Can you tell our readers a little about yourself?

I am a 36 yo Merchandising Manager for American Eagle Outfitters. I love skincare and men’s fashion. I graduated from the Art Institute of Washington with a BA in Fine Arts (I have a hard-earned drawing ability). I have lovely friends and very supportive parents. I’m also 65% Native American… My Great Great Grandmother was pure Cherokee. And most importantly, I’m a May Gemini

What was it like for you being a part of this tribute editorial with Roe The Agency?

It was interesting. I had never done anything THIS extensive with ROE before. I was honored to have been chosen to participate in this project.

What do you love most about modeling?

I love the freedom of expression, the artistic elements involved, the people I meet and work with, and ultimately becoming a whole other person in front of the camera or on the runway.

Do you have any limitations with Modeling? If so, why?

My only limitation would be a runway. It’s just not my favorite thing about the industry. Everything leading up to a show, sometimes, can be so time consuming.

What’s the biggest challenge you think Models face?

Being paid in a decent amount of time or even getting paid AT ALL.

What are you most grateful for?

I’m most grateful to my friends and my immediate family. They are a constant support system and true confidants.

What creative abilities and strengths are most admirable to you?

I mentioned that I draw (usually just illustrations). I like to think I have a pretty good styling eye too. I really like putting toutfits together.

What’s next for you?

I’m currently working on becoming an influencer specifically in the men’s lifestyle genre (specifically skincare and style)
