How did you get into modelling and how old were you when you started?

I got into modelling about 3 years ago when I was about 22 years old. I was street scouted in Los Angeles at my friends music show. It was a late start into the career, as a lot of people start in their teens, but I would say it was for the better.

What has been your favourite shoot to date?

There definitely has not just been one shoot that has been my favourite! I’ve modelled for such a great mixture of clients. I love meeting and connecting wth new people. When I go our of the country, it is just such a different experience than modelling at home.

If you were not modelling, what do you think you would be doing?

Living off the land and gardening in Northern California.Where were you born?

I grew up in Chicago and have lived in California now for almost 9 years. I loved growing up in Chicago and making my way to the west coast. I wasn’t surrounded by Hollywood or fame growing up in Chicago which really made me the person I am today!

Do you have a favourite Beauty product you could recommend?

Hyaluronic Sea Serum by OSEA – anything really by OSEA! It’s the only brand I really user unless I make the product myself. I try to stay all natural with the products I use but it can be hard when modelling and others aren’t in the same boat yet!
