BIOGRAPHY

Hello!

 

Thank you for visiting my page and supporting my journey through the modeling industry. I am humbled by the encouragement I have received from people within the industry and others who just enjoy the fashion world. I could not be more excited to share a lifelong dream come true with all of you who support me and my modeling endeavors! 

 

I originally started modeling when I lived on the Island of Oahu, Hawaii, and continued expressing my love of the industry in Jacksonville, Florida. I then relocated to Tampa to attend college and presently work locally in the Tampa Bay area and surrounding beaches. I have been published in multiple on-line and print magazines, and continue to grow and learn through all the industry people I am blessed to cross paths with. I currently work with a few local non-exclusive agencies, but I mostly freelance - both paid and trade shoots. I love runway modeling and working for independent designers on innovative and unique fashion projects. If you are interested in learning more about me, continue reading!

 

I was born in Long Island, New York.  In 1996, my family and I relocated to Jacksonville, Florida where I stayed all through high school. In 2007, I moved to Tampa to attend college, graduating in 2011 with a B.S. in Elementary Education. Immediately after graduating, I packed up my life on the East coast for a life on Oahu, Hawaii where I lived for two years. I was given the opportunity to test shoot with a local Hawaiian photographer who took my first professional photos, in a Hawaiian paradise setting none-the-less! From there, I moved back to Jacksonville to be with family in a time of need, where I waitressed at a local Jacksonville Beach tequila and taco bar. After a year, I went back to Tampa to begin my teaching career, working with inner city children in West Tampa. In 2015 year I was blessed with the opportunity to sign with Level Talent Group in Tampa, which lead me to working as an on air model for the Home Shopping Network out of Saint Petersburg, FL. Since then, I have begun to work with two Fashion magazines based out of Florida, Intermodelo Magazine and Prolific Quarterly. With Intermodelo Magazine, I am very excited to have begun to develop my skills as a stylist and makeup artist, and with Prolific Quarterly, I have been blessed to have been named their East Coast Spokesperson. I have big dreams for the industry here in Tampa Bay, and can't wait to see what more is to come! 

 

I presently live and work in Saint Petersburg, where you can catch me often at local fashion events. I have acquired multiple representation throughout the state of Florida, and hoping to expand out to nationwide representation in the near future. 

 

A little more about me? I am an Aquarius and my best physical quality is my eyes. The coolest thing I have accomplished as a model is working with former America's Next Top Model's creative director, Jay Manuel, as a model for his makeup line, Jay Manuel Beauty on HSN. I have one brother and my favorite food is steamed artichoke. I have had the same four best friends my whole life and I have traveled out of the country twice, once to Australia and another time to The Philippines. I love to paint and create something out of nothing. I enjoy going to the beach and learned to surf when I was thirteen on the famous Waikiki Beach. I probably haven't seen your favorite movie, but I will never turn down the opportunity to bake cupcakes! I obviously love fashion but was never blessed with financial freedom, yet I believe in looking fabulous no matter where I shop!
