How would your friends and family describe you?
A bit like ‘Le petit prince’: sensible, sort of a dreamer with big dreams!
Where did you grow up? Did it shape the man you’re today?
I grew up in the 6th district of Paris, the latin and artistic area, with a lot of galleries, artists and movement. I think my sensibility comes from that.
Tell me how your modeling career came about
I started quite recently, less than a year ago. My agent scouted me on Instagram and, shortly after that, he sent me to Mexico to take the first steps.
Are you more of an introvert or a social butterfly extrovert?
I’m more of an extroverted social butterfly.
Walk me through a day in your life!
Every day isn’t the same, and I hope it’ll be like this all my life. For today, I’ll say waking up, coffee, cigarette and then taking pictures of anything I see around me that sparks my interest.
If you were a season, which season would you be and why?
Spring, very colourful and ever-changing.
Spring-Summer or Fall-Winter fashion?
Spring-Summer fashion, hands down!

What’s the food you crave the most?

What’s something you’ve read lately that really resonated with you?
Don’t use your energy to worry, use it to believe, create, trust, grow, glow, manifest and heal.
Do you have a life motto or mantra?
‘Bendita locura que lo cura todo’ (in English, ‘Bless the madness that heals everything’).

Somewhere around the world, taking pictures (Smiles, E.D)!
