How discovered:
I was walking down the street a cold November day and I got stopped, and got asked if I wanted to be a model.

Favorite things:
I can’t live without music, parties and my computer.

What are you listening to at the moment?
My favorite bands are Behemoth, Satyricon and Emperor at the moment.

Favorite movie, tv show:
Any movie based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s work.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I love all the jackets and suits from Tiger of Sweden and Hugo Boss fragrances.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I would probably go to school and then afterwards either try to open my own bar or club or study music management.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I wouldn’t call it “uncool” but I love books and I love to play videogames once in a while with some friends.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
My first show ever, I had to get up at 3 in the morning to catch my flight to Stockholm for fashion week, and the first show was for The Swedish School of Textiles. I got there way later than anyone else because of the traffic from the airport so I had one tryout walk and that was before we had to walk the show. I had no other practice what-so-ever and this was my very first encounter with the modeling industry. When we got to walking the show I had to walk first in my group and open in front a crowd of about 500 people. It was the most exciting thing ever. I was super scared but I pulled it off.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I love the caf├ęs all around Aarhus and you can go almost anywhere and have a cup of coffee and a 10 minute break.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would love to walk a show for Tiger of Sweden.

Place you would love to visit:
I would love to visit Prague because I have some friends there and the night life should be absulutely amazing as far as I have heard.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I’ve mostly been looking for apartments in Aarhus, as well as trying to get back into playing music.
