We talk travel, stars and space with Nevs newest face - the gorgeous Maxwell Watts !
Hometown: Bridgnorth, Shropshire
How were you discovered?
I kind of just sent some snaps off to a model agency a few years back, and they signed me ;)
What were you doing before you were a model?
I was in Aerospace engineering, working for a French engineering company who are first tier suppliers to Rolls Royce
How is 2016 shaping up for you so far?
Amazing so far….I moved down to London at the start of the summer so still feels like I’m on holiday down here! I spent most of 2015 renovating my house in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, stripping wallpaper and knocking down walls, so 2016 feels like a breeze compared to that! Recently returned from an amazing trip to Portugal and have a few trips planned for late summer, including New York, so it’s shaping up quite nicely
How excited are you to be a part of the Nevs Fam?
Very excited! From when I signed it felt like a very close knit team and welcomed me from the start. I’m looking forward to seeing what the rest of the summer has to offer
What makes you tick?
I love to travel and explore new places, next year I hope to spend some time in Central and South America and maybe even stop off at my uncle’s ranch in Venezuela. Music is also a massive part of my life, I like the variety that house has to offer as there’s always a tune to reflect a certain mood or experience you’ve had. Training is also a huge part of my life; a kind of stress reliever. I like staying in shape, boxing taught me the disciplines of fitness and also how to look after myself. Another one of my interests is space, I’m fascinated by the stars and the vast space out there! I think mainly as we know so little about it - get me on that rocket ship!

Backpack, Bottle of water Nevs book, Some sort of food, normally nuts or fruit if I fancy a munch on route, Umbrella, Phone charger, - Without these vital essentials you will fail!
