Model Mateus Verdelho, born December 2, 1983, in Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, is Brazilian model.
When Verdelho turned 18, he moved to a much bigger city — São Paulo, where he was in college and also worked in an advertisement agency in that time.
A hardworking and dedicated man, he endured a hectic schedule, balancing school while also working as a model to make ends meet. At the end, he was not happy with the situation and he left school, travelled abroad and established himself as a male model.
Mateus is known for his mega-tattoos and piercing (although he hasn’t always had that look) and he’s managed to create a huge porfolio with work for “Terra The Boy”, “Abercrombie & Fitch”, “Carmin”, “Havainas”, “Penguim”, “Yatchsman”, “Dazed & Confused” and “Numero Hommes” among many others.
For him, the best thing about modeling is to be able to travel around the world and possibility that you can learn by yourself the culture, the language of such unique lifestyles.
Verdelho is into extreme sports, specially skating and skateboarding and he spends most of his time with his family, girlfriend and buddies. He likes to go to unusual places, eat healthy, and go to the beach. Now living in Paris (as of 2011), his goals are to be able to help his family and to find the real balance in life: body, mind and spirit.
