Where were you born and raised?
I was born in Los Angeles CA. Currently living in Las Vegas.

Growing up were there any people that influenced your decision on getting a tattoo?
I’ve always loved tattoos. I suppose I was always influenced by art and self expression.

What made you decide to get your first one?
I decided to get my first tattoo when my grandmother passed away.

Do you have a favorite tattoo, and does it have a meaning behind it?
The 11 11 tattoo on the back of my ear. It is a constant reminder for me to always think positive.

How did you get into modeling?
It actually happened by accident. I did a photo shoot for a product, and it turned out that I knew the photographer so we took some modeling shots. At the time I was new to Instagram so I decided to post some of the photos and photographers gained interest in working with me so I started shooting a lot more often.

What or who are you’re inspirations?
I’d have to say my boyfriend Keith. He has always supported whatever it is that I want to do. His background story is truly inspiring and now he is an amazing photographer.

What projects are you currently working on?
I am also a Makeup Artist so I am in the process of learning Microblading. (semi permanent 3D eyebrow strokes)
