Born in LA, I moved to Japan at the age of 3. Both cultures taught me to stay flexible and adapt to different ways of life and from that, it gave me a passion for traveling and always seeking to learn more about other cultures and ways of people from around the world.
My father became quadriplegic during his teens from a diving accident during surgery. His experience influenced me to get into a natural, holistic way of healing the body. It inspired me to study Therapy which led me to specialize in Structural Integration Therapy and Cranial Sacral Therapy as my degree. Going to school taught me everything about human anatomy. The more I learned about the body it motivated me to live a healthy, natural and holistic lifestyle. I do different styles of yoga, meditation, using all natural products in the home that affect not only our bodies but also animals and the environment.
I always knew I wanted to model. I always admired models I would see in movies and on magazines and wanted to be just like them. Getting into modeling was not easy. I didn't start young as most people do. I started later in life after I had graduated from high school and went to college and got my degree. Being a model, I have learned that it's not just about looks. It is a way of life. To shine a light on the human condition. Knowing that everything I do creates influence and impact on how it makes people feel.
Being a model comes with the responsibility of how we influence those around us. I love philanthropy and I use modeling as a tool and a platform for greater influence. I believe that the more we can educate each other on healthy ways of life through our choices and influence, we can continue to grow together as a healthy community.
