189cm (6’2.5″)


Place of Origin:
Hamburg, Germany

Ethnic Origin:
I am German


How discovered:
I was like 14 years old and I was with my school class in an art museum. There was this guy who gave me his business card and told me to contact him in a few years. I kept his card for 3 years in my wallet, then I contacted him.

What was your first modeling job?
My first job was walking exclusive for Versace. This was so cool I still can’t believe it.

Favorite things:
Probably playing Fifa on Playstation and playing soccer/football, also I love to play guitar and sing in my spare time.

What are you listening to at the moment?
Uhh, a lot, probably to many, LOL. But my fav is Robin Schulz.

Favorite movie, tv show:
The Shawshank Redemption and Game Of Thrones

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I always like Giorgio Armani’s collections. My fragrances always change. So after my perfume is done I try new ones I use some beauty products for my skin like: Kiehl’s Facial Fuel, Neal’s Yard Remedies Men, Aveda Men Pure-Formance, Aesop, Clarins Men and the Tom Ford for Men Purifying Face Cleanser.

What were you doing before modeling?
I was a normal student like everyone else, going to school from Monday – Friday, doing homework at home and studying for the exams or tests. It was actually really hard for me, I always had to learn a lot to get good grades in exams.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I really want to study acting or singing. My desire is one day to be an actor or professional musician (guitar and singer).

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I don’t really know if that is uncool, but since I was like 6 years old I have my Nintendo 64 with my favorite games like Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64… I still could play this every single day with friends or alone. It’s just one of my favorite things to do since I was a kid.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I think my first job was at the same time also my favorite modeling experience. Still can’t believe I walked Versace exclusive.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I love going to the Elbphilharmonie to listen to a choir or an musical. Also it is lot of fun going with your family and friends to the Hamburger Dom, which is like a little adventure park with rollercoasters and lots of food and sweets. And one thing I haven’t done yet in Hamburg is going to the Lion King musical, which I really have to do because I’ve watched The Lion King movie around about 20-30 times, for real. I know every single lyric.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
That’s a really difficult question because there are plenty of brands I want to model for. I really would love to do a campaign for Giorgio Armani.

Place you would love to visit:
I would love to go again to Croatia, to the island Komiza which is close or almost right next to Split. It’s a really gorgeous place to visit. I love the view of the blue water to swim, snorkel or even ride a jetski there.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Getting my body in the best shape for fashion week this season :-)

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
I kinda live like the motto from Steve Jobs: “Live each day as if it was your last.”
