Age: 27 1/2
Relationship status: Single/looking
Time in Lawrence: Nine years
Occupation: I work with kids at an elementary school.
Dream job: My dream job is a children’s book illustrator.
What were you doing when scouted? I was shopping for cheap clothes that fit in my nonprofit job price range.
Describe your style: Not a lot of bells and whistles — a lot of classic styles like black jackets with collars, hoodies, military style shoulder jackets, boots, straight leg jeans, and I’m a sneaker fan. Nothing clashy, just very clean.
Fashion trends you love: Big combat boots and scarves.
Fashion trends you hate: Trends that take away from actually seeing the person who is actually wearing the clothes.
Fashion influences: Bits and pieces of ordinary people’s fashions influence me. It’s random stuff like the way they did their hair, their shoes or a certain ring that they are wearing. The general attitude of a person plays into it as well.
What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? I would like to see more winking.
Less of? Spray tans.
Tattoos or piercings? I have both my ears pierced. I also have a Navajo figure tattoo on my back between my shoulder blades
Who do people say you look like? Some people say I look like John Legend. However, someone recently told me that I look like a guy on “Top Chef.” I haven’t seen that show yet.
Tell us a secret … I secretly sometimes watch reality TV. Don’t tell anyone.
