What did you want to be growing up?

I don’t have tickets for anything, but it would be cool to go to a music festival next year.
5 top favourite songs

Brand you would like to model for?
Best / hilarious / curious modelling experience ever
My first shoot was in London with GQ two days after signing with my agency, a couple of days after that I was shooting Italian Vogue in Kent, and then I went straight to Paris to shoot Vogue Hommes! So travelling is one of the best things so far. I also shot an Editorial and I had to do moves like the Matrix, that was pretty funny
