 How and when did you begin in modeling?   When I was twelve-years-old I was scouted and signed by Donna Baldwin Agency in Denver.

But each casting I went into, I was a little more sure of myself and…

Having The Time of His Life

Colorado likely isn't the first place coming to mind when thinking of art scenes. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle can hog the artistic spotlight in the West and Pacific Northwest, while Chicago, Austin, Philadelphia, and New York fill up the map when heading East.

They’re cold, robotic and there are too many of the same model within the square mile you live in. When is the last time you pulled up…
