Half German, half Portuguese, born and raised in the Algarve, South of Portugal. In my early teens I started modeling after winning Portugal Elite Model Look contest. At that time, the only thing I really wanted to do was spend time with friends, taking photos and learning how to surf…my first modeling paycheck was all spent on a custom made surfboard, wetsuit, clothes and traveling…I studied Art in high school but later went on to taking several technical courses and two degrees, one in Hospitality and another in Human Resource Management. Because I love creating…I had to add a Cooking course to my resume too…

Welcome to my world, a place were I can combine all of my interests, channel creativity, share thoughts, passions and personal perspectives and hopefully inspire you on a daily basis through lifestyle, Photography, Editorial Content and everything else that comes into my La-La mind.
