1. Where you are from?
As a military brat I moved around a lot, but my dearest friends and the place where I did the most of my growing up is Oregon- so I consider that my place of origin.
2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
I love poetry! Reading it, speaking it, and sharing my favorite finds through Instagram. It makes me so happy whenever someone tells me that a poem I found helped them or inspired them. I also enjoy bar class, yoga, singing, hanging out with my neighbors and of course love the company of all furry children (dogs/cats)!
3. Favorite clients from the biz?
That’s a tough one! I have been modeling for over a decade and I have had the opportunity to work with so many great clients. Without mentioning all the wonderful production teams and photographers I have worked with. I would definitely have to mention Hania by Anya Cole, Loro Piana, Nikon/Dixie Dixon, Gabriel & Co Jewelry, Maybelline and Zac Posen as a few of my favorites.
4. Dreams/goals any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
I would love to work with any brand that considers quality, care, dependability, attention to detail, authenticity and/or creativity as part of its core values.
5. Career highlights?
Wow there are so many! For print it has to be many of the ones I have already mentioned above but others include Kohls, Pella, Uniqlo, DHC, Crown Royal. Fit modeling has been another part of modeling that I have had the pleasure to part take in. Fitting for brands like Zac Posen, Minnie Rose and Yeon have been such a pleasure and I hope to continue doing more of it!
6. How did you get into modeling ?
I was actually scouted as a model after a middle school band rehearsal by Tia Reagan. I did my first several photoshoots and bookings through her and I credit her and photographer Tanja Lippert, for getting me started and giving me a good mindset for the business.
