Where were you born and raised?
I was born in Midwest City, Oklahoma. My family lived in Oklahoma until I was about 12. My mother moved us to Houston, Texas and I have resided here since.
Growing up were there any people that influenced your decision on getting a tattoo?
I remember my mother having a rose tattoo on her shoulder that I always saw growing up. Tattooing had been banned in Oklahoma since the 60s until pretty recently. I believe her rebellious nature was one of the many things that inspired me.
What made you decide to get your first one?
I counted the days until my 18th birthday. I went that day. I got a tiny bunny the size of a quarter. It has been covered since then.
Do you have a favorite tattoo, and does it have a meaning behind it?
I got a piece for my mother, after she passed away, on my forearm. It is the most important tattoo I think I will ever get done.
How did you get into modeling?
Growing up I was always told I should try because I was tall. It quickly became something I loved doing.
What or who are your inspirations?
I try to surround myself with amazing and positive people. My family and friends inspire me on a daily basis in a million different ways. I’m very lucky to have the people that I do in my life. They constantly make me want to grow and better myself.
What projects are you currently working?
Shooting as much as possible for publication submissions and promoting myself anytime I can. I’m having a “this is going to be my year” type of years.
