Hello everyone!! Here is a little something about myself!
For those who may wonder what my nationality is, I am Hungarian, Italian, Romanian and German.
I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, just outside of cleveland, small town. I now reside in Las Vegas, Nevada. I was a tomboy and very athletic growing up, but still maintained a girly side with fashion and makeup. I always tried to look my best but when it came to sports i always tried to perform my best, which lead me to outstanding achievments in high school and college. And the rest of my carreer.
I was always confident and motivated to do my best; 2nd best was not what i strived for. I began my athletic career in high school being named the most outstanding athlete junior and senior years. I ran track and cross country, and played basketball. Beginning in the 9th grade thru 12th, I worked hard qualifying myself to the Ohio State track and cross country meets all four years with records still on the boards! Being a top athlete out of Ohio, I was invited to Hong Kong, China to compete against the Chinese in a mini marathon. That was such a great experience. I was 17 years old then. My senior year in high school I was named All State Ohio three point shooter, yes I know I am short, (point guard)! I also played two years in College! My highest achievment was to recieve a full ride scholarship for four years in college for track! I ran the 100, 200, 400 and 400m hurdles. I also participated in band, choir, drama class, musicals, class secretary, and class vice president. And last but not least, homecoming court and prom court junior and senior years.
During my college years, I studied Physical Education, Nutrition, Excercise Physiology, Sports Pyschology. I made the deans list my junior year. Recieved a BA in Excercise Physiology.
I continued my career in fitness competitions and modeling. And I used my degree to help others in Personal Training which I have been doing for 13 years. Love it!
I began my fitness career in 1998 earning my pro status at the I.F.B.B North American Fitness Show, winning first place in my class and overall. Then I continued in competing in my first professional show; the Arnold Classic 1999 in Columbus, Ohio. Doors began to open for me afterwards. Modeling offers, appearances, etc... I continued competing from 1999 thru 2003. .
When I am not working, I love to spend time with family and pets. We enjoy riding our atv's, jet ski, and traveling. And sports of course, working out, a must, tennis, basketball. Downtime, I love the beach, relaxing. And I don't have a problem with being a couch potato watching movies!
I have taken some time off from my fitness career, modeling etc.. I have worked very hard to get as far as I have and I met great people along the way and I am proud of my accomplishments. Now I am ready to work hard again. I am motivated and driven to suceed the best that I can in my modeling career and other work that may come out of that, appearances, acting, t.v, film, etc...
I am selective in choosing photographers, but I do keep my options open. I am currently working for pay, unless otherwise any exceptions that may be presented. I am looking for work in fitness, swimwear, lingerie, fashion, casual, implied nudity, art nude, glamour,commercial, print, t.v, film.
I am very experienced in still photography but i also have experience in videography work.
