Cover Model Week has come to an end. *sad faces* We may be doing this again…maybe. Hope that you’ve enjoyed it and we can’t let you go without introducing you to another hottie. He’s a cover model, he’s a fashion model, and he’s so much more. Truly impressed with all that he’s achieved and can’t wait for you to meet him.
~ LEE DAHLBERG ~
Welcome to Under the Covers, Lee. Thanks for participating in our Cover Model Week as part of our Countdown to RT 2013!
Describe yourself in three words.
Witty Fun Outgoing
How did you get started in the business of being a cover model?
Grossman&Jack modeling agency scouted me for cover modeling
Is it easier to have a love life as a model?
The love life of a model is centered on the woman with confidence. Since we are paired up weekly with different ‘fake spouses’ and such it will make relationships difficult. So I believe it’s harder unless they themselves are in the biz.
What’s the best thing about your job? What’s the worst?
I am an artist/ writer/painter/comedian so the best part of my job is the time allowed to pursuit these other goals. Also the travel is amazing. The worst is the trade in of security for adventure. The biz is not stable so money ebbs and flows which can stress you out if you don’t have other sources of income.
What would you do on an ideal date?
I love low key dates. I like to take girls on bikes from my house to a local dive where we can chat on the ride there by the water. No heels, no clubs equals a real conversation I think.
Do you read any of the books for which you are on the cover?
Haha. Not that I wouldn’t but thus far no one has every sent me one that I’m featured on. I think I would totally thumb thru one…lol
What was the last thing to make you feel happy?
I’m in Thailand on an amazing model gig as I am filling out these questions…so the last thing to make me happy is every second here at the Indigo Pearl Resort in Phuket Thailand where I am the face of the resort and it’s international campaign.
What’s your favourite Movie quote?
I think it’s silly when guys quote tough guy movies. I think quotes are purely for laughs. So I quote Anchor Man and Swingers probably more then I should. “Stay classy San Diego” and “You’re so money and you don’t even know it…you’re like a bear….” Haha
Have you ever been skinny dipping?
I am the first one to go skinny dipping every time. I have no shame in that department. I think it’s more funny then sexy but it usually ends up sexy;). I’ve been skinny dipping in Italy, England, Germany, Sweden, Thailand and probably places I’ve forgotten…lol
Whats the longest you’ve ever grown your hair? Any pics?
I had Jesus hair for 5 years complete with a beard and all. I loved it till the day I cut it and thought “what took me so long to cut it!” It changes people’s perceptions of you. I found that no one took me serious in business with long hair. Fortunately, I am a jewelry designer and have a company called ROCK BANDS by Lee Dahlberg so the hair fit the image. I joke in hairstyles I went from Jesus to Elvis!
How would you describe your personal style?
I am in fashion biz for 22 years and design jewelry at WWW.LeatherRockBands.com so I like style and think I am somewhere between hipster and rocker. I love tee shirt, jeans and sport coat look. Shoes, watch and my accessory line are very important details to me. I like things that tell stories. Vintage clothing mixed with newer piece is my style. Thrift store with private label. I’m in Thailand now where I have suit jackets and shirts custom made…it’s amazing.
If you weren’t in the modeling business, what other profession would you like to be in?
I am lucky that I am able to own an ad agency at WWW.MyRockGroup.com. I perform comedy at YouTube “Lee Dahlberg Comedian”. I paint at WWW.LeeDahlberg.com and I write at WWW.RockandTalk.com as well as design at WWW.LeatherRockBands.com. So modeling or not, I already do and try everything I love! I was supposed to be a lawyer. I went the way of the arts like my amazing dance teaching mother Julanne.
Tell us more about RockBands!
ROCK BANDS is still my favorite idea I’ve had this far. It’s as simple as it sounds and is actually a ‘Rock’ on a leather ‘Band’ making a unique bracelet. A little deeper, I use stones with healing elements creating a positive energy product. The were seen on Oprah and most recently on ABC’s Shark Tank. They are a hit with celebrities on the wrists of Bono, Johnny Depp, the Pits, the Beckhams, the Kardashians and countless other celebs from Hollywood, sports athletes, singers, politicians, fashionistas and many more movers and shakers. It makes people smile at my little idea and that’s what drives me most.
Well, I think you have everywhere that you can find Lee at. Go check it out! He’s super nice.
Here’s what we’re going to do during Cover Model Week. We will pick a winner next week and lucky maiden will get to choose a book they want with one of the cover models we’ve featured on the cover 🙂 This is open internationally!
