Nickname: The Charming Boxer. I used to do kickboxing and girls would always come up to my coach and ask my number, so they called me the charming boxer.
How were you scouted: I did an internship in Suriname and a local designer asked me to model for him. With the photos from that I signed with Max-Models in the Netherlands.
What’s your best feature: My eyes, blue shirts turn them blue and green shirts turn them green.
Favorite grooming product: My barber’s razorblade, if you miss, you lose an ear or a moustache but it’s just so much fun to shave with it.
Hobbies: I watch Boondocks, its bad I know, but it’s just so freaking funny.
Fitness Regime: Not a lot, just eat healthy.
Favorite Movie: Dumb and Dumber, funniest movie ever hands down!

Do you have any Guilty Pleasures?: Peanut butter, peanut butter with banana slices, peanut butter in a protein shake, peanut butter with tabasco and peanut butter with any other hot sauce.
What is your biggest fear? To lose my brother, he’s probably the only one in the world who knows exactly what’s going on in my head.
What is your dream place to visit? Tokyo…and of course New York
If you were not modeling, what would you be doing? Probably be a business consultant by day and train kickboxing by night.
If you got to relive one day in your modeling career it would be…: The Armani casting in Milan, when that gate opened a few hundred male models stormed inside. It was like a rugby match.
If you could be on the cover of any magazine, it would be: Vogue US
What’s the funniest thing that has happened to you on a shoot? I was doing a swimwear shoot in the ocean with a beautiful girl in my arms. All of the sudden her expression changed and she looked pressured. I said: “are you ok?” And she was like: “yeah I’m peeing”. So when we went out of the water I climbed onto the boat first and paused while I was still in the water. She asked me: “what are you doing?” I said: “I’m peeing”. She wasn’t amused. She even started screaming when I told her that it was only fair that I pee on her as well!
What’s your favorite fashion city and why? New York, endless possibilities
Who are your idols?: The Victoria’s Secret Angels, I think they take modelling to a level where male models still have to take it.
What was the last dream you remember? Becoming a world champion

How much money would you need to shave your hair off? Depends, are we talking bald or full Brazilian here?
