Tell us about your journey to becoming a model?

I like to say that modeling found me and not the other way around. I was working in TV at the local Fox station in DC, and a photographer there approached me and asked if I would like to model for him to build his portfolio. I agreed and that's how it all started. From there I did shoots on the side as they came up, but nothing on a regular basis. I worked in the corporate world for several years doing mostly marketing work and it just wasn't making me happy. After a lot of soul searching and the realization that I am a much more creative person than I originally thought, I decided to take a leap and pursue the modeling full time. A little over a year later and here I am!

How has your experience working with Lauren as a Mentor and a seasoned model helped your personal modeling goals and experience?

Working with Lauren has helped turn my goal of modeling full time into a true reality. I was introduced to Lauren about 6 months after I began working towards becoming a professional model. She was able to move my career forward faster than I ever would have been able to alone. In just a few months I was agency-represented, gaining experience in several different types of modeling, and well on my way to my goal of being successful enough to have modeling be my sole source of income. I am now just over a year into this process and could not be happier with where I am. Lauren is a primary reason I am able to say that. Her guidance and support have been invaluable. I am happy to call her not only my mentor, but my friend as well.
