1. How did you get into modeling?
I began modeling as a way to get head shots for my acting career. I worked with a photographer who invited me to a community event and I really enjoyed it. So, I started doing small collaborations to get involved in the community and just grew from there!
2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?
Acting/modeling takes up a majority of my time. However, I also work full-time as an photographer, mainly working with infants and toddlers. But, I have also photographed for companies and bands, like Quicken Loans and the Grammy-nominated S.W.V.
3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?
The strangest thing I’ve ever done was biting a hole in a beach-ball at college football game. I absolutely knew it was a unusual thing to do. I just did it to see the reactions of the people around me, and I was not disappointed by the results.
4. What do you love on Social Media? – What do you hate on Social Media?
I love that social media can be an outlet to put yourself out there. You can simultaneously share your artwork, rant about a rough day, and inspire others to keep their heads up. I also appreciate that everyone has the capability of starting social media, meaning there are more and more people posting their work every day. That is incredible.
One downside of social media would be the impact on self esteem, people tend to use social media to compare themselves to others. I believe your value is not measured by the amount of followers on a page or likes on a post. It is measured by how you view yourself and impact the world around you.
5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!
I love clothing that represents the person wearing it. For example, I am a huge movie-buff, so I am constantly wearing shirts from my favorite movies. Seeing people express themselves through any outlet really makes my day. My favorite brands are OddFuture, Vans, and Calvin Klein.
6. Describe yourself in 3 words:
Passionate, determined, and optimistic.
7. Where are your roots – The best thing about/to do in your hometown?
My roots are firmly planted in Howell, Michigan, where I was born and raised. I could often be found getting coffee at the Uptown Coffee House, playing instruments at Schaffer’s House of Music, or playing soccer near Thompson Lake.
8. Name one celebrity youd like to get naughty with!
Definitely Emma Watson. The way she conducts herself and uses her publicity to promote causes, like equality and environmentalism, is insanely attractive.
9. Do you have any special Talents?
I can play seven instruments, juggle, complete a Rubix cube, I am a particularly fast learner, and I like to consider myself very versatile on set. For example, I recently wrapped production on a feature-length film where I not only acted, but also was the 1st Assistant Camera and behind the scenes photographer.
10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?
Oof, that is a loaded question. The most entertaining thing I’ve seen online recently is an episode of Hot Ones with Shia Labeouf.
