TheSouthSider: When and how did you start modeling?
Emilio Alix: I started by chance in 2003. I was dancing in a club and my manager Picky Courtois from Civiles Management saw me and told me about being a model. I said to him that i was going to think about it. Then, I didn’t called him. I had too many things to do. And I had to focus on my studies. Four months later, when I've finished the University, I found his card, and I decided to call him. Two hours later I was at the agency, and the day after I was doing a Levi's casting campaign. I've got the job. Since that moment I still working in the fashion business.

I remembered being at home when I was a child, listened to the music that he played. In every barbecue or birthday there is always good music playing! It's our sweet energy transmitter.
