C'mon....you know you did.
Well get ready to drool again girl cuz Terry is coming to SoFlo. The mucho macho male model will make a personal appearance at Macy's in Dadeland Mall Friday, April 12 starting at 6 p.m.
He's in town introducing Calvin Klein's new cologne Dark Obsession For Men.
Here's a little more about the ab-fab dapper dude in a email Q&A:
ROD - Obsession as a brand is more from my generation (ahem…be kind), so do you have any personal memories with the product?
MATTHEW - "Obsession was the first fragrance that I received as a gift. It was from my mom, so I started wearing Calvin Klein fragrances at an early age."
ROD - If you were describing the scent Dark Obsession For Men to a friend, what would you say?
MATTHEW - "I describe the scent as relaxing, mellow and inviting. It's also very sexy."
ROD - Do you think the Calvin Klein commercial shown during the Super Bowl broadcast signaled some sort of cultural shift? And if so, what do you think that shift was?
MATTHEW - "For sure, it was a sign that it's time to get back into the gym...just kidding. I think the commercial was extremely sexy and a bit risqué. I believe it signaled the idea that men can be sexy too.
ROD - We all heard and read the reaction to the Super Bowl commercial in the wrap-ups Monday morning, but I was wondering what the reaction was like for you personally? How did your family and friends react? Any interesting anecdotes following the broadcast?
MATTHEW - "My jaw dropped when it aired. I was absolutely speechless. My family was super excited! My mom screamed when it aired. I was up all night and my friends kept calling and texting me about it. It was pretty surreal."
ROD - How do you stay in shape? What is your workout routine (I hear it’s all about planks)?
MATTHEW - "When preparing for a job, I do about an hour and a half of full-body circuit training. I don't use any heavy weights, just medium to light weights in high repetition. I also do a combination of planks and core workouts, which go hand-in-hand."
ROD - What is your diet like? Is it the same all the time or does it change before a big photo/video shoot?
MATTHEW - "I try to keep my diet consistent, whether I am working or not. I like to feel fit and stay healthy. If I have a big job coming up, I cut out all sweets and snacks. I keep it to three meals per day. I eat lots of fish, because it's a great lean protein and drink tons of water. I cut out all protein supplements and stick with the pure proteins."
ROD - I hear that your mother sent in your photograph for a modeling contest – is that true? How did your modeling career proceed after that?
MATTHEW - "Yes, my mom got involved. We had discussed entering the VMAN/Ford Model Search and so I was planning on it, and then, without my knowledge, my mom jumped the gun and submitted my pictures. After that, Ford contacted me and the rest is history.
ROD - What was your job before modeling?
MATTHEW "I did many odd jobs, including construction work and a stint in the dairy section at the local grocery store."
ROD - Was there a learning curve for how to model? Who taught you how to find your best lighting and learn your angles?
MATTHEW - "Yes, my first shoot was a real learning experience. I figured out a lot about the lighting and angles that work best for me, and about facial expressions – what looks and feels natural. My agency, Ford Models, also helped and my agent gave me advice and pointers on what to work on."
ROD - Have you been to South Florida before? If so, what were your favorite places to go. If not, what is on your to-do list while here?
MATTHEW - "Yes, I was recently in South Beach. I was on my own, which was a really cool experience. I don’t have any specific favorite places – it was the general atmosphere and environment that I really enjoyed."
ROD - You’re from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, right? Where is home now?
MATTHEW - "I split my time between Southern New Jersey and New York City."
ROD - Are you single? If so, what do you look for in a girlfriend?
MATTHEW - "I am taken. But when I was on the market, I was looking for someone who was very down-to-earth with a great personality, but also someone genuine, who had my best interests at heart. Someone sweet, loving, caring and trusting, but also a little goofy -- like me."
