We had the chance to talk with David Barta from the reality show Paradise Hotel who is a fitness trainer and was a college baseball player.
The Dapper Style: Where are you from and where are you now?
David: I was born and raised in Burbank, CA where I still currently reside. However, in August I will be moving down to Playa Vista, CA.
The Dapper Style: What was the best part of being an athlete?
David: For me, the best part of being an athlete was being able to use both the talents I had been blessed with, but also the skills and knowledge I had worked for to perform for myself, and my teammates.
The Dapper Style: You have also been modeling. How did you get started?
David: I started modelling in July of 2018 only two months after my baseball career-ending injury, as I was searching for a new passion in life. I shot with two different photographers in that summer, including an Instagram campaign for Bright Swimwear, which got the attention from my current agent at CESD Print Los Angeles.
David: The best part of Paradise Hotel was being able to enjoy the experience for the month that we were in Mexico. In the climate of my life and careers as a trainer and a model, it is not often that I have days where I am able to spend time to enjoy the company of other individuals and relax.
The Dapper Style: What’s your favorite adult beverage?
David: My favorite adult beverage is a vodka Red Bull.
The Dapper Style: What place do you want to visit in the world?
David: I have always wanted to visit Hawaii because of its distinctive culture as well as the beautiful nature and its scenery.
