1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I am paleo based. Though I do not follow a strict paleo diet, I do avoid eating dairy, processed food, refined sugar, and certain grains. I have always been someone who has lived a healthy life. I was a vegetarian for a year until I came to college and I realized how hard it was to sustain that lifestyle living off of meals coming from a dining hall. I live my life based around wanting to be happy and healthy as well as being on this earth for a long time. My mom has been battling Melanoma most of my young adult life and this has taught me how important it is to live a healthy lifestyle and to enjoy each day like it is your last.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
Aside from modeling, I have recently become obsessed with Minecraft. My school actually has a free trial for the education version, so I have spent the past week building the most insane house. Along with Minecraft, I also spend my computer time on tumblr, yes that old 2000’s alternative blogging platform. I have an Autumn blog, and reblog many pictures of pumpkins. When I am not staring into cameras, on the internet, or in class, you can find me on a soccer field.
3. What are your goals for the future?
I am currently enrolled in college for marketing and digital media. Once I graduate, I plan to market media on different platforms from Buzzfeed to large movie productions. Eventually I plan to direct, produce and write movies and tv shows. My favorite directors are Quentin Tarantino, Alfred Hitchcock, and Martin Scorsese, three of the most influential movie directors in history. I will live in NYC and LA while also traveling the world, working on sets for films and production studios and with media platforms creating content that will inspire and build success.
4. What is your definition of success?
Success for me is being happy and confident. When you are happy and confident, you have reached ultimate success. Getting that tingle of excitement about what you do, that is success. When you can live the life you truly want, full of confidence and happiness, that is success.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're currently working on.
At the moment I am focused on communication and growing my modeling portfolio while getting my bachelors degree in Marketing and Digital Media full time. I am also planning on spending a semester abroad a year from now in London. I'm hoping to work with some photographers while there and am excited for warm weather, a summer full of adventures and lots of shoots!
