Favorite designer, fragrance or grooming product: My favorite brands align with designers such as Gordon Richardson, Amancio Ortega, Julian Woodhouse, Cross Colours, Armando Cabral, and Craig Green.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling? This is the golden question. Personally, I feel that modeling is an ongoing thing, even when conducting business; you are the face, the model. So for me, I will always be a model, through Health & Fitness.

Favorite modeling experience so far? My favorite modeling experience is when I was able to meet the designers (black-owned) of Cross Colours. I was so nervous because it was my first GO-SEE/ Casting and even though I believe I scared them by talking too much, it was worthwhile meeting them and being in their presence of success.
Where do you feel the most stuck in your modeling career? I feel most stuck in me crossing over into being a paid model. I am very aware of my worth, and I feel I have great attributes. I feel like I am misunderstood when it comes to me exuding confidence (explained above during my first model go-see).
Currently, you’re obsessed with/about? I am currently obsessed with Solange Knowles. Just her creativity and her exemplifying free spirit and art are just so Godly to me. Me observing her feed instills a lot of mental empowerment for me. I am obsessed and seek for more even through her artistry.
