Following the success of Baskit Wear’s “Up Close & Personal” Q&A with modeling contest winners Tim Baird and Billy Dortch, comes Kody Corduan, the very sexy and tough guy with a killer face and body. This guy is more than just looks though – he’s got a thing for motorcycles and is making his own mark in the competitive world of Hollywood.

Here’s what Kody had to tell us when we peaked into his life and his love of Baskit…

BASKIT: What is your age and where you are from?
KODY: I’m 25 years old and I am from just outside Kody, South Carolina. I moved to California about five years ago.

BASKIT: What do you do for a living (aside from modeling)? What did you want to be when you were a kid?
KODY: Besides the occasional model gig, I’m also an actor. I shot two movies last year, still in post-production. “Messina High” which is a modern interpretation of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. The other film is called “Brothers Sinclair” In addition to the movies, I’ve been in shows such as Dexter, 90210 and Eleventh Hour. My first big role was as Joey Travolta in film called “Accidents.”

BASKIT: You have some body art - can you give us a description of it and what it means to you?
KODY: Sure, when I was 18 I got a dragon on a grim reaper's sickle on my left arm. I also have one on the inside of my right arm - a tattoo my father and I got, and on my left tricep I got a family tattoo with my stepbrother. They all have very personal meaning to me.

BASKIT: What's the best way to spend a day off? Extra hours at the gym? On the beach? Hiking?
KODY: Riding my motorcycle. I do enjoy hiking and surfing as well, but nothing compares to riding the asphalt at 100 mph.

BASKIT: Were you familiar with Baskit before the modeling opportunity?
KODY: I was not, but now that I am wearing them, I got to say that I love the fit. And the colors are great for me. BASKIT: Is there something thing you aren't doing that you wish you were? A sport/skill you were never good at or just haven’t gotten around to learning yet?
KODY: Nah, I'm very happy with my life and where I am. I’m grateful to have what I have and be who I am.

BASKIT: What is the best advice anyone has ever given you?
KODY: Figure out for yourself what is true, don't blindly follow the world.

BASKIT: On a random Saturday, what are you likely to be wearing?
KODY: Ha, um.. Jeans and a tee with underwear!

BASKIT: If you had a week on a beach and could only take three things with you what would they be (aside from clothes and money)?
KODY: Books, surfboard and a pillow.

BASKIT: Any other interest tidbits or pieces of information you'd want to share with the readers? Something nobody knows about you?
KODY: I'm a part of the Sons of God motorcycle club. Check it out!
