Exclusively Fashion Magazine:
How did you get discovered and who discovered you?
It's a long story. When I
was 18 I had a fight with my father. I left home and so
he stopped supporting me and giving me money. I was
in the 2nd year of University and needed to find a job
to support myself. A friend of mine was the owner
of a famous bathing suit store in a shopping mall in my
hometown and they needed extra people for the summer
time and gave me the job.
So one day while I was working, a scouter was shopping in
the store and "discovered" me. I left the store,
the University and a month later I was in Milan.
It was all a bit crazy to me.
Was modeling something that you always wanted
No...at that time I was really
focused on my studies and I really liked my life.
I started because I had that opportunity and I just
wanted to see where it could lead me and have a look
into the fashion 'world'.
How long have you been a model?
I started 6 years ago...but I stopped to finish
University. Then I came back...so let's say 4
Tell me something that you love about modeling?
I really love my job now and all the things that come
with it. I love acting, traveling, meeting
different people and seeing different places.
EFM: How has modeling changed your
It changed a lot my lifestyle...I
am always traveling, I am always far away from home,
family and friends.
EFM: What is your
favorite thing about being a part of Future Models
My favorite thing is that I really
feel like they are my family...my Italian family.
I love them in all senses, personally and
professionally. They have such a nice energy and
it's such a wonderful family.
EFM: Do you have any
friends that are models; who are they?
Yes, actually I have many real good friends doing this
EFM: With modeling
comes with jet setting around the world; where was your
most favorite city, country that you have been?
I like Milan a lot because of my
agency and friends, but talking about cities I loved
Barcelona. And by the way, I am going back there
Before becoming a model; was there anything else that you
wanted to be?
I studied engineering and
business. But honestly throughout my life, I
wanted to do so many different things. For
example: I played, seriously, soccer when I was young.
I was a good player, but I stopped because of my studies.
I also love things where I can use my creativity like
acting, music, writing etc.
advice can you give to aspiring male models?
I was born bold, naked and with no teeth. Nothing
is impossible. Just follow your dreams!
