I never give up on my dreams, and I'm always there to help the people that I love when they need someone.
Pedro, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I believe the real mean of happiness is freedom and that's why I like to travel and have new experiences. That's what makes me feel free and it certainly is my great passion. I started when I was 17, because of my mom's influence.
Who is your inspiration in life Pedro? How do you keep inspired?
Steve Jobs is one of my inspirations in life. He showed to us that our great power is the willpower and if you believe in yourself, you can change the world. I did tattoos on my body that reminds me of my values and who I am, that's what keeps me inspired.
We all make mistakes Pedro; 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.
I don't remember having problems with other people in my job. I made mistakes with myself, but I worry a lot about not failing others.
Pedro, 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?
A good model needs to be versatile to give what customer needs, but there is something that everyone likes, which is to be a friendly person. They like to work with people like that.
Please tell us, Pedro, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Sometimes I need to choose between 2 different castings, so I have to analyse the variables, like chances of being chosen-payment-campaign type (lookbook, shooting, parade)
Pedro, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
In my country, it is not common for a person to speak English, which was a differential for me to be chosen by international brands for some campaigns. Communication is everything.
Pedro, 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?
It's easy. 2013 I parade for Nike, in a world cup privet event. Four days with a great team, I made friends and learned a lot.
Pedro, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Once I was shooting for a magazine, close to the beach, when I had the brilliant idea of getting on the water wearing a suit. It was very uncomfortable, but the photos were great.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Do not expect to be seen. Be attitude and be a nice person. That's what makes a great model.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yeah! I'm looking for agencies from other countries to work with me. USA, Mexico, Asia, Europe, etc... I'm interested in working abroad.
