Agency: DAS Models
1. Where are you from?
I'm from a small town called Centerville Ohio.
2. What does a typical day in the life of Alexis look like?
I don't really have "typical days", I despise routine. Every day is different; new goals, new dreams, new people, new ideas, new challenges.
3. How did you start modeling?
In Ohio modeling isn't really an option. I had to go out and take it myself. I'm thankful for that because it allowed me to learn so much about myself that I didn't know! I learned what I want, what I don't want, never EVER give up and to NEVER take shit from anyone.
4. What has been your favorite project to work on?
I honestly can't say I have a favorite project, not because I don't like my work but because every day is new. ill have a favorite photo or shoot or show one day then the next day have a completely different favorite. Each day I grow, I get better and better, and I have new favorites.
8. What is the best piece of advice you have ever received and from who?
The best piece of advice I've ever received was when before I moved to India I was debating on it and she looked at me and said, "lex just go". She wanted me to live life to the fullest and chase dreams and see the world, and really try to experience it the way others are too afraid to do. I've used that little phrase in just about every situation of where I was afraid and was unsure about my dreams and choices to traveling and modeling and adventures that I've come across. ill be in my head and think, "just go". and here I am moving forward staying positive even when things go wrong.
9. Whats your favorite quote?
My favorite quote.... hmm that's a tough one I have so many but the one I've been focusing on recently is:
"Your profession is not what brings home your weekly paycheck, your profession is what you're put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that it becomes a spiritual calling." Vincent van Gough
10. Describe your style?
Whatever my mood is really, haha. I usually live in a bikini but occasionally ill get dressed up. I love fashion but I love unique things. I'm more into that jewelry you get at a little market that was handmade by the mountain man down the street. one day ill feel like jeans and a band tee the next day I'm feeling extra and am in heels and a red dress ready for a good time!
5. You obviously have a rocking bod, any fitness tips?
I can't-do routine so each workout is different. I get bored easily so I like to make sure my workout is a challenge every time. I hate running so you can forget that lol. I do Yoga for days my soul needs it. Pilates for when my body needs it. Boxing for when my temper needs it and weights and some sort of cardio for when I just have to go to the gym to get it done lol. other than that I eat pretty healthily ( most of the time) I have a thing for tacos, whiskey, and homemade pizza. but not in that order haha. so at the end of the day life is about balance. One day ill eat all veggies and drink lots of water and the next day ill order taco bell through post mates and I'm definitely on my third beer (Thanks, Ohio).
6. Whats your top destination to visit and why?
My top destination.. hmm as of now (because I don't know where my adventures will take me next) would be India. I moved there after I graduated high school literally right after). and it was the best decision I have ever made. it changed me as a person and for the better. I learned to appreciate the little things in life and I learned my strengths and weaknesses. I learned that life is too short to be negative or doubtful. Everything happens for a reason and to never ever take anything for granted. I learned an entirely new culture and it made me so happy to see others way of life. It was so inspiring!
7. What are your favorite tunes you are listening to right now?
I'm m convinced I was born 30 years too late, haha I love old music. ACDC, guns n roses, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, the Eagles, and then I enjoy painting to John Mayer, red hot chili peppers, to goo goo dolls. and occasionally old-school hip-hop. some new songs are ok but I always find myself going back to the meaning of lyrics and not the same mainstream song they play over and over and over again about "getting money" "do you know who I am". just not for me.
