My hometown inspires me. There is a lot of diversity and talent residing in Montclair NJ.
Colossill: When and why did you get started? Was it for the glamour? The money? Pure kicks?
I got started once I left my college basketball team and everyone told me I should get into modeling. When I began modeling I got addicted to the challenges it comes with and the art of it all. The money is definitely nice but I enjoy always having a different challenge each set I arrive to.
Adriana Lima is my all time favorite. She is perfect. Designers….eh I like Calvin Klein. He’s clean as well as his clothes.
Colossill: Which fashion magazines, websites, blogs, and catalogs do you visit most often?
i-D magazine is dope. I honestly don’t visit fashion blogs, websites, etc…..everything is on instagram. I think instagram is the new wave for fashion, models, photographers, designers, and creative minds.
Colossill: How would you describe your style?
My style depends on my mood. If I wake up and I feel bossy I may throw on a tight dress, a white jacket, and some red bottoms. If I wake up and feel tomboyish and have a slight attitude….the Jordans 11’s are going on my feet with some leggings and an oversized tommy Hilfiger jacket.
Colossill: Out of all of the photos the photographer took of you, which is your favorite and why?
My favorite photo is taken by Dae Howerton. We took it in the streets of Manhattan and I love it because it showed growth in my portfolio. He told me that this is a model and from then on I really felt like one.
Colossill: Do you have any other experience in the fashion industry (writing, photography, marketing, etc.)?
Not really however I do have a Bachelors in Communication and Marketing from the College of New Jersey.
Colossill: What is fun and rewarding about modeling?
Whats fun is seeing improvement or going from getting booked once a week to three times a week. Its rewarding making a career out of something most people think is either airy fairy or not a real occupation.
Colossill: How do you prepare for a modeling shoot?
I always get a good nights rest prior, that’s the most important otherwise Im super grumpy. I usually pack my bag the nights prior with the necessities and alwaysssssss exfoliate my skin so I glow
Colossill: What advice do you have for other aspiring models?
Do your research. Look up agencies, requirements, and everything that has to do with modeling.
