Occupation? I currently work for merchant service provider, specifically in the mobile division. As a part of my job I also travel to various trade shows to promote our company, the services offered, and acquire new accounts. In addition to this I am also a full time student in pursuit of a degree in Business Administration. These two combined keep me busy.

 

Where are you originally from? Well I was born in Fontana, CA, raised primarily in Palm Springs Ca, but also spent a few years in a small Arizona town known as Kingman.

 

What is your nationality? I would be considered a mutt. I am a combination of German, English, Irish, Mexican, and Native American.

0573

What are your measurements? 33, 25, 34

Give us 5 words that you think best describe you? Adventurous, Personable, Goal-oriented, Driven, Witty

 

Your Astrological sign here: Aquarius

How would you describe your personality in that regard?  While I do not routinely check my horoscope I would say that the Aquarian description matches my personality pretty spot on. If I was walking down a road and there was a fork, I would make my own path rather than choose between the two already traveled. I guess one could say I enjoy my freedom and am not afraid of change because I know it’s inevitable. In terms of other people I surround myself with people that I know and am conformable with but that’s not to say that I won’t make a new friend if the opportunity presents itself. I know for a fact that I am stubborn (anyone I know can attest to that) and I tend come off sarcastic without realizing it sometimes. Overall I can see why when I tell people I am an Aquarius they say “oh yeah I can definitely see that”

 

What would you say is your best asset? In my opinion my best asset would be that I take direction easily and if we are talking physical asset I’d say my eyes, and ability to look directly at a camera

 

What do others compliment you on the most? I receive compliments most on my eyes, and oddly enough my nose, I have been told that I have an “amazing look”.

 

How did you get started in modeling?  I just started modeling this year. I knew a photographer and after seeing his work began asking questions about potentially doing a shoot. I eventually got him to agree and after my first experience I was hooked.

Are you signed with an agency? Not at this time.

 

What do you enjoy most about modeling?  I like the fact that I am creating with just myself. I really like being in front of the camera, it’s like improve acting. The best part is looking at the shots every time I’m blown away think to “wow that’s me!”

 

What is the funniest thing to happen to you on a shoot? I nearly fell over at one of my shoots and as I was falling /trying to regain my balance I made this owl like sound. The remainder of the shoot the photographer kept mimicking the sound I made and I couldn’t help but laugh.

 

What are the top three things you like to shoot? I like to shoot implied nude at beach locations, lingerie, and black and white. I’d like to start doing more artistic shoot.

Do you enjoy the constant attention and adoration that comes with being a glamour model? It’s nice to know that others appreciate mine and the work of my photographers.

 

Where do you want your career to be in two years? In two years I hope to gain more experience by continuing to do shoots with new photographers. I feel that this is an industry that one learns by experience and I hope to take from other models, and photographers for future endeavors

What are some of your hidden talents other than modeling?  Some of my other talents include: singing, rock climbing, being a professional shopaholic, and baking.

 

Take us through your getting ready to model routine? Well to start I first ask my photographer a million questions regarding what’s expected for wardrobe. On the day of I wake up early, go for a run to get any excess jitters out, shower, apply teeth whitening strips, turn on my get pumped music, apply make up as needed, do my hair as needed, double check my I have all necessary items, eat a light breakfast, and leave with adequate time to get to the destination.

 

What is the best info you can give a new model?  Ask question about what is expected, or what your photographer is looking for. Find and study similar looks.

 

As a model, what would you say has been your biggest obstacle? My biggest obstacle is remembering to pay attention to my body movements and my face at the same time. It is a constant work in progress.

 

If you had to walk away from modeling today, what memory would you take from it? It would be hard to take just one but I would definitely remember the first photographer I worked with and how much I learned from him, and the other would be how supportive my mother was when she found out I began modeling.

 

If you had to walk away, what would you like to be remembered most for? Hopefully for my awesome pictures!!
