Southern Belle from Little L.A. (lower Alabama) who moved to big L.A. (Los Angeles) a little over 3 months ago... My first glimpse into the entertainment/modeling industry was when I was crowned Miss Alabama Teen USA in 2007. The decision to compete propelled me into a world I could have only imagined. I grew up a tomboy, playing softball and riding horses. I have competed in equestrian competitions since I was 5 years old! I absolutely love meeting and talking with people and especially like public speaking! There is a certain message of morality and system of values that I hope to introduce into this industry. I hope to be successful in television (specifically non-scripted or scripted, opinion-based). Staying true to myself and maintaining a humble personality is my constant goal. TV, I hope, will be a medium through which I can encourage young people with my story and journey. Modeling has been a part of the industry that I go back and forth between. I love creative projects that allow my to take on a character or interact with a lifestyle scene...For instance, Ralph Lauren ads inspire me to become a model. On the other hand...some aspect of modeling are discouraging (for example the extreme emphasis on being bone thin, etc). I am extremely fit and eat healthy most of the time but I also like to splurge a little, cook without feeling guilty, and enjoy life through food. I've often thought of hosting my own cooking show someday! Anyway, I love promo modeling, lifestyle shoots, and am interested also in catalog and commercial. I am in desperate need for commercial headshots since I am so new to the area and need to update my portfolio. If anyone would be interested in working with me for Time for Print or compensation jobs please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I do not do nudes or highly suggestive/sexual content. Please only contact if you are professional, not creepy, and talented. Thank you!
