Did you always want to be a model? Tell us about how you were discovered.
Honestly, yes, but I didn’t think it was possible due to my facial scars; I thought this industry was only looking for perfection. I was scouted at a music festival by a few agencies there, and I chose Rock Men.

Most memorable modeling experience so far?
Definitely my first job, my first show. I opened Alyx’s show (June ’23). I met Matthew Williams there; I really liked his vibe. He likes the same kind of music as me, and I love it.

One song you have on repeat, and why?
It’s Xaviersobased – “Wrong.” This song brings me good vibes and a good mood. The singer is chill, carefree.

What other passions do you have aside from modeling?
As you might imagine from my previous answer, I love music – this is my true passion! I listen to music all the time; whatever I do, wherever I am, music is always with me. I enjoy producing music as well.

What is something you’ve always wanted to do/try?
My dream aha – to be on stage and jump into people and body surf – it sounds childish, but to me, it’s freedom.

What’s one thing people may be surprised to find out about you?
They are surprised when I told them that I have a monozygotic twin.

What change would you like to see in the world?
I’d love for people to start loving themselves and living for themselves. We must believe in ourselves and do what we must do for our own good without worrying about other people’s thoughts and what they’ll think of us.
