How discovered:
I begged my Mom to take acting classes so she brought me to John Robert Powers. But she only allowed me because we had an agreement that I would take etiquette classes because I acted like a boy. Lol I took 1 class and this woman found me and asked me to join a competition in NY called IMTA and I won. That is where LA Models found me. I never took those etiquette classes by the way ?

Favorite things:
I love food! I can’t live without food. I eat when I’m sad… A lot. I eat when I’m happy. I love eating at new places and I cook a lot at home. Food is my weakness. If I don’t eat you will definitely know… Like a Snickers commercial x100 lol. I’m addicted to Class Pass if you haven’t tried it you should download the app. It is amazing! For a workout junkie it’s heaven!

What are you listening to at the moment?
Currently playing MATOMA Mix

Favorite movie, tv show:
Movies: Where dreams may come. Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind. Inception. Shows: Breaking Bad. House of Cards. Shelby the Swamp Man. Empire. Lip Sync Battle. I had an obsession with Revenge, I watched episode after episode on Netflix.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
Celine is one of my favorites Phoebe Philo is a genius. I love Prada! Miuccia Prada never fails she is life lol. Gucci SS16 is so amazing! Currently wearing Gucci Bamboo. But I’m obsessed with Tom Ford White Suede. I’ve tried so many different products but Cetaphil has been the best product for me. I use both face wash and lotion. Ecohvie Oil on my body.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I would probably still be in the fashion business. I love clothes. I have an addiction with fine clothes and shoes. It’s art! Takes such talent to design beautiful clothes.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
My boy friend makes fun of me because I love what he calls nerdy shows… The Big Bang Theory. Star Wars. Harry Potter. My obsession with romantic love novels. Fifty Shades of Grey. Hunger Games.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
Since I signed with DNA I’ve been having fun with all the new adventures they send me off on… But shooting with Alexei Hay for Elle Italia was definitely a fun experience.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
My family is from a small town in Batangas, PI. I am so proud to be Filipino. Some of the most loving kindest people I know. The food and culture is what I miss the most. If you have never tried Filipino food you should go try it… Now. It will change your life lol.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
Estée Lauder beauty campaign would be an amazing dream come true. I’ve always been a fan of Estée Lauder. Tom Ford beauty. Prada would be so dope! I would love to walk for Gucci, Prada, Celine, Tom Ford, Givenchy… The list goes on lol. So many amazing designers I would love to work with one day. I love fashion.

Place you would love to visit:
I would love to go to Thailand one day and visit an elephant reserve. Elephants are the most beautiful creatures.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I’ve been cooking a lot lately. I love making different things. For breakfast this morning I made a “breakfast spring roll” — egg whites with bell peppers, onions, broccoli and I put fresh spinach and bean sprouts at the end for a crunch. Dipped it in sriracha. It was so damn good. ?
