Beverly Hills, CA
Caucasian (but im a mutt)
What inspired you to get into this industry?
At the age of 13, i was 5'11 and awkwardly skinny. That being said, i was a perfect candidate for the modeling industry. I was discovered by a local model herself who pushed me right into the industry. At the age of 17, i made NYC my home and was modeling full time.
How long have you been modeling?
Just over 10 years
Who is your favorite model?
Miranda Kerr. Not only is she a consummate professional,a beautiful women inside and out, but she is also a wonderful wife and hard working mother. I love how just months after having her child, she is up and modeling in no time, and you couldn't even tell she had a baby! I love her attitude and style.I also like the fact that she stays so grounded after all these years in the modeling industry. That’s commendable.
Tell us something random about yourself.
I speak nearly four languages fluently. I lived in Thailand for 2 years modeling full time. While i was living there, a military coup occurred, causing a lot of fighting throughout the country, which created all airports to shut down for days, leaving me literally stuck. It was a scary, yet life changing experience. I was also a spokesmodel for AIDS awareness and traveled throughout India to raise awareness. On the weekends, i race Ferrari's with my better half. And i am so passionate about cooking and can cook up any type of international dish in no time!
What are you most proud of?
I am proud that i was able to help so many people in my life, just by speaking up, traveling and raising awareness about AIDS. It was a memorable experience that taught me so much in life. Im also proud of how much i have accomplished at such a young age, and i hope to accomplish much more, as well as help many more people in this World out.
I have a couple of runway shows coming up for fashion week, as well as shoots, but i am working on coming out with my own "Eat healthy like a model" Cookbook as well as work out tips (i am also a personal trainer).
When it's all said and done, what do you want to be remembered as?
I want to be remembered as a compassionate person who helped out many others in my life and someone who was actually able to make a difference in the World.
