In the last 10 years Jay Bulger has been a Golden Gloves boxer, a day trader, a male model with a cover of Vogue Hommes under his belt, a music video director, a journalist, and a documentary film maker. Oh, and add cancer survivor to that list. He’s also just 30 years old.
The reason we’ve met up is to discuss his latest career move as a documentary film maker. He’s just put out his first doc, Beware of Mr. Baker, about legendary and controversial rock drummer Ginger Baker. You can catch it at Film Forum now.
But as we’re in the business of fashion and Bulger is a former male model–we had to pick his brain about his former career as well as his new one. And since Bulger’s modeling days are behind him, his take on male modeling and the fashion industry is delightfully unfiltered.
