How did you get into modeling?

Somehow it has always been in my mind. So during my studies in Paris, I took the opportunity to start a book with a first photo shoot, then I did a runway for the fashion association of my school. But at this time I was so overwhelmed by my studies that I didn’t go further.

What are you doing if you are not modeling?

I’m doing acting aside of modeling.

In the past I was working in finance. Let’s say modeling brought some colors in this dark world hahaha

Otherwise I like spending time with my cats and practice sports with friends.

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

When I was 21 yo I had to speak in front of 200 hundred people with no preparation.

Whats your life moto?

Work Hard Play Hard!

Quality over quantity.

Better be alone than in bad company.

Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!

I love wearing suits (Maybe my past into finance has to do with it) and italian fashion <3

My favorite fragrances include Spicebomb from Viktor & Rolf and Stronger with You from Emporio Armani.

What genre of music best describes you?

I love movie soundtracks. No lyrics but high impact 😉

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

I spent my childhood in countryside, so anything related with nature.

Name one celebrity youd like to get naughty with!

I do not really take time to follow celebrities (I prefer working on myself) and since I do not have a particular type it’s quite hard to name one 🙂

Do you have any special Talents?

Acting ? I believe acting is first a talent that you need to develop afterward.

Talking sports, I’m a former rowing champion; perseverance and discipline have no secrets for me 😉

Apart of that, people say I’m really at ease to build new relations. If you invite me to one event, I will get out knowing everyone. I think everyone has something to teach you.

What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?

So poor news in these troubled times…but waiting for the next episode of US Vs China 😀
