How did you get into modelling?
I was scouted by the awesome photographer Romain Duquesne when I was walking home. It was a bit surprising but I took the chance and now, 3 months later, I'm in London.

There's so much to see in this world, and I have the technology and the time to see it all.

The best part of modelling would have to be meeting new, exciting people and working with those people to create an amazing finished product.

My day to day style is fairly relaxed, I like to wear 'clothes for all occasions' such as clean, straight jeans and a button-down shirt.
