How long have you been modeling and is it something you always wanted to pursue?
I have been modeling for a little under two years now. It was never something I had planned for myself to be perusing but more of something that I fell into. Now that I’m here, I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.:)
Whats been your most memorable experience thus far as a model?
I would have to say getting to travel. I have had the pleasure of visiting London, Australia, Dominican Republic and of course traveling in the states for work. I feel honored that I get to meet new people, network and work all while getting to travel around the world.
Growing up, who was your role model?
My dad was, is, and always will be my role model. The strongest, most important person in my life.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love to work out, go to the beach, watch movies.. Anything that is an escape from my busy day to day.
What are your favorite clothing lines?
I love to follow fashion; my favorite designers at the moment are Alexander Wang, Helmut Lang, and Givenchy. If I’m not Dream shopping on style.com or making an occasional splurge with these designers, I love to find timeless classic clothes at all the same stores every other woman loves to shop. Black, nude and white are all part of my standard uniform
Do you do much traveling? If so where do you like most?
YES! Anywhere tropical, although, to me it’s not so much where I am, but more who I’m with. I enjoy going anywhere new as long as I have people with me who are down for anything. My friends and I always travel in a “judgement-free zone”
What kind of music do you listen to?
Anything I can sing along to and connect with. I think thats the most important thing in music, no matter the genre, is to create something that everyone can relate to. I love house music to dance to, but there’s nothing like soulful melodies and beats. and I absolutely love to sing.
Whats your focus in 2012?
Acting, and of course more modeling. I am building my beauty port and focusing on acting classes.
Any upcoming projects?
Yes! Some commercials, a few magazine appearances… Stay tuned
