Where were you born and raised?
What made you decide to get your first tattoo?
Teenage rebellion, haha, but I’ve always had a passion for art. I got my first tattoo when I was 15, long before it was a fad. I knew even then that one day I’d be covered.
Do you have a favorite tattoo, and does it have a meaning behind it?
It’s hard to say, all of my tattoos are meaningful. I might say my Alice in Chains tattoo is my favorite, I had it done in St. Louis by Matt Hodel, very talented artist.
How did you get into modeling?
About five years ago my friend Matthew of Veralux was just getting into photography and needed models to practice with, we set up a shoot and it turned out awesome! I had so many people reach out to me to shoot after that, and it just snowballed from there. It’s actually amazing to think of how far we’ve both come since then.
What or who are you’re inspirations?
My morning coffee. Music. Science. Traveling. Deep conversations. Weird people. My friends. Waking up everyday knowing there’s a whole world to be explored and new experiences to be had.
What projects are you currently working on?
Running my own business. Building my empire. Modelling when I can.
