I moved from Grosse Pointe, Michigan, to Los Angeles to further my studies. I got my Associate’s Degree in Merchandising Marketing from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.
Then I got my Bachelor’s in Communications from The California State University. After that, I was doing styling and PR, and somehow, a friend who had a clothing line asked if I would do a photoshoot for his new clothing line.
I’d never thought about it before. His site just took off, and I was asked to do one thing after another. I hired agents and managers, and it became a career out of nowhere.
It wasn’t something I was pursuing. I’m not one of those people who moves to Hollywood with the illusion of being a movie star. I came here to go to school!
