Where were you born and raised?
Born and raised in Houston, Texas.

Growing up were there any people that influenced your decision on getting a tattoo?
I’m pretty much the only person in my family with tattoos. Half of my family is intrigued by body modification and love my tattoos, while the other half have more conservative thoughts  on the matter. I dove into art as I was growing up and the beauty of tattoos naturally caught my eye. Portraying beautiful and meaningful art on the body is an enticing thing.

What made you decide to get your first one?
My first tattoo was a drawing I did, that had a great deal of meaning to me figuring out what kind of person I wanted to be. Striving to maintain a peaceful balance in my life, that tattoo will always remind me of where it all started.

Do you have a favorite tattoo, and does it have a meaning behind it?
My favorite tattoo is a separated heart, my best friend has one to match. We got this tattoo together and it will always remind me of our sisterly bond.

How did you get into modeling?
I started at a modelling school when I was about 13 and it did not continue at all. I didn’t really begin my journey in modelling until I was 18 and I had no idea how much I would love it. I have worked with some incredibly talented individuals.

What or who are you’re inspirations?
My mother is a huge inspiration to me, her wisdom, support, and guidance are what make me who I am. She continues to teach me how to be kind, patient, loving, and open minded.

What projects are you currently working on?
I currently don’t have any large projects in the works, but I am always open to them when they come around! At the moment, I’m focusing on traveling and exploring as much as I can.
