Q: Do you prefer working on shoots or at shows?

It depends. I like both. Variation is a good thing.


Q: Best and worst parts of being a model?

Good thing is you get to travel so much and you experience so many different things. And not so good thing for me is to be so far away from my family and friends. As a model you meet a lot of new people, but a few you really get to know.


Q: What would you dare to learn?

French. Damn its hard to learn!


Q: What is your dream modeling job?

Just a job that really stands out. Something crazy and of course with a great team!
