About Me

I'm dedicated to health and fitness, striving to improve in spite of age. My current physical condition and appearance is comparable to the image depictions of the last several years but with longer hair. I maintain a well-groomed but natural appearance with no tattoos, piercings, dyed hair, or tan lines. My fit athletic build is also entirely natural with no cosmetic alterations, chemical enhancements, or cyclic diet manipulations that might prevent me from helping with a short-notice need on any given day.

I’m comfortable working solo or with other talent and crew as a team. I don’t need a closed set or special consideration that may be costly or inconvenient for the production or classroom. My comfort and professional demeanor helps others to also be comfortable. Martial arts expertise and public speaking experience occasionally complement a production need. Since 2006, my modeling experience has encompassed a surprising scope of genres and locations in over 20 countries.

I wish to continue learning and exploring, hoping to express and perform better. With my photography practice (MM#1152768) and a geothermal camera design as current priorities, I continue to model a few small jobs per month typically, and something big once in a while. I’ve been very fortunate to work with many notable artists, teachers, and producers. With a humble personality I'm happy and often honored to simply serve an aspiring artist or student even if only for practice. I'm open to trade terms for select collaborations, and charity work for worthy causes.

The Acadiana Models Guild began in 2007 to provide models of good work ethic and character for classrooms, open sessions, and artist projects. The guild functions have expanded to provide helpful and protective educational programs for all modeling genres. The New Orleans Models Guild has a distinguished history predating the Acadiana Models Guild. We assumed leadership mid-2015 by request of the founders. The guilds are not-for-profit trade associations open to freelance and agency-signed talent, union affiliated or independent without bias. We intend to serve the founders, model members, and arts community of New Orleans equally well. We are currently seeking highly-qualified volunteers for statewide expansion chapters to address industry ethics problems in other regions.
