Age: 26
Profession: Model / Dreamer

Where were you born and raised?
Southeast Texas, near the Louisiana border and on the Gulf Coast.

Growing up were there any people that influenced your decision on getting a tattoo?
I’ve just always wanted tattoos of some sort. Seeing old school photos of tattooed women and men were of course always inspiring but I suppose once I started spending more time with people that were tattooed and watching the process, it helped encourage me even more.

What made you decide to take the plunge and get your first one?
I don’t know actually. Just finally got the balls. Then it was easy from then on.

Do you have a favorite tattoo, and does it have a meaning behind it?
My tank girl or my cupcake tattoos are my favorite so far. Tank Girl has always been a huge inspiration for me and one of my favorite comic books solely because of its art. This piece specifically was originally drawn by Brian Bolland. I really expect to add more once Mr. Rufus Dayglo decides to finish drawing it. <3

How did you get into modeling?
I was a photographers assistant and I ended up modeling for him. I then dabbled in it from time to time but never took it seriously. two and a half years ago, I decided I would take the plunge. Maybe it could help me travel and see the world which, it has so far. I didn’t expect it to take off like it did and hope to further myself even more.

What or who are you’re inspirations?
Echo Nittolitto is a huge model inspiration. But in general, people that I surround myself with and nature are also a huge part of inspiring me from day to day.

What projects are you currently working on?
Working on filling my book with more high-end fashion work. Deciding on whether I am going to Europe next year or moving to NYC. Eventually, both will happen. Just don’t know which is first yet.
