Place of Origin:
Gijón, Spain

Ethnic Origin:
1/2 Spanish 1/2 Croatian


How discovered:
I was scouted in a shopping mall in the Canary Islands while hanging out with my friends.

Favorite things:
I love sports, especially football (soccer). I’ve played sports since I was young and I’ve played professionally on several teams. Traveling is also one of my favorite things, I love spending holidays in Croatia, where my father is from. And of course, I really enjoy hanging out with my classmates and old friends.

Favorite music, band:
My favorite type of music is pop. At the moment my favorite singer is Aloe Blacc.

Favorite movie, tv show:
My favorite movie is a French movie named “The Untouchables.” My favorite TV show is a Spanish comedy called “La Que Se Avecina.”

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
Miuccia Prada.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I would be playing football and pursuing a law career.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Waiting at the airport can be hard sometimes, but I still love it.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
No doubt, my first job ever, when I opened Prada Menswear Spring-Summer 2015 in Milan. It was truly exciting and a challenging experience.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
As my parents are from two different countries, I have strong feelings about both places. In Asturias, Spain, I love the beautiful country side, natural environment, and the fantastic seafood. In Croatia, I love the coast with hundreds of islands and the crystal clear water is stunning.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
Calvin Klein.

Place you would love to visit:
I’d love to visit Alaska for its wild nature and unique landscapes. It’s different from anything I have ever seen.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I don’t have any particular obsession, but I have to admit that I can’t spend more than 24 hours without doing sports.

    What a stunning creature!
    wishing him the best

  • Alex

    He’s very cute. Ideal for young fashion brands.

  • He looks special in a good way! I like the fact that he doesn’t look conventionally pretty, he looks odd but depending on the angles he could do well on an editorial level.
