Hello. Welcome to Desnudo Magazine Michael! How old are you, where are you from?
Hey guys! Thank you for having me! I’m 29 and I’m from Venezuela.
What is your heritage/ethnic background?
I’m of mixed heritage, but mainly from Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago, Dominican Republic, Germany, Spain, Chinese, and Lebanon.
How did you get into modeling?
I was working in a mall and a guy asked me if I wanted to do a shoot and I said yes, and havent stopped since then.
What is your favorite thing about your career?
Well, now I’m a professional actor and what I enjoy the most is forgetting about myself and the things I normally carry around and being able to be in the present moment through play.
What are you looking forward to in the coming months?
Mental health break, being able to connect with the people I care the most, and a lot of acting jobs.
What was it like shooting with David Suarez?
I’ve been a follower of his work for so long! I’m so grateful for this opportunity and I found him very warm and respectful.
I would work with him again.
What are your thoughts on nudity
Nudity is delicate, sometimes we need the mysticism that implies wearing specific clothes, but at the same time being naked is being free, and it should be seen as normal
Have you ever had a nickname? What is it?
Haha a lot. TOMATON, it means: BIG tomato.
What do you wish you knew more about?
Finances and investments.
In the evening, would you rather play a game, visit a relative, watch a movie, or read?
What takes up too much of your time?
Cooking! I’m to meticulous and I waste so much time preparing meals.
