If I had to describe myself in one word, I couldn’t because as much as I like one word answers, I am not a one word person. Where do I start? Once upon a time… JK. We, no, I don’t have time for that. I am first generation Jamaican American from humbly beginnings. From an early age I learned how to be independent, self-sufficient, and financially wise( my friends would say “cheap”) because if I waited for someone to do it for me I’d be stuck in elementary school. I found pleasure in making my dollar stretch, which led me to pursue a Bachelor’s (2020) and a Master’s (2021) in Finance from the University of South Florida. Being financially wise(cheap) has enabled me to travel to 12 countries and counting and invest in other hobbies like modeling, photography, and food. I also enjoy singing praise and worship at my church. I am a Seventh Day Adventist Christian that believes that God has given me gifts and I will use them to glorify. I am not perfect but I am working on it everyday.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.Hebrews 11:1
My family can contest that from an early age I could always sense when a camera was pointed at me, like a sixth sense. I became serious in college and collaborated with a lot of local photographers. I was in and out of the thrift store and Walmart creating small and complex outfits and personalities. When you’re on a budget you become way more creative. I might not have the best smize, a million followers or an 8 pack of abs but at least I can say that I understand what true art can be.
I realized that I am just as good behind the camera as I am in front of it. When my brain fills with creativity I must create for fear I’ll drive myself mad at night. I started in the summer of 2020, investing and improving my photography skills exponentially. I am in a constant search of clear, sharp, and high quality images. As a model, I understand how to pose and position clients to look their best. I believe that anyone can be made into art.
