline?
What's exciting is that I don't know! A week ago I was in another country, a year ago I was living across the world
Love you guys! (We love you too Griffin - even more than we thought!)
