1. How did you get into modeling?

If I’m going to be quite honest. I would probably say the good ole MySpace days. I remember I would set my old digital camera uo on self timer and pose. I began to realize that I was begining on getting lots of likes on photos. Thats when I knew I had something special about me. I could take a killer photo.

2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?

When I’m not modeling, I’m staying active. Mainly Bartending at night, and keeping fit throughout the day. Making sure I have some time to write in my book that one day I hope to publish.

3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?

Hmm… Good one. So recently I went out of the country, to spend some time with a friend. When I got checked into the hotel my poor friend was having some car issues getting to me, due to the gas crisis that was going on in the country. I went to the lobby to drink and made some friends. A couple days later the friends I made convinced me to jump on a bus, from the current town we were in to this small hippie town. I thought okay not too bad. Well the trip ended up being a 8 hr trip through the jungle. I had no clue where I was at, and just met these people. The ride there was something else, I jumped on a bus 3 hrs one direction. Got dumped on the side of the road to catch another bus heading another direction etc.  Then finally a small taxi at 11.50pm to  make it to my little hippie beach destination. This was by far the wildest most spontaneous thing I have ever done. So many things could have gone wrong, but luckily I ended up spending the weekend with my new friends on the beach detached from reality walking around barefoot through the town.

4. What do you love on Social Media? – What do you hate on Social Media?

What I love most about social media is the platform it gives you to express yourself, to  use your full creativity. What I dislike about social media is how thirsty people get in order to be liked and get attention. Where they are getting attention for all the wrong reasons and not having sort of creative thought or values behind there work.

5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!

My personal style is a mixture of runaway with a touch of urban streetwear and practicality. I could wear a plain white t-shirt with some ripped all saints jeans some vans and a cartier bracelet with a Burberry button up around my waist.

6. Describe yourself in 3 words:

Individualistic, personable, and relatable

7. Where are your roots – The best thing about/to do in your hometown?

I’m a Puerto Rican kid who’s roots are from up north. I grew up in Ct, I’m first generation in my family to come to the United States so there was some difficulties expressing that to my parents at times. What I loved about growing up was the fact that I was the first to accomplish and experience new things.

8. Name one celebrity youd like to get naughty with!

Haha! Gonna sound dorky but Joseph Gordon Levitt. He just seems like a good funny guy.

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I’m  pretty decent snowboarder, had to do something in the winter up north.

10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?

Personally something that I find extremely interesting online at the moment is the entire tiny house living. I kind of want one but then think about well is it worth the investment? I get so many mix reviews about them.
