I could never get the girls in school. I was always that (friend) to all the girls. The smart nerd with the thick glasses. I started modeling 12 years ago when I moved

to NYC. I was turned down by every modeling agent I went to but I never gave up. Wilhelmina signed me 4 years ago and put me on the map

What is the hardest obstacle that you had to overcome so far?

The hardest obstacle I had to over come was to forgive my family for not helping me and believing in me. They told be to get a real job and that I would never

amount to anything. Hard work pays off… that being said they are right I work harder then the average 9 to 5 business man
