HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I started modeling when I was in High school, it wasn't professionally, but I was helping out my friends that were getting into photography and all of that. It came to me then, that modeling wasn't only a hobby but a job as well, and most people think its easy, but it really isn't. You have to show emotions though your body and photos.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
There's a lot that excites me, I get excited when I get booked, when there's an actual theme to the shoot and I have to dress up and do my makeup according to the theme. What really excites me though, is being able to express my emotions through the photos! Its a challenge sometimes but that's what I LOVE about modeling.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
Not in modeling, I have done a few plays, theater arts but that's about it. I have a lot of friends as MUA's, photographers and etc though.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I pretty much would model in anything, but my favorite would be I guess an alternative look. I like to spice to anything I wear!!
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I don't think I have a least favorite to be honest, but if I had to choose, id probably say a bikini? Its a bit boring for me. But its still ok!
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
Art. I LOVE art. I have been loving art since I was a little girl. Drawing was my number one thing to do when I was little. Screw playing with barbie! haha, but seriously, my passion for art is off the roof.
And being able to express it on my body is the best.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I do! I am a photographer as well and I love it! Its so great to work with other models and me being behind the camera and seeing these models and artist do what I do! its awesome.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
OO, I LOVE music too and pretty much listen to everything but my top is Rock, and hip hop. REAL hip hop.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I like to kick it with my friends or at home, watching movies and eating. I love food, haha, but if not, I like to go out and meet new people, see what they are about. This world is amazing and you need to live life to the fullest, so I try to do the most I can in my life. Its why I'm here!
