EnjoyShanghai speaks to South African male model, Jay D'Engle about how he got into modelling and his life in the outside world.

What are your passions in life?

I have been vegan my whole and do not drink or smoke, you might say I'm a health fanatic. My passion is helping people get fit and healthy, so they can have a good long life!

When did you get into modelling?

I am an international model and have been traveling for the last four years all around the world. I've been regularly flying in and out of Shanghai in the last few years, doing some really exciting work on both film, TV and photo. The modelling industry in China is an interesting one. I usually book all of my work through well-established agents, and everything goes well for me. But I know many models who aren't so lucky and need to take a lot more time to learn the ropes.

What else do you do aside modelling?

I am a professional dancer too, and I love to dance. I usually don't have time for dancing, especially recently. Modelling work takes up full days, and I travel to several different countries for different jobs.

When you do get spare time, what are your hobbies?

I used to be a professional sailor and every spare weekend I have I go racing around South Africa. I've won some competitions in sailing and they were some of the best days of my life. There's nothing better than being at one with nature and harnessing the power of the ocean.

I like to have fun and I always joke around. I believe life is for the living, so we should live everyday as if it is our last, in joy and positivity.
