Hometown: Saint-Petersburg, Russia
What does ‘happiness’ mean to you? Happiness is when you wake up and realize that you are in demand, when you have a lot of work, when you are busy and your work makes you happy. All the closest people around me are healthy, and of course, when you have a money to buy a sweater from Dior :)
Do you have any fears? I have a lot of fears! :D Although people who know me, never believe it :) After shooting with a great photographer Nil Hoppenot, I realized that I have a fear of heights, as the first shot took place on the roof of a six floor building. And I’m afraid of the crazy rides like the roller coaster, but I can never resist the chance to try something new in order to kill all the fear in myself. In general, for Russian people it is unusual to be afraid of something, it’s better to be the one who makes people fear you. :))
What would you like to do with your life? This is a difficult question, definitely no easy way out, so I will try to answer :) I began to think about this question more recently, and only now realized that modeling is the first step in my career, which helps me to realize who I really want to to become in my life. I will not reveal all the secrets for now, but I can make a hint that maybe soon you’ll be reading a book or articles by very talented writer Dima Dionesov :)
the booker says
If I needed to describe Dima in one word it would be determination. Dima is always happy to work which is one of the biggest weapons in this industry. He loves to meet and be around people. I’m sure that the strength of his character and his interesting face will get him very far.
