I starter modelling like one year ago. I was at a party and the girlfriend of a friend of mine came to me and said that I really should send my pictures to Max Models (she is a model there). So I did and not long after that I signed with Max Models.

As a person no, but now I am able to travel the world for work which is really nice!
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your personal style? Where do you pull your inspiration from?
Fashion is a big part of my life. I like to look good and I am always watching for new things to wear. I get my inspiration from my friends and from the street. Instagram is also a nice platform to discover new styles.
I like the color black. My closet is full of black clothes.
