Tell us about your style. What is it and how has it come to be?
My clothing style has developed through the years and is largely inspirers by post-hardcore and rock music. As the years have passed I’ve found my own style. I often take inspiration from people that dress similarly to me. But I’ll never leave home without a leather jacket and most often I dress in black.
What is your favourite item of clothing that you couldn't live without?
My favourite piece of clothing is a leather jacket. A leather jacket is fitting for every occasion. Currently I own 12 leather jackets!

Tell us about your favourite hobbies.
Music, concerts, tattoos, clothing, series and movies, video games, interior design.
I mostly listen to Metalcore / Post Hardcore but I also like singer-songwriter and acoustic music. My mood often determines what music I enjoy listening to in the moment.
In terms of movies and series, I like a lot of different genres! I prefer action and horror, but I also enjoy historical pieces as I have a really big interest in history.
Have they influenced your style at all?
Yes all these things impact my style and choice of clothing on a daily basis.
A lot of my style developed when I was a teenager and started listening to Post Hardcore, Emo and heavier music. I often looked at and took inspiration from different band members and musicians - how they dressed, what tattoos and piercings they had, etc. And from there my style has developed to what it is today!
Who are your style icons/influences?
Who’s your favourite band/artist at the moment?
What was the best part of 2023 so far?
Spending time with my amazing girlfriend. Every moment I spend with her has been very fun, beautiful and warm. I think it’s important to value and enjoy every moment you have with your partner to show your appreciation for them. And that’s something my girlfriend and I focus a lot on. Since we are both really interested in being in front of the camera, we’ve had our first photoshoot together - we ended up with a lot of beautiful and amazing photos.
Do you have a motto for life?
A few years ago I decided to say "yes" to everything that made me uncomfortable and unsure. That could be saying "yes" to lecturing for a large group of people, or modelling on a big stage for many photographers at the same time. I like to challenge myself in this way and it really helped me develop as a person.
