The 21-year-old actor, model and fitness enthusiast beat 34 other distinctively handsome men from around the world to win his country's first Mister International. Apart from the title, he was also awarded Best in Formal Wear.

The new Mister International hails from the province of Espaillat and studies international business. He is fascinated by the world of cinema and aspires to be recognized as a leading actor in movies and television one day. In addition, he also wants to become the most sought-after event presenter that he can be.
