---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Modeling and Music are huge passions in my life and rather than keeping my passions apart, I’ve decided to merge those two things together.
I started playing the piano when I was 5. Music became my primary form of expression right away. I was a pretty awkward kid growing up and I most often had my nose in a book. I had acne and was pretty chubby, but I found that whenever I was playing music I felt like I fit in. I started singing and performing in musicals when I was 10 and I started playing the flute when I was in Middle School… (yes, I went to band camp.) I joined my first rock band in High School and started writing music. Since then, I haven’t stopped. I moved to New York in 2006 in pursuit of my dream of music, and have been writing ever since. I am currently working on my first album as a solo artist.

After moving to New York, I started modeling for fun. Mostly 1940s style Vintage Pin-Up and artistic shoots for friends of mine. Spending that time in front of the camera helped me to gain some confidence in my own skin. Although I had been playing sports since Middle School and was very athletic, I was always plus size. Over the years I had gained some confidence, but it wasn’t until I started modeling that I really started to appreciate my shape. After realizing how much I loved modeling I started working on building a portfolio. I had the opportunity to work behind the scenes with OneStopPlus.com as the Social Media Liaison and learned a lot behind the scenes. I was signed by IPM Model Management in 2011 and have been continually blessed with watching my career grow.

So I will continue to pursue my passions in life. Although I never would have expected to be in New York, having met the amazing people I’ve met, I am here living my dreams. I’ve always tried to take any opportunity that presents itself, and have found that the more open I am to these opportunities the more come my way. As my Momma always says best:
