When did you start modeling?
I was scouted by few different scouts and agents, but I was only 16. I have no ideas what was modeling and what a model does that time. I was a geek in the school. All I know was my school stuffs. Never really thought about it.

Then after graduated university, September 2009, I came to Toronto for a vacation and met a stylist and a photographer they told me that I should try out modeling and be a model. I was on the way to Ford Models in Toronto office, The photographer told me to drop by my now mother agency, Elmer Olsen, first. One thing leads to another. In October 2009 I signed with them!

I just came back my very first season in Paris and Milan. I really enjoy my trip and I met some amazing talented people and I was so amazed by the city's.

Scored so far?
My very FIRST INTERNATIONAL SHOW was for Emporio Armani, then Giorgio Armani, Armani Collezioni, then follow by Alexander McQueen and I got the second last outfit!
Then I got booked for an exclusive show in Berlin for Diesel Black Label, fun show. In Paris, I did my first exclusive show for a label called BLAAK and I opened the show!

So far there is no campaign yet but I am working on it :P hopefully soon!
