Raphael Smith

>Morning person or night owl? I usually go to bed relatively late and get up early to hit the gym.

>Books or magazines? Books. I like either history or something I’m going to gain knowledge from.

>Dressing up or dressing down? Both, depending on the occasion. I like clothing, period.

>Three things you can’t live without: The gym, my family and a kitchen — I love to cook.

>Your best feature: My personality. I get misjudged a lot of the time, but then people get to know me — there’s a lot more to me than you may think.

>How would your best friends describe you? A sincere, kind person who likes to have fun.

>How would your ex describe you? She would probably say that I’m spoiled, but a lot of fun.

>Outside of work and sleep, what takes up the biggest chunk of your time? The gym. I go every day even when I’m not training, sometimes two to three times a day.

>How do you feel about living with animals? I have a fish — his name is Red because that’s what color he is.

>What’s your favorite ... place on earth? South Beach. ... way to relax? A full body massage at a spa. I get one every week. ... TV show?  “Bionic Woman” and “The Boondocks.” ... season? Summer. You can get out and do more, expand more culturally, and you don’t have to wear so many clothes. ... drink? Pineapple juice, watermelon pucker and blackberry schnapps.
