World Class London Models Magazine: Please tell us about yourself.
Born in Ecuador from a Dutch father and an Ecuadorian mother. We then moved to Netherlands but my father passed away when I was very young so we traveled back to Ecuador. I was raised in a very nice home with my mother, my older brother, my grandparents, my aunt and my cousin. As I grew older I got really interested into playing music so I started learning how to play guitar. I studied an undergraduate course in Music Production and now I have moved to London to study a Master’s degree in Music Technology.
World Class London Models Magazine: Please tell us about your modeling experience.
Most of my modeling experience comes from my years in Ecuador, I first started doing commercials for cellphone carriers, drinks, food chains, beauty products, etc... Then I had the chance to start doing runways and photoshoots for designers both local and international. I was invited to do photoshoots in Colombia as well.
World Class London Models Magazine: How were you discovered?
I was around 18 or 19 years old and I was hanging around in a mall waiting in a queue to buy an ice cream when a woman who owned a modeling agency approached to me and ask me if I wanted to work as a model. I never had any experience before so I told her I that I didn’t know how to do it and she told me that it didn’t matter, a few days latter she called me for an audition and I got the job.
World Class London Models Magazine: What made you decide to become a model?
