Austin, Texas native Shayne Davis was discovered at age nineteen by his mother's significant other, also a male model. Although he in deeply interested in all facets of the fashion industry, he also enjoys boxing, mixed martial arts (MMA), and weight lifting.
Nearly three months after signing with an agency, Davis was tragically injured. He was temporarily paralyzed and bound to a wheelchair as a result of the incident, but reemerged stronger than ever. He even walked in his first runway during New York Fashion Week nine months later.
He credits all of the wonderful people at the hospital for inspiring him to never giving up on being able to walk. In his own words: "They hooked me up with a super fast custom wheelchair, and one of my fondest memories is of the races we'd have down the corridor of the hospital."
