Exclusive for Vanity Teen online!


How did you end up being a model? I was scouted by a fashion photographer through instagram, he shot me in an editorial and after about a week or two I was signed to my first agency in my home city.

How would you describe yourself in three words? Intuitive, friendly, and optimistic!

What type of music do you like to listen to? Do you have any favourite songs? My taste in music is pretty wide ranging, I enjoy old school hip hop/rap, soul music, and smooth jazz. Sade, Wu-Tang Clan, Solange, A tribe called Quest, Drake, and The Fugees are all some of my favourite artists. A few of my favourite songs include, Bulletproof soul, Sativa, Passion fruit, Almeda, Chun Swae, and Jazz (We’ve Got)!

Would you say that your life has changed since you started this new modelling journey? Definitely! My life has changed a lot since I started my modelling journey. Being able to travel and be a part of whole new world, full of amazing creatives is always a highlight for me. And working with so many talented individuals is always inspiring.

What’s your favourite place? Are you a mountain, city or beach guy? My favourite place right now has to be LA. I love palm trees, and because I’m such a happy individual my spirit naturally lights up when I can be somewhere with a beach, and some sun. I am for sure a city guy though, I enjoy being downtown and having the convenience of everything be central.

Is there a model you really like right now? One you’d love to work with in the future? Naomi Campbell of course!

How would you describe Vanity Teen in three words? Diverse, relevant, and fun!
