Pietro Boselli: The Engineer Who Became a Model
Pietro Boselli began modeling professionally at the age of six in his home town of Brescia, Italy. But when moved to London to go to university (University College of London, Mechanical Engineering with high honors, 2010), he knew that his modeling would detract from his academic achievements. So gradually he refused assignments, deleted it from his resume, and went into the closet.
Uh-oh. What happens when you google "Pietro Boselli" and "Modelling," hoping to find some of his academic research on the topic?
Resigning himself to his fate -- and anxious to make some extra money to pay his university fees - Pietro signed on with Models 1, and began to get prestigious assignments for Abercrombie & Fitch, Moschino, Equinox, and Vogue.
Dr. Boselli worries about what will happen in the future. How will he be taken seriously at conferences? How will he be able to get an academic job?
Meanwhile modeling is fun, and you get used to the constant cruising and sexual innuendos.
He hasn't specified a sexual orientation, but he's happy to give interviews to gay magazines, so I'm going to guess straight.
