Where were you born and raised?
Born in Nacogdoches, THE country! Raised in Dallas, TX where I currently reside. Definitely a switch up from the farm life, but they both own a piece of my heart
Growing up were there any people that influenced your decision on getting a tattoo?
For women my generation I think Kat Von D was the first female I watched growing up who was covered in ink and embraced it! I was in love with that woman growing up!
What made you decide to get your first one?
It was my 18th birthday, and I had been thinking of it for a long time… The second I was legal, I was in the shop! Got 8 that first year haha.
Do you have a favorite tattoo, and does it have a meaning behind it?
I have “rise and fall” on both hands … I think it’s a constant reminder that life is always full of ups and downs. You have to rise every time you fall.
How did you get into modeling?
It kind of just… Happened. Every little girl wants to be a model, I just happened to be good at it. Started young, met the right people and got pushed in the right direction. A lot of it was marketing and luck!
What or who are you’re inspirations?
In my personal life, I’m inspired by my closest friend Melanie. She works an unreal number of hours every week, she is a beautiful soul and incredible friend… I don’t know how she finds the time. To talk to me about my day to day and manage her own. I mean the woman has a dating life and works 80 hour weeks at 23 years old! It’s crazy. Somehow still, she manages a smile and some corny joke that makes me laugh until I cry, every single day. As for the industry I’m inspired by a lot of models and photographers such as Lady Vamp, Ohrangutang, etc. I think their looks and work are very original, sexy and modern. They definitely represent our industry well.
What projects are you currently working on?
I’ve got a lot of magazines and clothing brands I’m in the works with, so you will have to stay in touch with my social media to find out!
