Who are your top 3 artistic influences?

This is really hard because I am constantly evolving. When I started modeling it was definitely Alexander McQueen. Nowadays it would definitely be old master paintings, hentai, and the unbearable lightness of being.

What advice do you have for aspiring models?

Just do it. Put yourself out there - you need to be the change you want to see in the world and put the action out there. No one else is going to do it for you.
