Meet David Delaney: StarCentral Magazine’s Reigning Ultimate Male Model

b

David Delaney’s passion for fitness and crossfit inevitably resulted in a body worthy of any male model in the modeling world, which is why David’s family friends encouraged him to enter the industry. The next thing he knew, he was being crowned as FLAIR 2015’s Male Model Winner! “I like the fact that modelling is out of my comfort zone but allows me to focus not just on the job ahead, but disciplines me in everyday living with just always taking care of myself physically and mentally.”

The engaged Filipino/Australian father-of-two (David is engaged to Jersay, a popular singer in Sydney’s Filipino community) has high hopes of being able to combine modeling with his love for fitness. He would love to be a model for crossfit or to be a model for a sportswear label. He also hopes to soon qualify as a crossfit coach as “it’s a passionate hobby/commitment I’ve had for a while.” Outside of the modeling world, David works as a business development manager for Moofish, a meat and seafood wholesale company (where he was also recently promoted!) with over 20 years experience in the hospitality industry. His duties include being responsible for accounts with some of the airline industry’s most prestigious names such as QANTAS 1st Class, Etihad Airways and Emirates. “24hr responsibility and on call 7 days…I’m pretty routine, day-to-day and with 2 kids, life’s flat out but I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

“The one thing I would like people to know is that I worked hard for what I have and very humble for my achievements but proud of my family and heritage.” He hopes to “someday achieve success in a way that they are proud of me.” It is a grounded mentality that he aspires to pass on to his children the way it was inspired in him by his father-in-law. “Not only he has taught me a lot about life and living, he keeps me grounded and mentors me like my late father did. I know he might not be well known but to me, the value of family goes beyond the rich and famous.”

His FLAIR win has opened a whole new path to success for David Delaney. With his strong sense of self-belief and hard work mentality, it is a bright future indeed – “believe in your goals and overcome your fears and progress in whatever you are doing…then repeat because life’s too short to limit yourself.”
