1. Where you are from?
I am a New Yorker! Just moved to midtown, I love it there. A lot of young energy and it’s so great to be in the vibe and culture of the NYC. It inspires me and motivates me to grew personally and professionally. There are so many people you can learn and grow from. I like the fast pace of it as well!

I am extremely passionate about art- specifically classical realism. I am an oil painter myself, I have been painting for about 5 years, mostly self-taught, however, I have been drawing since I was about 8 years old. Currently, I am working on putting a show together, which is very exciting! It will consist of about 15-20 pieces. In addition, I love to read, play ice hockey, working out, running, and generally exercising, no sky diving though, life has enough extremes as it is already!
3. Favorite clients from the biz?
My favorite client has been Calvin Klein underwear, they were my first big fit client and I am still working with them. Rag and Bone, J. Crew are great clients as well, and all the other clients I am currently working with have been good to me and everyone of them has a unique and interesting products, which make them stand out in their own way.
4. Dreams/goals any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
I in the near future I would love to work with some high end clients /brands I haven’t worked with yet, Gap is definitely a one big client whom I would love to work with. I always enjoy challenging myself, however, maintaining integrity while achieving my goals is just as important.
5. Career highlights?
The Singles Project was fun, there was a fun photo shoot, I was featured in 3 episodes. Filming the VH1 reality show The Agency, where I was featured as one of the top fit models in the industry, it was my first interesting and fun experience in the world of reality TV. Furthermore, I did a movie called Cold Souls starring Paul Giamatti, Sci-Fi dark comedy, that gig got me an invitation to join SAG.
6. How did you get into modeling or acting?
I started my modeling career with a small modeling agency in Ocean Grove, New Jersey, after 6 months of training and experience with them, I was scouted by Wilhelmina and joined their main board, which lasted for quite a bit of time and propelled my career into the professional world of modeling. Eventually, I became very successful in fit modeling and developed a strong career in Fit.
