192 cm of pure bestiality
Place of Origin:
Svendborg (A small city 150 kilometers west of Copenhagen), Denmark
I was walking down one of the streets in Copenhagen with two friends, one of them could not go unnoticed with his 212 centimeters and the other one was celebrating his newly accomplished top grade in his final exam, and I had just been to a handball tournament in France which we won, so the mood was great and we were just making fools of ourselves. Then Benjamin (agent and from 2pm) came by and talked about modeling. Three weeks later I was in Milan, doing the Versace show exclusively!
Being ahead of schedule!
Favorite music, band:
I listen to almost all genres of music. But for the time being: The weeknd, The XX, Pharrell Williams, Frank Ocean and De Royale (a Danish group).
Handball (more an obsession/passion than a hobby), friends and family.
Favorite piece of clothing:
Either my vintage denim jacket, or my tie-dye t-shirt with a print of the space shuttle “Endeavour” taking off towards outer space.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Well, I love lots of uncool stuff… Old Disney movies, conspiracy theories, Monty Python, science… But the number one is to play table tennis with my granddad, even though I haven’t beaten him one single time in my life (He is 83, suffering from cancer, and still beats me every time…).
Favorite modeling experience so far?
Overall it has been great, but doing the Versace exclusively for the second time was perfect! A good combination of meeting new people and reunite with friends from the past season.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Well, obviously not the weather… But I love the fact, that Denmark is such a small but very welcoming country.
Favorite artist (any kind):
Dennis Rodman (You’ve got to consider him as an artist!)
Place you would love to visit:
The major cities in the US, which would be the opposite of what I’m used to in Denmark.
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Handball, spinach, finishing high school, and reading a book by Paulo Coelho called “The Alchemist”.
