How did you start modeling?
I’ve been modeling since a while; I was scouted to join a model competition for Biotherm when I was still in school. After my school I started full time modeling and traveling.
What does your career do for you?
It has given me a lot of opportunities to explore cities, meet a lot of people and to do work that I really enjoy.
What’s your most memorable shoot?
In the desert in Dubai. It was the first time that I travelled to the Middle East. It was a really great experience and we made pictures that I really like.
What do you think MODELLIST-ID can do for the model community?
As a model you can get to know new cities very well and it is nice to share these experiences with each other. You can give each other good advice about the ins and outs and places to go to.
What’s your beauty regime?
I like to go to Bikram yoga when I have time and I try to get enough sleep.
What are your favorite hang out spots in the city you live in?
Since one year I live in Amsterdam. I still discover a lot of new places but I like to go to BoCinq, Lion Noir and Momo. On a sunny day I love to sit on the terrace at Van Zuylen.
What is your favorite city and where do you like to hang out there?
My favorite city is Paris. I can go on and on about places where I like to hang out there. Here I have 3 tips:
1. One of the most popular hotel/restaurants in Paris is ‘Hotel Costes’. It has a very special atmosphere, something you can only find in Paris.
2. I love to go to ‘Ralphs’ in Saint Germain, it’s really beautiful and they have good food.
3. Also ‘La Societe’ which is located on a very beautiful square in Saint Germain, just in front of the church. I like to go there for dinner on a summer evening.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Enjoy the opportunities that this job gives to you.
What are your plans for the future?
At the moment I study next to modeling.
I really like modeling and want to continue doing this. I also like to learn something next to my work. I don’t think too much about the far future, I try to get the most out of my time now.
I’m studying at the University of Amsterdam for the second year, where I follow economics and French. Learning the French language is also very useful for the clients I work with in France. Besides, I would love to live in France the future…
