First thing people should know about me? I may appear shy, a little quiet, and people have always described my presence as intense. I am deeply passionate, and I am in love with life for what it has to offer. I’m curious. I feel like anyone can do anything if they put their minds to it. No excuses, there’s always a way. I am definitely your jack of all trades. I played Cello for 14 years, and enjoyed being in touch with my artistic side till this day. Modeling just happened for me when I was asked to do runway modeling for Nordstrom’s in 2004 (and did that for 3 years). I love to laugh and have a good time, positive energy please! Describe me as your little onion, I have many layers and it keeps going. I’m not your average walking pretty face, I value knowledge, education, and being open minded. I am well-traveled, grateful, and I have love for my supporters, family & good friends.
Last thing people would expect about me? I’m pretty shy when you first get to know me, but I’m super observant. ;). I studied Latin, German, Spanish, & Romanian. I like to cook, and I’m a spice connoisseur. I love all sorts of music. I’m scared of heights. I’m down to Earth, and I can tell if you’re “fake”. I am also on Tyrese Gibson’s web series show on YouTube called Roll Models; you won’t find me talking much because I lost my voice throughout that whole damn thing. Lol.
First thing i do when i wake up? Think of the stuff I need to do, at the same time browse through new music, talk on my phone and start working from my bed as much as I can till I need to get up and get ready.
Last thing i do before i fall asleep? Relax and chill.
Do you kiss on the first date? I don’t, even if I wanted to.
How long should sex last? Could last in minutes or all day…
First on your list of things you find funny? I find weird people, witty people, and weird personalities getting along with each other funny, kind of like the actors on the comedy show Whose Line it is Anyways.
Last thing or person that made you cry? Love can surprisingly always hurt.
What’s the first dish you mastered? Traditional Romanian eggplant spread..
What would be your last meal on earth? A home cooked meal from my father with fresh small Thai Chili peppers on the side and a glass of a very good dry red Merlot.
