Kamil Nicalek was born in 1987 in Stalowa Wola, Poland. At the age of eight he moved with his family to New York City. After a dream to be a professional soccer player later ended with an injury, he started modelling instead. And very successfully! He started with campaigns for Abercrobmie & Fitch and ended up working with the biggest names in the fashion industry, such as Bruce Weber, Mike Ruiz and Hudson Wright.
