1. How did you get into modeling?
I’ve been in love with the fashion world since I was just a child. Then I grew up and I became independent enough to make my own decisions so I went to the beach and there after two months of meditation It came up to me and I started into the modeling world when I was 24yrs.
2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?
I do many things in different areas, I’m an artist so I love doing art specially with paintings, I do photography, art edition for pictures, interior design, carpentry, gardening, additional to this I’m a dancer and I love to do different kind of sports, sometimes I love cycling in my city (Bogotá), downhill, walking, climbing, trekking also I wrote poems.
3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?
The most spontaneous, I was in a modeling contest, I and the finalists were together partying in one of the nicest Clubs in Bogota and we did a cat walk together for the people there, the DJ put us music and everybody were so excited.
The most difficult, it was with my bro from Canada, he was here for vacations and we went to my hometown together, we cycled by the mountain for four hours under the inclement sun and the hottest hours of the day, it was an amazing experience but only to do it once.
The most strange, I pose naked in front of twenty people for an art gallery in Bogotá, I did it alone and then with another ten models completely naked we were so close to feel each other’s body (each part) hehe.

My life moto it’s my family and friends then I can say that feelings are the most important thing in my life.
5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!
I’m a fashionista, I’m so versatile and changeable, the only thing that cares me it’s if I feel cool and comfortable. My favorite brands are Dolce & Gabbana but it isn’t a must. I love independent brands which are original and with which I can identify myself, I believe that you don’t need to be rich to be fashionable.
