Interview with Craig Moody


I recently interviewed the delightful Craig Moody for Dylan Rosser's tMf magazine.  Below you will find some highlights from our chat as well as some safe for work photographs from the story that were shot by David Vance.  For the rest of my interview with Craig along with some very not safe for work photos please visit tmfmagazine.com.

Hello Craig. Would you like to introduce yourself? 
My name is Craig Moody. I am 30 years old, born and raised in sunny (and incredibly humid) South Florida. I am an actor, writer and model, and like so many of us, I am working diligently and consistently to fulfil my life’s call and purpose.

Talk me through an average day in the life of you? 
An average day would include waking up to annoy and irritate my inner-peace and patience by fighting (and mostly sitting still in) the infamous Miami morning traffic rush. After nearly losing my sanity behind the wheel, I arrive at my day job as an office manager for a construction company. I have been with this company for eight happy years now. It’s a very good job that I do enjoy as I otherwise focus on and follow my dreams. After work it is off to the gym, which I refer to as “my sanctuary”, where I lift weights for two hours a night, five nights a week. After that, it’s home to relax, unwind and reset for the next day when I get to do it all over again.

You recently shot with David Vance for the new issue of tMf. What was the experience like? 
Working with the legendary David Vance is by far the most creatively and personally fulfilling experience I have had yet as a model. Mr. Vance is not only world-renowned for his timeless, classic, and beautiful photography work, but he is also a tremendous artistic spirit with a heart of solid platinum. We have worked together twice, each project more exciting than the last, together creating what I believe to be my very best modelling work to date. David has certainly become someone in my life that I can honestly consider a worthy confidant, experienced adviser, and most importantly, a tried and true friend.

What is your favourite part of your body and why? 
My big, long… face. Truly, this face with these big pouty lips, sky-high cheekbones, and squinty small eyes could either be a recipe for some freakish disaster or something pleasant, unique and hopefully beautiful. I would like to think that it leans more towards the latter description, though that is not for me to decide. Hopefully anything “freakish” about me resides in other areas of my life and not on my face.

How hard do you work on your body? 
I do everything hard. Wait, let me rephrase that…I do everything the hard way. ;-) Seriously though, I live a lifestyle that is dedicated to my body. All that I do revolves around these three essential factors: diet, training and rest. It requires much discipline, dedication, sacrifice and devotion, but I love it and I couldn’t imagine nor would I have it any other way. Like anything worth having in life, if you really want something, you have to be willing to work hard and sacrifice for it no matter the circumstances. Resilience, steadfastness, and consistency are the not-so-secret secrets to all success in life. Dreams plus passion plus drive plus determination plus discipline equals dreams coming true.

Do you prefer to sleep on the left or the right side of the bed? 
I’m single so I proudly sleep slap dab in the centre of my comfy bed.

How do you like your eggs in the morning? 
I eat enough eggs to kill a person. On a daily basis I consume tons of egg whites, tossed in a bowl and microwaved. Fancy, I know, but it’s easy and effective and that’s all that matters to me. 

What is your biggest turn on? 
A sense of humour. There is nothing sexier than someone who has the personality, intelligence and ability to laugh at both life and themselves. Life is an adventurous journey, one must relax, trust and enjoy it. 

Which part of your body gets the most compliments? 
My big fat lips, without a doubt. These lips are great for two things: whistling to my bird and kissing my mother’s cheek. Get your minds out of the filth gutter!

A guilty pleasure you can’t seem to quit? 
Coffee. It’s not so much a guilty pleasure as it is an essential liquid for life! I drink it dark roast and black, no cream, no sugar. I try and keep my intake fairly limited, but I could easily suck down gallons of it if left to any uncontrolled, guilty desires.  

Thanks Craig!
