Finding Superstars

In my spare time I've always kept an eye out for those who would be successful modeling and then I try to help them start their career by getting them signed with big agencies around the world. I've done this for about 5 years and only found a handful of people (it's not everyday you come by a supermodel). Recently I've taken more interest and decided to work for Stacey Eastman at Pulse Management (he actually sent me to Italy when I was 19) and who is also partnered with Elite Model Management in NYC. Yes, that's the Elite, the biggest of them all. So, I'm called a Director which gives me a lot of responsibilities educating models, and scouts but I also get to scout myself. It's sort of addictive. Plus, when you know you can connect good talent with reputable agencies around the world who don't scam people for money, it's even more fun.

About a month ago I was at the mall and walking around with my husband and son I happened to look over my shoulder behind me and see the most beautiful girl standing with her family checking herself out in the mirror with sun glasses. My body immediately turned around to take a second look to see if what I was really looking at WAS indeed a potential supermodel.
Well, only 4 weeks later she signed a 3 year contract with Elite in NYC and is now on her way to doing some really fun modeling work. Take a look, her name is Nicole and these photos are from her first ever photoshoot. I think she's a natural, don't you?
