How did you both get into modelling?
Well, long story short, before we got into modeling we both had successful YouTube channels and through that we got the opportunity to model for brands before we were signed. In 2014 our photographer-friend Jorden Keith, introduced us to Jules Newmark who owns NewMark models in LA and we’ve signed with Newmark ever since. -SHANNON
