1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I'm really into bugs. When I got out of college, I wanted to go back for a second degree in Entomology (study of insects) and work in a natural history museum. Didn't exactly pan out though, so now I'm here!
2. What are your biggest passions?
I have a lot of passions, and I'm a very passionate person. I'm very passionate about music and concerts. And of course photography- I think photography is what I'm most passionate about. But there are also other things, like animal rights and even thrifting. Huge thrifting fan.
3. What are your goals for the future?
I'd really love to branch out and create a career in photography. As much as I love modeling, the love for it stems from being able to help other photographers create art. And I myself would love to spend my days collaborating with other photographers, brands, and people to create that art (while also having it pay my bills).
4. What is your definition of success?
I think success to me is just having one thing every day that is a positive experience. Even if it's something small. If I can lay in bed at the end of the day and think "Wow, I had a really good conversation today", that's a successful day for me.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
We love a shameless plug! Currently, I'm doing a lot of modeling work with a handful of successful and talented photographers from the Upstate New York/Manhattan area. You can also find me at this month's HudsonPorts meet-up on Saturday, June 9th in Albany, New York. Check out their Instagram fore more information @hudsonports. I will be both modeling and shooting photography that day (what I like to call a hybrid shoot).
