1. How did you get into modeling?
I’m originally an actor, clown mime, and with the time, many photographs, brands asked me to be a model for them, with my clown and also as me. I found modeling something fun in where I can play to show different faces of myself.
2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?
If I’m not a model, I usually work as an actor and clown I work in theaters, hospitals, schools, events and even in the street.
In this pandemic moment I work as a community manager for artists, mostly in the marketing and design area of social media.
3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?
I remember one of the last Photoshoot I’ve done. it was in Lyon France and during 3 hours there were more than 20 photographs around me. I was the only model and I was hard to know where to project my energy and body, as there were soooo many cameras. It was a nice moment in which I saw how different was the work of each of the photographs, I have 20 different pictures of each moment, from a different angle and optic. It makes me think about this phrase “I interpreted this as the wonders of diversit the beholder, embodied in two simultaneous posts”
4. What’s your life motto?
My life motto is my art, communicating what I do and sharing ma passion around the world, I love being on stage, I love making others think about what I’m doing professionally. I like traveling around and meet new cultures, in other to better understand the word and my mission on it.
5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!
My personal style is quite classic, most of my days I wear a shirt a polo and a sweater, I like colorful clothes and light clothes. My favourite fragrance is 1 millón from Paco Rabbane, very classic… But i love it
6. What genre of music best describes you?
I spend most of the day listening to music, and what I enjoy the most is opera, classical music and jazz. I did some ballet and I really enjoy these music because I find them rich for dancing and helpful for the movement of my mind and my body.
7. Where are your roots – The best thing about/to do in your hometown?
Argentina is a beautiful country, very big and full of different landscapes. I actually live in Buenos Aires, which is the capital and what I love about being here is all the culture, the museums, the architecture, the tango and the asado (traditional argentinean barbecue)
In my home city that is called Coronel Pringles, you can literally feel the calm of the pampa, the large skylines, the nature and the farm are beautiful, and makes me feel at home.
8. Name one celebrity you’d like to get naughty with!
Haha funny question, I guess it would be Daniel Radcliffe.
9. Do you have any special Talents?
I guess some of my biggest talents is the auditive part of me, I speak 4 languages and Im learning the 5th and I love learning by listening and speaking.
10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?
It’s funny to say, but actually in this quarantine mood what I find most interesting is every-time I can talk with my friends and family via a video call. I miss contact and I can’t wait to see them all again.
