Photo Credit: Photographer: Curtis Wood

How did you get started in modeling? What brought you to it?
I started doing random photo shoots when I was 16 when a friend told me I should get into modeling.. And once I turned 18 I wanted to be like my idol Betty Page!

Do you consider yourself: Pro, Semi Pro, Hobbyist, Amateur, Something Else?
Probably semi-pro I think there is always room for improvement. (:

How did you find Model Insider and what do you like best about it?
I found Model Insider through Curtis Wood. I like the chat room. (: ha, and I really like the forum board ‘cause you always learn something new.

What is your usual genre? Favorite genre?
PIN UP! Photo shoot's and hopefully start getting paid more. I wanna try new things so this coming year will be creative!

How do you find photographers to work with?
I usually just search for photographers in my area and add them as a friend. If they like what they see then they usually ask me when I would like to shoot. (:

Do you do your own styling and makeup? Do you work with a preferred MUA?
I do my own make-up and styling most of the time. There are sometime when I will have my cousin do my make up for me tho.

Where do you see yourself going in the next year, artistically and business wise?
I want to try new things and hopefully start getting more noticed in the public eye.

Do you shoot both in studio and on location and do you have a preference?
I have no preference. I am willing to try new things.

Do you travel?
If we can work things out. Then I am always willing to travel. (:

Anything else you'd like to tell Model Insiders about yourself?
Modeling is my drug. Its how I can express myself. I feel most alive when I'm getting that photo taken. I’ve been through some hard times and if I didn't have this passion for modeling I would probably be lost. I’d also be lost if I didn’t have my family, friends, and the Cache Valley Cartel supporting me all the way! So thanks to everyone who has supported me. It means a lot! Catch me soon. (:
