Place of Origin:

Ethnic Origin:
100% French


How discovered:
I was in McDonalds in Paris with my girlfriend asking for a glass of water, when a scout approached me.

Favorite things:
I’ve been practicing martial arts since the age of 8 and love training in different fighting styles.

Favorite music, band:
I love all reggaeton and latin music.

Favorite movie, tv show:
American Gangster is my favorite movie because Denzel Washington knows how to take care of business.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
Hermès and Armani are my favorite designers and I switch off between Allure Homme Sport by Chanel and Spicebomb by Viktor&Rolf.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I would be training for my next international championship of Thai boxing.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Don’t tell anyone, but I like watching The Voice. It is cool watching undiscovered talent.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I shot an editorial for Commons&Sense in the island of Porquerolles in the South of France. The weather was perfect, the team was great, and we were able to go swimming in the sea.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The bakeries in France are so great, especially for their chaussons aux pommes. The only similar thing they have in the US is apple turnovers, but they are not nearly as good.

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

Place you would love to visit:
I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii and Tahiti since I love the beach and warm weather.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Although I am not vegan, NYC has really delicious and healthy vegan food that I can’t get enough of.
