Place of Origin:
I went in for an open call casting at Seattle Models Guild and they signed me that day. From there I was scouted by MC2’s Miami office, where I worked for a brief period of time before finding my home in New York.
Working out – boxing/running
What are you listening to at the moment?
I’m listening to Drake’s new album “Views”. Also Big Sean and Jhene Aiko’s collaboration Twenty88 is awesome.
Favorite movie, tv show:
Love and Hip Hop is my secret ratchet guilty pleasure.
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I love “Chance” by Chanel. I think that’s my signature fragrance. My favorite beauty products are DevaCurl hair products which are made specifically for curly girls! I put a lot of pride in my curls so keeping them healthy is super important to me.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I wasn’t modeling I would be graduating from the University of Washington. I completed a year there before moving to New York to persue modeling full time. I hadn’t decided on a major yet but doing something in the medical field has always been something of interest to me. After modeling I might try my hand at acting or something related. I could even see myself being an art director and putting together my own shoots.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Science and biology. I am really interested in the human brain and body. I love watching science specials on Netflix.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
My favorite experience as a model is shooting for Sports Illustrated. It feels incredible to be in the company of top models and people who I find to be so incredibly talented and whom I have admired for many years. Truly a dream come true.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The best part about being from Seattle is the food! Seattle’s diverse culture makes it a really awesome place to explore food from many different regions of the world. Growing up I was exposed to so many different types of food and now it is a really big part of what I enjoy about traveling the world.
Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would love to walk in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. That is one of my biggest dreams. It has been a dream of mine since even before I was signed as a model.
Place you would love to visit:
I would love to visit Egypt. There is so much history there. From the beginning of human existence. I think it would be like rediscovering a part of myself and a part of every person on this planet.
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Summer has me super interested right now. I love that the weather is warming up and the city is coming back to life. Summer is my favorite time of the year so I’m super excited!
