About MeI am typically casted between the ages of 18 and 26.
My goals are to reach people - to move people with my work. I would like to increase my income through modeling and showing the world that it is OK to be intelligent, beautiful and fantastic - "It is our light, not our darkness that we are afraid of...by letting our own light shine we unconsciously give others permission to do the same." (Nelson Mandala in his inaugural speech, quoting Marianne Williamson)
I would love to increase my modeling exposure, and one day have my own clothing line, books, courses, and film production studio. I like to be a part of things that help people on a global scale, and can see myself being a Goodwill Ambassador with the United Nations. I like to be a creative, versatile person - some people call me a "chameleon" because I can appear many different ways. I have a very open face and look that can appear as european, asian, spanish etc. My naturally quite light skin contributes to the broad range of looks I can achieve with/without a tan and my very long hair is naturally wavy but looks great in big curls or straight. My style is classy, and I am interested in paid professional runway, catalogue work, high fashion, and beauty shoots. Extremely limited TFCD for the right photographer / team.
Runway shows: KDON (Project Runway's Kim), Wear Else (www.wearelse.com) featuring Michael Kors, Millie, and a dozen others. Second Skin, L'Space, Nurture Organic Wear, Lotus Wear, Bootlegger, Ricki's, Suzy Shier, Mandeez and Northern Reflections. I have modeled makeup for MAC cosmetics and hair for The Cutting Room for charity shows.
Recent in Print: Look for my 9 page spread in Aislewalk Magazine (www.aislewalk.com) in December featuring 2010 lines for Vera Wang, Amsale and other fabulous high end designers. Oct/Nov Cover LOVE Magazine, and 5 page feature. 2009/2010 Nurture Organic Wear campaign. Thanks to Alida's Gown (hand made silk couture) for the lovely photo shoot.
My fiancee will come with me to all first shoots. I am very professional: I do what I say I will do, and show up on time or early, ready to work. I like a fun working environment and to try new things. I am flexible, and have no fears (fine with heights, snakes, etc). I treat all my clients work as if it were my own business and often present very helpful ideas.
