Star sign-  Aries

Where are you living/ from? I am originally from Germany but I have been travelling for the past couple of months so at the moment I am living wherever I land.

How did you get into modelling? I first got noticed when I was 14 through Facebook while living in Germany. Thanks to that I worked with a successful photographer a bit on test shoots which gained me fantastic experience at a young age.  After that I had a break from modelling and worked on my studies. It wasn’t until I was 17 that I considered modelling again and I sent my images to a German modelling agency called Modelwerk. They accepted me and the rest is history.

What would you be doing if you weren’t a model? My main passion is music, I play the guitar and write my own songs. My music has a commercial element similar to that of Jason Mraz & Bruno Mars.

What has been your favourite experience while modelling so far? Being able to work in New York & travelling is up there with one of the top perks of the job. The greatest achievement of my career so far has been getting a big campaign as well as opening and closing for Calvin Klein. One of my goals was to get a cover and I recently also just had my first one on the cover of Rollercoaster.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modelling? Well I quit studying Information Sciene to pursue my career in modelling.  This industry is a great place to get your face known and to have the chance to be recognized for my music from this would be a bonus.

How do you relax when you get back home to Germany?  Just seeing my friends and playing the guitar is enough for me.
