I went to school for business and in currently working at the college of new jersey as a supervisor. Currently 27 years old. The reason for me getting into modeling is because I've recently started feeling comfortable in my own skin. Growing up, I was an ugly kid and overweight at that. Pretty much struggled with my weight my whole life and just pretty much the way that I look. In the last 2 years I feel like I grew into myself but I am still on the road to improve myself. These pictures help me express myself and let's me tell my story.
