What have been your favorite modeling experiences so far?

Shooting with Target this year was a lot of fun! We shot active wear and I had to actually workout so I was sweating! It was on a film set so it was very interesting to watch all the behind the scenes. It was very different then a photoshoot studio, a huge crew and a lot detail went into everything.

What is your personal fashion aesthetic?

My go to items when shopping or selecting an outfit are usually something comfortable, but a little different, I love button ups with a long neckline and some skinny jeans with a good boot. Or a body con dress that you can dress up or down, but also shows your curves. I also love mixing vintage with some of my more modern items; it’s a cool contrast.

If you were not modeling, what field would you be working in?

Well I’m also a jazz singer, I’ve been performing in the states and abroad for the last 6 years, and it’s nice to have both modeling and music, as they never get boring!

What do you like to do on your off time?

On my off time I love hanging out with friends, going to see live music, or hitting up a museum. I love coffee; so exploring coffee shops around the city, people watching, and having a chat!

Has there been someone in your life that has influenced you, in fashion or otherwise?

A big influence in my style has been my mom she’s always been into showing her curves in a very cool, chic way. I think that’s given me confidence to not shy away from certain styles just because I’m curvier.
