"My little brother who is 12 years old now is definitely my inspiration."

Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

How did you get to where you are now in your career?

I started as a outdoor photographer when I was gifted my first camera at age 16. I moved out of my parents house in Florida when I was 17 years old and ended up in Willamatte valley Oregon. The beauty of that particular state inspired me to take my photography to the next level. Over time and after many amazing adventures in the pacific north west area, from Washington to Oregon to California, I was able to build up a portfolio. About four months ago I moved to Sedona Arizona and started to do portraits for people coming to visit the beautiful town that I love photographing.

What is your opinion on modeling education?

I am completely self taught.

What person has been your inspiration in life? Who is your hero?

My little brother who is 12 years old now is definitely my inspiration. I know he looks up to me and I want to show him that you can succeed in doing what you love.

Do you feel like you've met your goals?

Yes. I still would like to improve in my photography but I think I have made good progress since I started.

If you had to do it over again, what would you change?

Not one thing.

Do you have any tips?

Practice as much as you can and don't let everyday things get in the way of doing what you love.

How do you stay inspired?

This world is too beautiful to not be inspired.

What photography related things do you recommend?

If you have an idea you want to try out just go with it. It will either turn out amazing or you will learn something.

What's your favourite camera?

Canon rebel.

What is your most memorable experience so far?

I don't work with hired models. Just photoshoots for clients.
