About Me

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you.”
~Maya Angelou~

Thanks for viewing my profile. It's greatly appreciated!

I returned to the modeling scene with a strong desire to actively pursue it beyond the commonly seen hobby and MySpace "models" that seem to have taken the "world" by storm.

I used to model when I was younger but was never quite comfortable with my physique. Now that I am a few years older, I now love the skin I'm in and am more comfortable in front of the camera.

I have truly enjoyed working with everyone that I have ever had the honor & pleasure to work with.

I am an easy-going yet, professional individual.
I love to have fun at a shoot while retaining my focus on the task, at hand. 
My earlier modeling experience was pre-digital so, trust me, when you read this...I KNOW how to sit still and “HOLD THAT” pose.

My appearance is very versatile.
I am truly able to portray the necessary "character" for the image(s) easily.
I am very expressive with my eyes as well as my facial features so you won't have to rely on my physical appearance & dress, alone.
In fact, it has even been said by many a photog & model, that I am quite the animated individual. A “living, breathing cartoon character”, I believe was one of the comments.

My movements are graceful due to my solid background in various types of dance such as, Latin, Hip-Hop & Swing. All of which, I am still actively enjoying. Dance is my escape & my stress-relief. My true passion, if you will.

1.) Obtain as much exposure as possible
2.) Continuously develop & expand my portfolio
3.) Acquire as much experience & knowledge of this fast-paced industry as possible
4.) Build solid working & networking relationships with others within the industry as well as those who utilize the plethora of talents held by its vast community.
5.) Thoroughly enjoy every single moment I am able to participate in bringing forth an idea previously held captive in another’s imagination, so that it may be shared with the world for all to see...
6.) Build my portfolio to include as many diverse styles (the Photographer's and MUA’s, etc. as well as my own) as possible.

I am interested in working with Photographers, MUAs and other models (male and female) on as many different concepts as possible (ex: Fashion, Glamour, Casual, Lingerie, Swim wear, Pin Up, Calendars, Various Editorials, Print work, as well as many other creatively styled concepts.).

Professional individuals who possesses /displays creativity and diversity within his or her work.

I am still hoping to add some fun, funky, racy, classic beauty, evening attire, bikini, lingerie, etc. types of shots to my port. Creativity is always a plus!
