GBP 150/ h
I was born and raised in Argentina (passionate, outgoing, eloquent people!). I always loved dancing, acting, and striking poses for photos.
When I was a teen, two things were going on and separated me from following my dream: I was too good at maths, and I was too different from the standards of those times’ models.
I developed a successful career in Market Research. My profession took me from Buenos Aires to London, and from working as an executive for top brands, to have my blooming agency. During these two decades, I became an expert in brands, product image, and in communicating emotions to people.
Now (luckily) 2 things are happening and put me back in the path of what I love: I have learned to like myself the way I am. And beauty is taking the most varied forms, styles and ages.
Now, about to turn 50, I am a model. I use my expressive personality to communicate emotions, to connect with humans, and to inspire other people.
