I left home at age 15 after meeting Eileen Ford in person in Oregon, and ran away taking a greyhound bus alone for $59 to NYC. 

I wanted to see Europe and Paris and find a way out of my small town. After 5 long days by bus, I arrived in NYC and was accepted into another modeling agency, Paris/USA. From there I met some of the worlds most recognized models, powerful agents, Wall street traders, and ultra wealthy men from around the world. I then changed to Spectrum models, which merged with Next models, who was partnered with Jean Luc Brunnel, then Elite models, Wilhemina and others in between. I lead a double life between modeling and as an asstistant for producers and photographers. I studied under some of the worlds top photographers, and directors, then became a photographer, then producer for 15+ years along side modeling.

Today I am a full size curve model, producer, writer, and speaker.

I know what it is like to be preyed upon on the streets and at the top, the lowest and the highest. This gives me a unique lifelong experience I can share with at risk youth, girls, and runaways. 

Now, as a plus size model, and speaker my goal is to expose those criminals and to shed light on their deeds as well as to tell the story of those I have known and come across, too afraid to tell their own stories and to give back after being part of the underworld to other at risk youths. 

I bring
visions to life

I love stories, images and visuals.I am a visual producer. I want to tell my story to help others, and tell stories to bring hope, inspire and to create stories people remember.
