1. How did you get into modeling?

I’ve never actually modeled before Brad, one day he reached out and offered me a shoot, I was really hesitant at first but decided to give it a try and had so much fun. Brad was a great photographer I loved it.


2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?

I don’t model that much considering, but lately I’ve been traveling a lot, I just got back from Cancun yesterday, last month I went to Europe for a week and a half. Otherwise writing, gym, and work mainly. Maybe some drinks and bar hopping here and there but nothing too spectacular. 


3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?

A few years ago I literally spontaneously hopped on a plane with a guy I had been dating for like, three weeks for a European vacation for three months. Needless to say it didn’t end well. If you really wanna see if you are compatible with someone go to an entirely new country with them. 



4. What do you love on Social Media? – What do you hate on Social Media?

I love social media provides connection and art. It’s a nice avenue for expression. I dislike the complete lack of authenticity. I try to be as honest as I can over social media, I feel like a lot of people aren’t and make people buy into the “look how great my life is” but it really isn’t. Just be real. 


5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!

I’ve been exploring style more in the past few years. I used to just do bargain stuff but now I try to dress a little nicer. I’m pretty casual, a classic vneck and some jeans. But sometimes I’m dressed out, I have a nice mesh polo I wear when I’m feeling bold and a pink polo that also I love. I love ASOS because I’m super short and they make clothes in my size that fit well, otherwise probably just H&M or Amazon prime has amazing specials. I love Versace but can’t afford it. My friend Eric created a custom scent that smells like heaven on earth, it’s the perfect scent. Also I like Versace’s brand as well as Rue21’s Eco. They don’t overpower when you wear them.



6. Describe yourself in 3 words:

Short, hedonistic, sarcastic.

7. Where are your roots – The best thing about/to do in your hometown?

Born in New Orleans. Grew up there then moved to Cali then Michigan then Chicago so I’ve been all over. Bourbon Street is quintessential and always a good time. My mom always jokes I inherited my love of partying from where I grew up.


8. Name one celebrity youd like to get naughty with!

Much like every human being does and should Nyle Dimarco is an obtusely beautiful human being.

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I’m pretty great at swimming and gymnastics. I also used to love hacking things like websites etc. I’m actually quite good but only use those powers for good, (or at least that’s what I tell people).


10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?

I have this odd fascination with unsolved disappearances and mysteries. There are so many forums dedicated to the missing and this year so many people have been identified and cases solved so I like to go over them and read more. I think it’s so interesting.
