Favorite modeling experience so far? Mitsubishi TV commercial because of what they asked me to do. My character was a Centaur (leading role) and I was using prosthetics. It was challenging and gave me the strong idea that acting is the next step. That was not the first TV commercial but was a game changer for me.
Currently, you’re obsessed with/about? Obsessed with helping others to take care of our planet, our ecosystem, our home. I’m doing the best I can to raise awareness! The way I see things, we all must look after each other.
