I think what makes me unique is that I love telling stories and I do tell stories in every single work I do, I love giving my work humanity which is what the world needs now, as far as my personal life I am 100% a movie watcher I could spend a day just watching movies, I love martial arts, working out and swimming. I like to hang out with my friends, but I am more of a chilling plans guy I like to go to my friend's house and have a good time.

Leo, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?

My passion is Acting, I want to be a professional actor, especially in movies I think movies have a great way to tell stories within a certain amount of time and thanks to my passion for acting I fell in love with modelling, as I said I think the model and the photographer have the same relationship as the actor does with the director, they both have their styles but the actor and model have to adapt and combine their styles in order to get the best final product there could be, and learn from each other that made me love modelling.

Who is your inspiration in life Leo? How do you keep inspired?

My biggest inspiration in life is Emma Stone because she was 15 when she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream as an actress and even when a lot of people told her that se would not make it, she did and not only that she is now an oscar winning actress and a beautiful person which is what really matters. I keep myself inspired with my passion, and I know that when you do what you love, and you work hard to get the outcome you expect, no matter the odds you will see your dreams come true because you made them real.

We all make mistakes Leo; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.

there was one time when I had to work with another model, and I did not like her, so I was so blind at the time because I did not want to work with her so instead of doing my best and talk to her to do the best job as possible, the camera knew that I did not like her and it turned out awful, so I wish I would have been a more kind person and do my best.

Leo, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?

well first of all you need to have an order if you commit to something you have to give your 100%, it does not matter if you now have a job that you like more or a more fun job, what matters is that you gave your word to that one job, and once you are done with it you can choose another one, that goes for everything in life.

Please tell us, Leo, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?

I had this one day that I had to shoot a short film, and I had a photoshoot too, but I did not notice they were both at the same time so I talked to them both and I figured it out, and it turned out great because I had the photoshoot on the set of the shortfilm, so it was a lot of fun.

Leo, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

one time there was a photographer assistant that was telling him bad things about his work, and I talked to the photographer, and I told him he did not need people like that around him, so he hired a new assistant, and he had so much more confidence taking pictures because he was himself and that photo shoot went a lot better.

Leo, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?

I think my biggest accomplishment is when I started receiving more and more offers because photographers wanted to work with me and that is something that made me so so happy.

Leo, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

I think with the same photographer I made earlier because he was new and he gave me so much freedom and I loved that because I was creating a story.

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?

Eat healthily, work out, quit all kinds of addictions and really be disciplined about it because it is a long way but with discipline and love for it you will make it happen.

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?

yes I would love to collaborate with Cameron Dallas he is my model inspiration I admire him the most, and as for brands I would love to collaborate with Calvin Klein.
