What experiences do you have in modeling?:  I’ve done some runway and catalogs for a t-shirt line named “Royal Cache“.  Also some works for photographers.

What do you enjoy most about modeling?: I really enjoy portraying myself in front of the camera and also show off the designer’s clothes. I never thought about modeling after I moved to NYC when my friend, who is a photographer, needed a male model for one of his projects; so he asked me to take some shots of me and since that moment this is what I’m doing.

Highlight of your modeling experience?: That would be when I won a modeling competition held in Indonesia. It was very nice experience in my life.

Lowlight?: I don’t have anything on mind. I think there is no challenge for a diverse model because when you come from a diverse background, you have more markets open to work because of your look.

How do you keep fit?: Thank God I don’t have to work out a lot. I go to the gym 2 or 3 times in a week and also keeping an eye on what I eat.
