I started Modeling at 20 years old after my service in the Army with the Absolutely Beautiful and Confident Modeling Organization (ABC) at Morgan State University.
What do you feel has been your greatest accomplishments thus far?
My greatest accomplishment has been my growth. In a industry with so much uncertainty I have been able to grow personally as a model and learn so much in a short amount of time. Also the confidence and positivity I’ve inspired in others by taking on a shaved head look as a Model.
Who is an artist that you would love to work with?
I would love to work with Ralph Lauren. His Designs are so Classic and now have a modern influence that still have such a classy feel. Ralph’s story is a true American Dream success, very respectable.

I have been published on all platforms but Runway is my 1st love!
How was your first experience as a model?
Well, my 1st experience as a Model was my 1st casting call where I had to walk to get selected for ABC. I wasn’t really nervous because I didn’t know any better lol. The stage director told me to just walk out when I hear the music, so I did, and I felt about 5 hands grab my shirt and pull me back for leaving to early haha. Then they sent me back out, I did my walk, and the rest is history.
What are some of your do's and don'ts when preparing for a photo shoot?
-Pick out a all black look to where there.

-Pack my Model Bag.
-Practice/Research a couple poses I want to try to accomplish.

-Don’t Over eat the day prior or day of the shoot.
-Don’t Workout to hard before a shoot day.
