If your life was a movie. Who would play you? Michael Cera, for sure. How did you first get into modeling? A lot of my friends enjoyed photography in high school. So, I ended up getting many good pictures of myself. Then, I was scouted at my local shopping mall. If you weren’t a model, what would you be? I’d be a businessman. As there are lots of misconceptions about modeling, I’d like to ask you what the best (and worst) part of your job really is. I think it isn’t as easy as it seems, it’s art. The best part is the things that come with the job (all the traveling, parties and clothes), but the worst part is definitely being away from home. Do you have any ‘secret talents’? I love to freestyle rap. What’s your favourite song? At the moment, my favourite song is ‘Lost’ by Playboi Carti.
