1. How did you get into modeling?

It’s actually a funny story, I never meant to be a model. A great photographer approach me and offered me to take part in his project about human body and different kinds of type and letters (typography). It was amazing experience to make a photo-shoot completely naked. After my photos were published I started to get offers from other photographers around the globe who came to Tel-Aviv.

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

My day job is in the travel industry. I’m a manager of the suppliers and operation teams, lots of traveling around the world, business meetings etc.

3. What’s your most embarrassing moment?

I don’t get embarrassed so easily, but, when we photo-shoot my first modeling project, it was on the beach in the middle of nowhere (I was totally naked at that point) and suddenly a man who traveled with his dog just appeared and saw everything. It wasn’t embarrassing until he felt awkward and ran away from there.

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

I love the feedback I’m receiving from my followers. Lots of love and support, warm words. I like the fact I can impact on other guy’s style just by posting my cloth in a good photo.

I really do believe that this is the best please to make an impact on others, and be relevant for people around the world.

I hate the fact that some people feel like social media is a place they can say everything on their mind. No filters. With time I learned to ignore it and don’t react to anyone that sharing his naughty or hateful thoughts.

5. Describe your personal style?!

My style is something that I’m developing with time. Mostly I wear sport-elegant pieces with a blend of unique items. I always try to match colors, and make unique looks by trying bright colors, oversize shirt with skinny jeans etc. and a moment of honesty- I have 2 large closets, and not enough room for all my cloth. Oh well.


6. Favorite part of your body?

Definitely my legs. I work really hard (5 times a week at the gym) to stay in good shape.

Where are your roots?

I born in Israel, which is a pretty new country with a blend of many nations. My father side is originally from Morocco, my mother side is from Spain, but I’m above all – Israeli.

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

Just one!?
let’s say that I won’t throw Bradley cooper out of my bed.

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I’m an artist, draws and painting are my favorites. When I was 18 my drawings were presented at the museum of art in Haifa (the third biggest city in Israel). And I know really well my way in the kitchen, baking especially.
