Q & A is all about letting the public know who you are, where you’re from and how you got into modeling.
We want to promote you the best way we can and have the public interested in you not only a model but also as a person!

We want to know a little bit about you! Tell us where you’re from and what you do for a living?

I am from Paradise California, the town that is now known around the world. 8 months ago this answer would have been very different. We survived a catastrophic fire that burned our town down.

It is a miracle we are alive. I feel like I have been given a second chance at life, and want to live my dreams. Art has given me a way to speak out, a voice, and a way to process.

I had been working in the Medical field for many years. On the side, as my hobby and passion, I have been an artist my whole life.

I began face painting, then body painting, and Modeling for other body painters.

Dancing has also played a huge part in my modeling career. Giving me confidence, and focusing on the movement of the body.

This year at the International Body Paint Convention and Competition, I won International Body Paint Model of the Year, and became an ambassador for Paradise.

Modeling is a difficult industry to succeed in, how did you get into the industry?

When I began dancing, and body paint modeling…I began to get requests for shoots, clothes modeling, and creative, artistic expression type photography. This kind of modeling celebrates the strength and realness of the body.

They wanted to make art instead of me having fit into strict beauty standards and expectations.

The dance was incorporated into many shoots, also my friend who owns 11:ZeN, a clothing company, called on me as her goto model for diverse style and clothing as a form of wearable art.

5 PREDICTIONS FOR THE FUTURE OF RETREATS

The rustic, historic property once offered hot mineral soaks in private rooms with big clawfoot tubs and one of the best and largest wood-burning saunas in the States. Days frolicking between the steaming hot mineral baths, a cold creek, and the sauna—and nights spent without phone or wifi in a simple cabin in the woods. Hot tea, a warm fire, and a cool stack of magazines: My kind of bliss.

The Receipt Keeper D'Angelo Wallace always knows how to cut through the chaos.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW what’s going on with YouTubers or anybody else with a modicum of influence online, you’ve got two options. You can watch their videos and scour Instagram—or you can get thee to a YouTube drama channel. And no one does a channel quite like D’Angelo Wallace. The Texas-based 22-year-old packs his superlong explainer videos (many of them run over an hour) with timelines, charts, and commentary—a hybrid model that perfectly encapsulates the messiness of the influencers he covers. He now has more than 2.18 million subscribers. “I will say it’s not necessarily a case of me always striving to have the best research, or I’m always going to be 100 percent correct,” Wallace said. “I just am obsessed with the storytelling of it all.”
