- About me
Be the first to leave a review.
The bulk of my 13+ years of experience lies in fashion & beauty print, runway, and atelier/couture modeling. I also have beauty pageant experience as a 2x National titleholder. I was pageant trained by Miss Universe 2005, Natalie Glebova.
I have formal runway and model training from the best in the business, having trained under Mandy Dyonne, runway and modeling coach for Elite,IMG, NEXT, The Society, and other top global agencies. She's put the best walks in the business on the runways of Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Fendi, and Prada. She's also coached multiple Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway models, and for the Elite Model Look competition.
My skillset is rooted in movement given my training and having studied at the Joffrey Ballet in the Adult open division as a form of personal fitness during my full time modeling days. My daily fitness regimen was developed by John Benton of John Benton Model Fitness, who trains countless Victoria's Secret Angels, international models, and beauty queens.
I have been trained in every aspect of the modeling profession, having completed Barcelona based Barcino Management's Model Academy, learning industry standards on everything from portfolio and self-tape creation to contracts, payment terms, casting protocol, and deportment and professional conduct.
My core portfolio is rooted in evening gown, high end bridal, designer jewelry, and luxury beauty. I've expanded recently into luxury swimwear. Generally speaking I am looking for more opportunities and portfolio building in those directions. With much experience, and the best trainers in the business I bring a high degree of professionality and expect the same from anyone I work with.
* I do not do TFP unless the photographer/team has a preconceived, high production value concept that fits my current portfolio needs. I do not "shoot around", as this isn't the best use of my time or decade built experience.
* Hair and makeup being bundled into a job on-set are negotiable, and I am comfortable working with cosmetology students on any non-permanent changes to my appearance. : )
