About Me and My Modeling Philosophy
I am a teacher and competitive figure athlete. I enjoy balancing the discipline and structure of the bodybuilding lifestyle with the rest of my life. I began modeling as a way to puncuate a competition preparation period. I quickly became enamoured with the process of preparing for a doing a shoot. It requires one to: do research, project, get into another space, focus, and tell a story. For me, modeling is not a 'means to an end' (Again, I am a full-time middle school teacher). It is a creative outlet.
Previously, I primarily did fitness oriented modeling. however, I have been getting asked to do more glamour and fashion assignments, which I really enjoy, as well. I can work in the controlled chaos of a studio and adapt to the unpredictability of a location shoot. I will work with photographers of all experience levels if the images produced are smart, multi-demensional, and make a strong statement about that artists versatitility and sensibilities. In other words, if your primary images portray women as ornaments, are exploitive or lewd, or of the 'booty genre'--I am not interested. I can bring my own ideas or assist you in bringing yours to fruition.
Hair and Make-Up
I provide my own styling for hair, make-up and clothing. If a hair stylist is hired, they must be familiar and can work with natural African-American hair. I am punctual and prepared. In return, I expect the same consideration and professionalism. This includes, but is not limited to an in-person or phone conversation discussing shoot: expectations, location, theme, compensation (when applicable), and deliverables.
I look forward to some innovative partnerships.
In addition to competiting and teaching, I am a developing fitness writer.
