Boma believes himself “exceptional” and characterizes himself as “attractive, clever, adventurous, strong, and fit.”
He makes ends meet by working as a bartender at night and a masseuse during the day while pursuing his acting career.
He has battled melancholy since his marriage ended and an injury during football tryouts, but he is determined to “never, ever, give up” and carry on to his dream.
Boma, a mixologist and masseuse, claims that there are “99 Pages of Boma” and that you never know which one you’ll get.
