Meet Trey, our go-go dancer for the month of August. Trey dances all over West Hollywood and the greater Los Angeles area. We met up with him at Rage Nightclub West Hollywood for a sweaty photoshoot and probing Q&A.

Trey brings a mixture of a southern twang, exotic looks, big muscles and smarts to match. The guy has a BA in Chemical Engineering to prove it.

Where are you from?
I’m originally from Alabama. I moved here back in January. I was getting flown out here to dance for a little over a year. I finally decided to move. It’s a lot easier than flying back and forth. I love it here.

You look very exotic. What’s your ethnic background?
Everybody thinks I’m Latino, but I’m actually half Vietnamese and the other half is white. I go to the tanning beds a lot, so I’m normally a lot lighter than this.

What’s your astrological sign?

What’s your relationship status?
I am single.

How long have you been dancing?
I’ve been dancing for about a year and a half now.

What’s it like dancing at Rage Nightclub?
I love it. I’m always out in the scene and I get paid. Most people have to pay to go out, but I get paid to come out and party. I dance all over the city for other clubs as well.

At what point does go-go dancing become work?
It can be work when you’re dancing five nights a week, but it’s still a lot of fun.When I first started dancing I was nervous. I mean, you’re up there in your underwear. Anybody would be nervous, but you get used to it after a while and it’s a lot of fun.

What goals do you have for yourself?
I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Chemical Engineering in May. I have that degree, so I’m just doing this for fun. Dancing got me to L.A., so now that I’m here. I would like to eventually find a job in that field. That’s my goal.

What’s your hottest physical feature?
I don’t know…

What’s your physical umm… asset that gets the most compliments?
Probably my ass. Also my smile.

What’s the largest tip you ever received from a guy?

What’s the largest tip you ever received from a woman?
I would say $20.00

What do you drink to get you in a dancing mood?
My favorite alcoholic drink is a shot of vodka. I chase it with some lime.

What is one thing that people are surprised to learn about you?
People are surprised to learn that I have a Bachelors in Chemical Engineering and that I’m still doing this. But I’m dancing just for now.
