What do you consider to be you first big break in modeling?
Once I did my first eye candy/glamor shoot with a very well known photographer out of the Atlanta area who I call Charlie. That first shoot really jump started my career!
What has helped you to seperate yourself from everyone else?
My persistence, my commitment and dedication, that go-getter mentality. I’m a lady who’s about her business. Modeling is a passion of mines, so I always put 110 in any shoot or modeling project I do.
What’s the biggest obstacle you’ve had to overcome?
Being that this is a male dominating industry, you get faced with all types of challenges. You have to learn to seperate the real from the fake because you will have men coming at your from all angles promising to make you the big next thing. I had to learn that along the way that some men in this industry will promise you anything just to get you to sleep with them. In this industry, you have to stand strong of your decisions and demand your respect, never depreciate your worth for anything or anyone. You have some women who are into stripping and porn, say what you are instead of saying your a model because your making it hard for the real ones and it leaves us dealing with the bullshit.
Give us a rundown of some of the project you’ve been apart of?
Well let’s see, I’ve been featured in magazines such as ASIS, Skintones, FBM. I’ve graced the covers of FBM and OneTen Men’s Magazine. I’m in the Seagrams Gin 2010 Calendar as Ms. October. I’ve done some music videos. I’ve been featured on modeling sites, such as DynastySeries, Black Jack Skanz, HipHop Honeys, GGurls, Silk and a few others. I also have a few more major projects coming out this year but I can’t let the cat of the bag, you’ll just have to wait and see :)
Tell us about your shoot for DynastySeries with Visual Cocktail…
I loved it, loved it! David is a great photographer, and such a sweet person. I love working with him and can’t wait for round 2.
What’s the sexiest thing about you?
That would have to be my legs…..I love my long legs and the way they compliment my body frame….all 5’10 inches of me!
What’s the craziest thing anyone has ever done to get your attention? And did it work?
The craziest thing someone ever did to get my attention was trying to holla at me on the highway, like seriously…..who does that? Especially when your doing like 80 down the highway and someone comes along side of you trying to holla….lmao…hell to the NO it didn’t work. I wasn’t trying to kill myself, paying attention to what a person was screaming from their window doing 80….zoom zoom!
How do you let someone know you’re interested in them?
I just tell them.
A guy drops his wallet in front of you and 3 things fly out…a condom, his lawyers business card, and a supermarket card. Which are you most impressed by?
It probably would be the supermarket card….lol cause I like to eat :)
If a guy(or gal wink wink!) invites you to there place for the night, what are you putting in your travel bag?
tooth brush and lingerie
Tell us something about you your mom probably doesn’t want to know…
that I’m A BAD GIRL!!!!!!!
For 2010 to be the perfect year, what goals would you need to accomplish?
Features in magazines such as SHOW, Smooth Girl, Black Men, XXL, King, Low-Rider and Urban Ink…hint, hint…holla….I’m ready….lol…no but seriously.
What other projects will we be seeing you in coming soon?
There are a few upcoming projects, but I don’t want to spill the beans as of yet, let’s just say it has something to do with print and television. But I will say this be on the look out of my modeling promotional/hosting company called Diamond Girls.
I have personally selected an elite group of beautiful women to do promotional and hosting for private parties, clubs, restaurants, trade shows, car shows, music videos and fashion shows. So if you need some beautiful ladies to host your next event or promote your next product, make sure you book the Diamond Girls!
