What do you consider to be you first big break in modeling?

Hmmm… I think I really first got noticed by Vivacious Models for the James Posey Championship Weekend

What has helped you to seperate yourself from everyone else?

I’m just me! lol There’s only one me so I do it the best that I can. I stay grounded & true to my morals & values, Remember to be grateful & Appreciate all that i have as i strive for better, Stay Thankful for my Family & loved ones & just try to give my best in everything that I do…

Give us a rundown of some of the projects you’ve been apart of?

I’ve been featured on a few online mags, I had a role in a independent comedy called “The Mayflower”, I’m going to be featured in a 2011 calendar for Shh Mag, I had a lead role in a video “need ya Body” by Kafani ft Bobby V & featured in “She’s Bad” by B Streezy ft Lil Boosie and working on lots more to come *smiling*

Tell us about your shoot for DynastySeries with Visual Cocktail…

David is such a sweetheart! He came to New Orleans to do a powershoot & i was scheduled not only to be one of his models but I was the Makeup Artist on set. I had seen his work through his portfolio & had some great feed back from some model friends that I knew he had previously worked with. I enjoyed working with him.

What’s the sexiest thing about you?

The sexiest thing about me? Hmmm…. Probably that I’m a stay at home nerd at heart that loves to dress up in lingerie & stilletos behind the scenes *giggles*

What’s the craziest thing anyone’s ever done to get your attention? And did it work?

A guy almost got in an accident trying to get my attention while driving, smh lol he got my attention but not my number

How do you let someone know you’re interested in them?

I’m pretty honest, so i just let them know nstead of assume anything.

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?

Ummm…. none, lol Its going to depend on the guy not what he has & how he handles himself

If a guy(or gal wink wink!) invites you to there place for the night, what are you putting in your travel bag?

*laughing* you’re not slick, I only date Men hahaha & if i’m dating someone & happen to spend the night with them, that stays between Me & that person *smiles* I like to keep my love interest & quality time private *blushes*

Tell us something about you your mom probably doesn’t want to know…

Me & my mom are pretty close so she knows me inside & out, lol

For 2010 to be the perfect year, what goals would you need to accomplish?

Just to keep pursuing my goals, Getting my name out there more & start working on whats needed for the Makeup & Perfume line that i want to start as well as my boutique.

What other projects will we be seeing you in coming soon?

Ive been working hard on a few things so I will definitely keep you posted *smiles*
