1. How did you get into modeling?

I needed to get into modeling when I was trying to make my way in the concert world, then I realized that exploit my full physical potential, show it to people, and feel their appreciation like a musician and like a person is something that really fills me that all.

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

I’m a classical concert pianist and teacher, I really enjoy my work cause this gives me the opportunity to connect with people (public/students), show my inner self and do what I like the most, travel…

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

The last year I was in Switzerland with a friend, she wanted to visit Milano, so we left some of our bags in Geneva and we took a train to Italy. When we arrived I wanted to pay the hotel with my credit card, but they did not accept this, we had not enough EU cash cause in Switzerland we used CHF, so we went to a McDonald s Coffee with free Wi-Fi to call to our families. We were there till 1:00 AM when it closed.
So, we were afraid, in the street, before the ‘’Duomo’’ I proposed her to find a disco to spend the night, we were hanging around for a long time till I could convince her. We found two pretty girls that gave us indications to find ‘’Moscova’’ the disco area, they warned us that Moscova was too far to walk, but we hadn’t any reason to hurry up.

2:30 AM we were lost, walking around Sfoerzeco castle, it was light up and beautiful as always. When we finally found the correct way, and before a large street, we realized that an Indian look-like guy started to follow us, we wanted to lose him of sight, but he kept behind us with his zombified look
3:00 AM We finally found the disco, and we were there till’ 6:00 AM (With our bags and completely sober) when the morning came we sleep under a bush at the foot of the Sfoerzeco.

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

I really love the fact that you can share your thoughts, life and all that you are with a large audience, social media can cut distance, and give new business opportunities.
In the other hand, It’s easy to pretend a perfect life, but the truth is that we all have Happy and Blue days (Red days sometimes)
Cyberstalking it’s a great problem too, we all should try to be more empathetic.

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

Hipster, maybe? But I don’t feel identified that all.
I’m not a big fan of the great brands, I wear clothes that seems nice to me from any brand and always using the ‘’Golden Secret’’ fragrance.

6. Describe yourself in 3 words:

I’m the ………………..DEVIL,
Being a ………………PIANIST
Wearing a nice ………BOW TIE

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

Santiago it’s a very modern and well organized city, I lived all my life here but today I’m not feeling part of one place in particular, my roots are my family and my true friends that’s what I value the most.

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

OMG! I don’t get naughty with anyone! (Not true) Taylor Swift, definitely, I have to say that I’m not a big fan of all her music, but when I heard ‘’REPUTATION’’ I Though:
-That’s really creative! The production, the lyrics, I love it! In the other hand, I really admire her ability to turn the strong criticism in self-growth

9. Do you have any special Talents?

Getting drunk quickly, isn’t it?
I tried to play bass trombone at the school, I was terrible,
I’m not good as a cook,
But I’m proud about my piano playing…

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

Have ever heard about Nick Champa and Pierre Bouvier Team? These guys are incredible, they are a great example of self-growth and self-reliance, I really believe that this kind of Influencers/Youtubers gives an incentive to people to expand and improve as persons.
Basically, you could be whatever you want, who you want to be?
