I try my best to look on the positive side as much as I can. I feel that being positive during modeling helps as there is always a possibility of rejection involved. There could be someone I would love to work with and sometimes the feeling isn't mutual, so there is a sense of rejection you'd feel, but you can't just stop and give up because of a few rejections here or there. As for life in general, things get constantly thrown at you and if you don't stay positive, then overcoming obstacles would be difficult. 

I've always been super camera shy and a self-conscious person, but I've been working on it. Recently, I noticed that I have a slight crooked smirk. I would basically look like  which I have come to like.

Most memorable moment would most likely be this shoot I did with Karen Tomczak. It wasn't exactly the clothes that I was wearing that made it memorable, but the controversial signs that I was holding. Some of the sayings on the signs were: Will fuck for love, Will lie for honestly, Need alcohol for peace, and so forth. Note that I was standing in the middle of Union Square with people staring and cars honking as they passed me, but nonetheless, very memorable. Ultimately, I live in sweatpants. If I could, without my friends calling me out on being bummy, I would wear them everyday.

Most challenging aspects of my work is portraying, and having self confidence during shoots. As I mentioned, I've always been shy and self-conscious. Actually when I first started modeling, I was so camera shy that I stopped modeling altogether. It wasn't until recently that I got back into it and it has been a learning experience in which I have slowly gained more confidence.

As of right now I'm pursuing a career as a dentist. Hopefully I'll be able to get into dental school and own my own dental practice. I also want to take modeling further and get signed to an agency.
