Name: Alexandre Ribeiro Xavier Cunha
Date of birth: 09/06/1987
How did you start modeling? I was invited a couple of times on the streets and after two model girls invited me, in different occasions, in the same line bus in my city, I found that too much coincidence. Then I went there to check it out.

Any superstitions? No. I trust in god that is inside each one of us.
