Who Am I ?


January 2012

1: Who am I?

My name is Michael Freeby! I’m a model and photographer.

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I model for various designers and the like–different editorials and lookbooks, mostly. My photography is generally over-the-top celebrity fashion editorials. I’m currently working on holiday cards for various celebrities; I just finished a family’s Christmas cards, and am now working on various Valentine’s Day cards. I’ve always loved the holidays, but now I’m really loving the holidays!

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

I’m from San Diego! But in five minutes, I’ll be going to Millions of Milkshakes in West Hollywood for the La Toya Jackson milkshake.

4: Who is your biggest hero?

Zsa Zsa Gabor. I want to be like Zsa Zsa when I grow up. Minus the falling, breaking a hip, and getting a leg amputated. I could do without those parts.

5: What book is your bible?

How To Catch a Man, How To Keep a Man, How To Get Rid of a Man by Zsa Zsa Gabor.

6: What are some things you love?  And some things you hate?

I love anyone who wears Stevie Boi. He is the greatest designer of our generation and an inspiration to us all. And not just because I’m the current face of his campaign and am opening his New York Fashion Week show, but because it’s true.

7: What is your raison d’être?

Milkshakes! Definitely milkshakes!

8: What is your favorite color?

Neon and cheetah print. Sometimes, both at the same time.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

Storm. For the past four years my look was modeled after Storm, the sexy leader of the X-Men. I recently decided to rebel and change my look. Now I’m 80′s mohawk-era Storm.

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

Forbidden Planet comics in Union Square and the Barbie room at the Toys R Us in Times Square. Yes, for me, these qualify as hot spots.

11: What turns you on?

Joyrich’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection. Anything involving Richie Rich or Traver Rains. The thought of a Heatherette reunion turns me on.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

How fierce is Jessica Sutta’s new single?

Michael Freeby is a model and photographer. As a model, he has been featured regularly by magazines such as Nylon, Bullett, WWD, and Vogue.
