First off I feel I should tell anybody that may want to offer me anything that I cannot accept jobs at the moment unless it is a small shoot in my area. I have been dealing with a bad back injury for the last year but that hopefully will be resolved in the next few months. When I am healed I would love to continue working as a model. I have been out due to multiple injuries for the past two years so I will be rusty but it wont be to hard to get back into things.
My main thing is runway. I am a true runway model. I also do shoots and enjoy them as well and would really like to improve my photo-movement and advance further in modeling. I am hoping to break away from my small mother agency and get into a much bigger one where I can really grow as a model.
The beginning - I was casted by Barbizon of Phoenix to join their school and train to be a model. They paid my tuition and put me through modeling 101 and on so to speak. I was taught everything about modeling on my first day and got it down packed the same day. Two weeks later I was helping the agency teach other students that were in my class how to do runway. This made for quicker teaching and more walking. I then ended up being a runway teacher for the agency and helped choreograph shows. The two of the guys that I taught and a couple of the girls were hand selected at IMTA in NY by runway choreographer Curtis Davis to be in one of his runway shows.
Prior to getting hurt I was selected by a top scout for IMTA in New York where I won a couple of awards and received several call backs. Most notably from Major Model Management in Milan. Sadly however before I went to NY I blew out my ankle and could only compete in the high fashion runway and ended up not signing due to the injury.
Photo-shoots - I have only been in to shoots. With that being said it is my weak area but I would love to make it a strength comparable to my runway.
