While I would like to consider myself a modern renaissance woman, I have come to realize that the aforementioned title is not one in high demand by employers. However, I do have a very specific set of skills that have brought me to where I am. While I do have a very diverse professional background, this site is exclusively dedicated to my first two passions: writing and modeling. (If you are looking for my technical writing portfolio, please click here. If you are looking for my graphic design portfolio, please click here)
As a journalist and feature writer, my credits include CNN, Newsweek, NBC, Elite Daily, The Source, HER Magazine, Zora by Medium, Rogue Magazine, Exotic Cars Magazine, and many others. I largely focus on politics, business, feminism, and millennial life in general.
When I'm not writing, I am signed with Moda Talent in Utah as a model and host. I have modeled for over 20 brands including popular fitness wear, swimwear, casual clothing lines for campaigns in Nordstrom, Macy's, and other fashion outlets and brands. I have also appeared in HerSports magazine and numerous runway shows.
I am one of two hosts for the Herspiration podcast, a show about inspiring females making a difference in the world. It can be found on iTunes. I moved to North America when I was seven and grew up between Detroit (way before hipsters made it cool to be from Detroit) and Windsor, Ontario before moving to Indiana for high school and college. I finished college and graduate school in Colorado, followed by a short time in North Carolina while I worked on my PhD in Business Administration, which I recently completed. I can be followed on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat at @zoeshrugged.
