Tell us a little about yourself?
About 5 years ago, I worked as a professional diver, one of my dreams was to be a diving instructor, and work on a nice island. I am currently a therapeutic massage specialist, and occasionally working as an advertising model, because only I measure 5’7”, and obviously working in fashion is extremely difficult.
I am working on my own, although it would be great to work in the future for a good agency.
My idea is to study interpretation. I feel very comfortable in front of the camera, and it really makes me very happy!
How did you get into modelling?
With the support of my immediate environment, I began my steps in photography, little by little, I got to know good professionals, whom I owe a lot to, not only as professionals but as people who have taught me a lot, and trusted in me 🙂
What’s the best moment in your modeling career so far?
My best, I think have been 90% of the time! I always have fun, I’m always learning something new, and end up with the feeling of being happy by doing something I really enjoy. I would say when I worked with photographers as Ashary / Digital Arts, Eduardo Peris, Pas Ibañez, Dylan Rosser in Ibiza those were true moments of bliss. Just to name a few.
What is your dream job as a model?
I pursue my dream to work in large advertising campaigns for international brands, it’s very complicated, but I think that dreams are my driving force; it allows me to put all my efforts into achieving my desires.
Time for us to discuss underwear! How often do you buy underwear and/or lounge pieces?
I love buying clothes, and usually do regularly, I love fashion, although I prefer to follow my own fashion. I like going to stores and seeing which clothes fit me better, but also I like to buy online, brands you do not usually find in Spain.
When you shop for underwear what do you look for?
I always look for something different, designs that are out of the conventional, beautiful lines, as long as it isn’t the same as everything else.
What’s your favorite underwear style and brand?
I like tight underwear, some colourful, but white and black is my favorite, with a classic youth flare. I normally decide my style of underwear according to time and the mood. My favorite brands are Rufskin, Aronik, Charlie by Matthew Zink and Moschino.
Photographers: Dylan Rosser and Ashary / Digital Art
Underwear/swimwear: Aronik, Charlie by Matthew and Squeeze.dog
