How did you get discovered?

Laptop, hygiene related products and some curiosity.
Favorite places you have been to:
New York for sure. I did get to go to Milwaukee, WI, too bad I didn't taste the brews the city had to offer. Modeling is still pretty new to me. As the saying goes, I am a "Jack of all trades, master of none. . ."

Stuck up female models, bad media—music, videos and movies
Your favorite curse word...and why?
Shit. It is a constant in my vocabulary. Cunt is also a favorite as well. Love the sound of it!

I like to dress comfortable
What's your favorite pickup line?
I don't really use pickup lines, once they give me a chance to know me, they are in the bag, ha!
What is your new year wish for 2011 and resolution?
Stop smoking cigarettes and make lots of cash...maybe I should make the cash first!
