I met fitness/ commercial model Darius Williams in the summer of 2011. He had just moved to NYC from Louisiana and reached out to me hoping we could work together. The minute i met him I saw something in him and was interested in working with him.
In the beginning it was tough. Darius isn't the typical skinny fashion model type...he's got a lotta junk in the trunk. A lot of people in this industry wasn't really interested in working with a black guy, especially one his size. I didnt care, I was up for the challenge of creating work that show he was marketable and could sell products..... I believed in him.
Currently Darius is transitioning into a career in fitness and lifestyle training. He is merging his passion for fitness and southern charm into a career that is fulfilling for him. He enjoys helping other people reach their goals for a better body and a healthier lifestyle.
I am so happy for all of Darius success in modeling and I wish him continued success in his new endeavors in fitness. You can follow Darius on instagram at @darius_williams11
