I grew up in Minnesota and my background decent is Swedish, Norwegian and German.
I started modeling at 8 years old in Minneapolis doing several photoshoots up to the age of 12.
At age 13, I attended the Elite modeling school in Minneapolis. I learned: makeup/hair/video and runway instruction.
I was in the Miss National Pre-teen pageant at age 13 in Minneapolis.
At age 16, I worked as a runway model for Wella Hair Corp. in Las Vegas.
At 16 years old, I was chosen as one of twelve out of 30,000 entries in the TEEN Magazine Model Search Contest.
I travelled to L.A. for the photoshoots with makeup done by Maybelline. I stayed at the Lowes hotel in Santa Monica and I was escorted around the city for siteseeing, fun and photoshoots. I appeared in several magazine issues, local newspapers and worked with choreographers for our final night of the contest including runway and interviews on stage.
We were able to meet the cast of "Saved by the Bell".
At age 17, I had a photoshoot with Jerry Metellus and used those in my card to work for agencies in Las Vegas. I was also chosen as a competition finalist for Ujena Swimwear Magazine in Palo Alto, CA. During this time I was working all of the conventions in Las Vegas including: The Ski show, The Shoe Convention, CES show and UNLV Campus fest client promotion.
At age 18 I worked with "Body by Jake" and appeared on ESPN in a sportswear video filmed at the Mirage, Las Vegas.
I have experience in several photoshoots over the years in Las Vegas-Redrock Canyon, Lake Mead, Bullhead City AZ/Laughlin, Mesquite NV, Brianhead UT, Minneapolis MN, Los Angeles CA and recently in Maui and the West Indies.
I have worked in several trade shows in Las Vegas over the years while I was attending college. I gained experience working for modeling agencies in Las Vegas and companies from around the world.
I will need a hair and makeup artist available during any photoshoots or assignments, although I have experience in applying my own makeup.
I also have an artistic eye for backgrounds.
I love nature and doing outdoor shots but would also like to add to my portfolio more fashion, off the wall, artsy style photos with digital touchup.
I have experience in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, horseback riding, skiing, weight training, scuba diving certified, wakeboarding, dancing, tennis, golf, Atv/Utv driving, hiking, decorating, gardening, cooking, computers, online sales, office work/typing, photo editing, photography (Canon D50), new home construction and real estate.
