EDUCATION

 

Working as a Brand Ambassador @ Eye-5 Marketing (NYC) During my time in New York, I worked at private events for high end clients including Chanel, Samsung, Virgin Mobile, FujiFilm, Conde Nast, Swarovski, and Lady Gaga.  Highlights were working with Wired Magazine on the launch of a one-month pop-up shop in Soho and working as a staffing lead on the Midwest leg of the Lady Gaga's Monster Ball Tour. 

Modeling, Acting, & Dancing Abroad (MN, NYC, & CHINA) Spending the first of my adult years modeling, acting, and performing between New York, Minneapolis, and Shanghai, gave me the privilege to work with so many incredible artists and glean what I could from the way each of them approached the pursuit of excellence in their craft. Highlights of my time abroad were walking in Shanghai Fashion, guesting on several episodes of a Koean Soap Opera, Fashion King, as well as campaigns and editorials for 16eme Nord, Adidas, Fairwhale, Shake, and Woodchuck USA.
