New or recycled? Recycled. Cat or dog? Cat! Bus or bike? Bike. Are you into reading? No, I’m not. Any pet hates? No, not really… What do you have for breakfast? A cheese sandwich.

Are you into thrift shopping? No, I’m not. Has your personal style changed since you started modeling? I don’t think so. I look at clothes a bit differently now, but my preferences haven’t changed. What’s that one thing you had to wear for a job and wished you could have brought home with you? At the Sankuanz show, I got to wear some weird claws. They weren’t comfortable at all, but they looked kind of cool: the fingers where separated from each other! Do you have any style-related advice on how to stand out from the crowd? Generally speaking, it’s really easy to stand out. For example, you can wear a cosplay outfit! Paris or London? London. Any childhood nicknames? No, not really!

Leather jacket or puffer? Leather jacket. What’s your most treasured possession? My bass guitar. How did you first get into modeling? I got scouted in Utrecht and just went on… If you weren’t a model, what would you be? I’d be a sound and vision engineer, mainly working in theatres! 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. Traveling around from city to city and meeting interesting people is amazing. That being said, the communication with my foreign agencies can be a bit difficult at times. Do you have any ‘secret talents’? I don’t know what could be defined as a ‘secret talent’, but I play music and I’m planning on forming a band again. By the way, I play the drums and bass guitar. What’s your favourite song? ‘The Chain’ by Fleetwood Mac.
