Many of you might have recognized’s today’s interview from his award winning smile or killer body. Some of you might even have met him. I can say that I first met Quinn Jaxon when he helped the company I work for out with an event. Since then, each and every time I’ve gotten the chance to see Quinn, I’ve come to realize how truly great of a person he is. His kindness, sense of self-aware, and drive to fulfill all of his passions is something we should all be so lucky to all have.

SS: Quinn, I need to ask you first, just who the hell are you?
QJ: Well, my Name is Quinn Jaxon, I’m a small town boy from North Dakota. I originally moved to LA to chance a professional dancer

SS: What made you choose LA over a city for dancing like NYC?
QJ: Ha ha easy choice! I hate winter. Growing up in North Dakota, it’s freezing there I wanted to get away from all that cold shit!

SS: Amen! Besides why hide under all those layers?
QJ: Exactly! I work hard for what I got, I like showing it off.

SS: You certainly melted a lot of hearts when people had their first bit of exposure to you in the first Andrew Christian video. How did that come to be?
QJ: Well, actually the video creators of AC, found me Gogo dancing at Here Lounge one night. I just followed up by emailing them. It was quite simple and just a case of being at the right place at the right time

SS:It sure was! I recall shortly after I saw your pretty mug everywhere! How did life change for you after that first video?
QJ: The first “car wash” video got over a million views. So plenty of people saw it. That being said it became just basic networking. So my schedule got full as my name got bigger

SS: What has been your favorite opportunity you’ve received as a result of that first video?
QJ: I’d have to say the traveling. As my name got my notice I started getting hired all across the world to different clubs to promote and advertise. I was just in Beijing this year

SS: Oh wow! That’s amazing! Obvious difference aside, What was the biggest difference between Chinese gays and WeHo gays?
QJ: Chinese gays have no self control, we had to escorted on and off stage by security because how much they try to grab you. It’s like a big mosh pit!

SS: What is your favorite thing about modeling and what is your favorite thing about being a host?
QJ: Modeling my favorite thing is just meeting new people and experiencing up close and personal someone personal intake on there craft. Hosting, it was fun being around my friends and being able to actually talk, instead if dancing on a box

SS: Seems like you really get a great duality of your worlds there.
