Changing gears, you mentioned earlier that you have a career focus outside the field of modeling. Tell us about your work as a software engineer.
“I have a degree in Computer Science from the University of Oklahoma. I am currently a software test engineer for an awesome marketing and tech company in Highland Park. I’ve worked for IBM, Ebay, PayPal, Gamestop Corporation, and Intuit in the past. I enjoy the tech industry because it gives me the opportunity to exercise the analytical part of my brain. I get a lot of satisfaction from it, and it allows me to provide a good living for my children.”
