Hello to all! Thanks for stopping by to check out my portfolio. I am interested in fashion, promotional and commercial work (print and/ or television), as well as hosting and emcee work. I have runway and extensive promotional and print experience. I am currently working in both North Carolina (and surrounding states) as well as in Las Vegas, NV. Please contact me via email (email@example.com) or this site if you would like to work together.
I am professional, punctual, and do my best at every shoot or event to give the client all that I can. I believe that nothing is worth doing unless you are going to give 110%. I apply this theory not only to modeling but to life in general. I have a very determined and competitive spirit.
Feel free to ask for references, I can provide them ASAP. You can also read my tags below and see the comments from a few people with whom I have worked in the past. Look forward to working with some of you in the future!
