Where are you from? I’m originally from Dallas, TX but now live in the City of Angels.
What is your dream job(s)? As a model, actor and singer – I have many goals in the entertainment industry and am driven to achieve them. In the fashion world, I would love to walk the runway for designers like Calvin Klein, Jeremy Scott, D&G, Marc Jacobs, Dsquared and Gucci to name a few. I would also love to do campaigns for brands such as Abercrombie, American Eagle, United Colors of Benetton, H&M and the Gap. As an actor, I would love to be on any show on the CW. I’m very inspired by media moguls such as Tyra Banks, Ryan Seacrest and Oprah and hope to have a career trajectory similar to theirs.
Are you signed? Yes, I am a newly signed with Next Model Management in LA (as of 2/24/11) and am currently in development for international exposure.
Workout regimen? I’ve been working out on a regular basis for about a year now and I’m in the best shape of my life. In high school, I made the choice to sacrifice athletics for the debate team. I don’t regret that decision because I received a full scholarship to college because of debate but I forgot how good it feels to be active. I have a cousin who’s a personal trainer who trains at a gym right by my home in Dallas and another who is an aspiring personal trainer/bodybuilder…so that’s very motivating. I do have a workout plan that I follow for each of the major muscle groups. Usually, I start each workout with a 30-minute warm up on the elliptical at a high intensity and then I move on to weight training. Some days I will do just weights, other days I will do cardio only and other days I will do a mix of both. It just depends on how I’m feeling on that particular day. I try to workout at least 3 times a week.
