I always took care of myself and I love being healthy so what job would be better for me than to model and act?

How did you get started in modeling?
I put up a website and I was noticed by a really good photographer, by the name of Joseph Bleu, in NYC. He pretty much made me the model I am today.

How has your life changed after you involved?
My life has been amazing! I’m my own boss and am always busy. Time flies when your having fun!

What is your favorite part about being a model?
My favorite part, by far, is meeting people. I’m a big people person so I love talking and conversing with others!

What are your likes and dislikes about modeling?
My likes are endless about modeling. First of all, I like to look sexy (doesn’t everyone?) but other than that I like to travel and be noticed by others. I love attention! The only dislike I have about modeling is the stress level.. It’s gets pretty stressful at times.

What are the qualities for you to be model?
I am constantly in the gym and eating healthy. It’s harder to be a model than most think. You have to be up on your game and keep in touch with a lot of people.

Who are your influences?
My influences are my friends and family. I’ve formed a lot of friendships with photographers and other models. My family has always been there for me!

What types of assignments are you attracted most?
I way more attracted to high fashion, Gucci and Armani, style shots. I would love to be recognized for being in Vogue or GQ!

What was the hardest challenge for you?
The hardest challenge for me is the scheduling. Clients want you to be there a certain time and place and sometimes that timing conflicts with other clients… We’ve been able to work everything out so far though!

What are your most memorable modeling experiences? It could be good or bad...
The parties! I have been to a few agency parties and I love them! Always a good time!.. For me at least!

If I saw my face on a billboard in Times Square! I like to go BIG!

What would be your "dream job" in life?
Modeling and acting by far! I would do this for the rest of my life!

What projects are you currently working on?
I am currently working on a few small calendars and just promoting myself right now.

What are your future plans ?
I am planning on a trip to California. Hopefully in the near future I could go overseas to Milan and Paris.

What’s the best advice ever given to you?
The best advice given to me is “Bite your jaw!”- Joseph Bleu

What are some Do's and Don'ts in the business that you have learned?
Do’s- Follow up with people
Don’ts- Don’t follow up with people

What sort of tips or advice would you give somebody who is looking to modeling?
Never pay for one of those modeling courses.. I made that mistake… they’re out for your money!

Is there anything else, to say, we did not ask?
