What advice would you have for other aspiring models trying to get noticed by these agents?
I would tell other aspiring models to never give up. I have worked with a few agencies in the past, and when I was first starting out, i got "rejected" by a few agencies. Maybe I was not what they were necessarily looking for at the moment, but everyone seems to have their own niche. Soon enough, I found some agents that wanted to work with me and I have been working as a fitness model/commercial print model for a little over two years now. Never give up!

How did you become interested in modeling?
I became interested in modeling ever since I was in college. I used to get approached in clubs and in the streets by those people who give out busines cards about their modeling agency. I would also get asked if I was a model, or if I ever thought about modeling. This seemed to get me very interested in trying to persue this, and after I graduated college, i went on to persue this.

What agencies have you been in contact through MODELS.com?
Liason Models, Unique Models, Vision Models, R&L, and MMA.

What was your experience with them?
So far, we have been in contact through emails and I am very pleased with the conversation we have been making.

On a side note, I recently shot the cover to another fitness magazine, and my 2xist underwear boxes should be in stores hopefully by Christmas.
