Former NFL Super Bowl Champion Devin Goda touches down on the busy streets of NYC, signing exclusively to Wilhelmina Models International. Committed to making his mark on the modelling industry the same way he did in football, we can’t wait to see what he does on this new playing field.
Q: Where is your favourite place to eat in New York City?
A: I recently went to this great spot in the Meatpacking District called The Monarch Room. It’s definitely been one of my best dining experiences to date. Great vibe and amazing food. If you are in NYC, you have to check it out.
Q: What do you do to de-stress and recharge?
A: I love working out and use it to relieve stress and clear my head. It always helps to bring me back to a grounded space.

A: It’s important to be a citizen of the world because whether we believe it or not, every individual has the power to create and influence change. It is our duty to be involved.
