ORANGE COUNTY IS THE THIRD-MOST POPULATED COUNTY IN CALIFORNIA, THE SIXTH-MOST POPULATED COUNTY IN THE UNITED STATES AND MORE POPULOUS THAN 21 OF U.S. STATES. INTERESTING FUN FACT. ORANGE COUNTY IS KNOWN FOR OTHER THINGS THAN THAT THOUGH. IT IS KNOWN FOR ITS BEAUTIFUL PACIFIC COASTLINE, WITH BEACHES SUCH AS HUNTINGTON BEACH, LAGUNA BEACH AND NEWPORT BEACH. AND OF COURSE IT IS KNOWN FOR THE CITY OF ANAHEIM, HOME TO THE FIRST DISNEYLAND EVER BUILT.
Zooming in we arrive in Irvine, a city developed in the 1960's by the Irving Company and located south-east of Santa Ana and north-east of Newport Beach. The city's mission statement is "to create and maintain a community where people can live, work, and play in an environment that is safe, vibrant, and aesthetically pleasing" and they do it well. So well that for the last decennium Irvine has been high in the top 10 of the best ad safest cities in the United States. Zooming in a bit further we arrive in a residential area that is home to the family Twitchell. A family with four sons, of whom Carson Twitchell is the youngest.
Carson Twitchell, born and raised in Orange County, California, has since long exchanged his seemingly idealistic hometown for less safer environment of New York City. Not because he felt the need to explore dangerous adventures, but because it is where his life passion has brought him. As a logical step in his life and career. Carson was raised an athlete, being an excellent soccer player. But life had other plans for him and it wasn't for long Carson gave up his soccer cleats for tap shoes (so to speak) and landed a role in the world famous musical Les Miserables. Because Carson Twitchell is a performer and entertainer in the core of his being.
Carson went on to study Music Dance Theatre at Brigham Young University where he toured with his performing group through Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Australia. He also studied Theatre Studies at the University of Utah before heading back to Southern California, Los Angeles to be precise, to pursue musical theatre and modeling. In the summer of 2014, Carson joined the stage actors' union, "Equity" and moved to from LA to NYC to further pursue musical theatre and modeling. Currently signed with the Men's division at MSA Models, Carson is gearing up for the coming season's work, be it fitness to high fashion, or commercial to production fit.
Roberto Araujo is back in NYC after being away for year and a half traveling around the world doing shows all over. From California to NY to Texas to Europe and Australia. After his successful first solo exhibit MALEXPOSURE, Roberto has a brand new look for his website where he showcases some of the most recent work, including Academy Award Nominee Michelle Williams, Golden Globe Nominee Alan Cumming among other Broadway and film celebrities. Carson Twitchell is especially excited about his recent shoot with photographer Roberto Araujo. Always eager to create with new artists, Carson jumped at the opportunity to shoot with Roberto, after seeing some of his previous work. Like peanut butter and jelly, it was a match made in heaven! And there is for sure more to come from these two. –BM-
