How did you get discovered?

I'm a amateur photographer. I send in some pics to a local agency in Richmond, it just so happen I had self portraits of myself in my photography portfolio, that's how this modeling career all began...


What were you doing prior to modeling?

School, making art and hanging out with my creative circle of friends


People would be surprised to know that I...

have a twin brother (1 minute apart, but quite different from me), he is into sports and I am into the arts!

What's your latest obsession?

House and dub music
