State / Region
I am 26 years old, and I live in Japan. I have an outgoing personality, and I am not shy at all. I am passionate, and my creativity flows when I am given freedom to express myself. I love to socialize, to meet new people, and to experience new things. Life is an adventure for me, and it should be lived to the fullest, with a rebel spirit, thirsty for new things. That is what I can offer, a person willing to do what it takes in order to express a creative project.
Daniel, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Model?
I want to make a positive impact in the world doing what I love to do. As a model, I think you are in the spotlight and can inspire people at the same time to believe in their beauty and follow their dreams.
Who is your inspiration in life, Daniel? How do you stay inspired as a Model?
My mom, she is is a beautiful human being, not only inside but outside as well. She used to model too.
We all make mistakes, Daniel; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
Maybe my biggest mistake, and probably the mistake of almost everyone is to lose opportunities by do not trust enough in oneself and do not believe in their capacities.
Daniel, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
Funny, open-minded, and kind.
Please tell us, Daniel, how do you prioritize work, social life, friends, and family?
Family first, then friends. I can count the real ones with the fingers of my hand. Then work, and last, social life, although I believe the last two can be prioritized equally as being social can bring many chances to do new things in your career and your life.
Daniel, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
Clients to give more importance to personality than looks can get better results in projects as a pretty face is not everything in this industry. Beauty vanishes someday, but who you are staying forever with you. I have had success with those who take risks and try new things.
Daniel, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.
I appeared on the Japanese tv a couple of years ago, in a show where I was the main character. That was a great experience as I believe many people saw my face. Although I am not famous yet, and one show is not enough...Haha!
Daniel, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
When I organized an intimate concert where I invited my friends and family, I think they saw for the first time what I was capable of doing.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Stay healthy, take advantage of your flaws instead of letting them take advantage of you, and believe in yourself ALWAYS.
