Before becoming a model, what were you most interested in?
I've always been heavily into sports. I've played basketball, baseball, you name it. I played volleyball for 9 or 10 years and was on the varsity team from my freshman through junior year before I had a major shoulder injury. Later, I coached my little sister's volleyball team in Washington.
Is that where you call home?
My family and I have moved about 11 times because of my dad's job, but they currently live in Houston, so that's where I usually call home. Some other places I've lived are Seattle, Portland and San Francisco.
Where were you when you got scouted?
I was at a Wiz Khalifa concert in Houston. I had just moved there, and some girls from my volleyball team invited me to go with them. While we were walking in, a scout approached me and asked if I'd ever considered modeling to which I replied: "Absolutely not."
Since being scouted, what jumpstarted your career?
After I finished high school, I immediately moved out to Paris. It was at the time of Haute Couture and I booked Miu Miu. During September fashion week, I closed the show.
You've had some other pretty amazing, career-shaping jobs. What have some of those been?
I shot for W three times and with Mario Sorrenti for CR Fashion Book. But of all of the fantastic things, the fact that I caught the eye of Miuccia Prada is a HUGE deal.
What's something many people may not know about you?
I'm a singer! I was in choir all four years of high school and made All-State my freshman through junior year. Now, I'm in the studio recording and writing music. I've never had voice lessons and I taught myself how to play the piano, so I'm still getting into it all, but if you put Adele and Rihanna together – that's my sound.
