"I am a single parent (male/father) and I started modeling as a result of unemployment..."
Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.
Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in modelling as a career?
I am a single parent (male/father) and I started modeling as a result of unemployment due to the lack of availability to work a regular 9-5 and commit to school holidays. Turned a negative situation into a very positive thing.
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
I don't have any modeling education. I learn on the fly with each and every job.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
Unique character combined with at least a decent look. Charisma and self esteem and the ability to show emotions through the eyes.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
I would like to work for one of the top designers in men's clothing.
What do you know about the advertising industry?
I mainly work in the advertising modeling field do to my characteristic looks and ability to show diversity.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I come from the Canary Islands. I was raised to be open minded, friendly and communicative. I am very laid back and patient as it is part of our lifestyle. I am eager to try new things and experiment, therefore I am very open to my clients' requirements, which is a characteristic they embrace and appreciate a lot.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
I am very conscious about my food. I avoid eating pork and deep fried. Raw food and fruits are a main part of my diet. I consume limited amount of dairy products. I exercise 4 times a week either playing basketball or at the gym.
What is your dream role as a model?
I would love to be he ambassador for single parent models and show it is possible to turn a tough life and situation around with determination, stamina and positive thinking. There are not many mail single parents who manage to have a successful career after getting back their children from child abduction and losing their jobs in order to take on a new role as a single father in full time.
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
I don't do nude photography. Other than that, my limitations are subject to my duties and responsibility as a father.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
I am ready to travel and work full-time now that my son is getting older and more independent.
