How long have you been into modeling?
I've actively been into modeling for about a year now, but my interest in the art of modeling extends to a length of 5 years.
What's your expertise?
I'm aiming to become well versed in many different areas of modeling, but currently my expertise is Commercial Print modeling.
Where do you see Fashion going in the next 5 years?
In the next 5 years, I see a great emergence of more smaller business brands and designers taking over fashion; due to the fact that many individuals are making the decision to start creating and designing their own clothes; and by the adoration and love they receive from their fellow peers concerning these designs, they ultimately decide to sell their designs, market them by way of social media, and gain revenue through online stores. Consumers see these small businesses as a chance to obtain the same (or better) designs that the major brands offer, but within a more economical price range. This I believe, is the future of fashion.
What is your favorite color?
My favorite color is red.
Tell us more about your modeling? When did you start? Where can people see your portfolio?
My love for modeling, I believe, began subconsciously as a child. From a very early age I loved taking pictures and being in front of a camera; whether it was with a personal camera, picture day at school, or a yearbook photo. As time went on, I began to realize that I possessed somewhat of a gift---being photogenic. From there my interest and appreciation for the art of modeling grew, but I never actually participated in it. Then, one day, about a year ago, I received a call about coming to do a Fall fashion shoot for a college magazine. The shoot was successful, and I was urged by the photographer there to consider doing a shoot to establish a portfolio; and now a couple of shoots later, here I am; working persistently at building my modeling career.
