Please tell us more about your name Audii and your relationship with cars in general?

I’m a college senior pursuing automotive design via mechanical engineering. The name Audii started with my admiration of Audis, specifically newer models including the R8 for its sleek, sexy exterior. Audis are sturdy, durable cars – likeso, I am considered strong and determined amongst many.

How were you discovered?

Two years ago the owner of a promotional modeling group in Macon, GA wrote me on Myspace because she liked my photos. A week later I started modeling with her team, and the rest is history…

What inspired you to pursue modeling?

I was a tomboy, so I never thought about modeling before I was discovered, but being in the male-dominated field of engineering, I needed to learn proper etiquette and gain the confidence I’d need to be respected in my field… and it worked.

You have an outstanding hourglass figure, where do the curves come from and how do you stay in shape?

Genetics mostly. Both my mom’s and dad’s sides have curvy women. I try to eat healthy and exercise as often as I can.

Which of your features attract the most attention?

I would say my bright smile, but I get many compliments on my full lips, almond eyes and thick thighs.

What kind of shoots/work do you enjoy the most?

I’m a sucker for hot fashion work. Definitely my favorite shoots.

What are some of your credits?

I was featured in Youtheary Khmer’s Fall 2010 line in Manik Magazine. Worked with Chad Finley and CClark Fotos. Exquisite Model Management. WSHH (pending). Diva Day International

Tell us some of your long term goals…

After college I plan on attending mechanic school and owning a repair shop.

Do you have any tattoos or piercings?

Yes, one navel piercing and one tattoo of gears behind neck.

Do you get nervous before shoots, and if so how do you motivate yourself to overcome the nerves?

It depends on the project. I think most if not every human feels nervous or an adrenaline rush before a big performance Usually I get over my nervousness quickly by just repeating quietly to myself “Pretend that Common is your audience…” 😉

People would be surprised to know that ___________?

I’m a super laid-back country chick who loves to travel… AND can cook her a** off!

Your idea of relaxing is?

Spending quiet quality time with my “boo-thang”. When I’m alone at home I’m quite an exhibitionist. I like to turn off all of the lights, light candles, relax in a bubble bath while sipping wine to clear my mind.

You’ve got front row tickets to see your favorite artist. Who is it and why?

I have a huge appreciation for music, so it’s hard to say! Amongst my favorites are Kanye West, New Edition, Adelle, Beyonce, Temptations, Rihanna, Marvin Gaye, Jay-Z, Sara Bareilles and even some classical music composers.

Your portfolio is very versatile, how do you pull off so many looks so well?

I was once told that a model’s job is to SELL what they wear – with that said, whether it’s a high-fashion Louis Vuitton trench coat or dirty rain boots, the model has to portray confidence in his/her images. That’s what I strive to do.

How does music impact your daily life and your work? Whats your favorite song of the moment?

It creates my overall mood. At this very moment, right now I’m listening to “Kiss and Tell” by a new underground R&B/Pop group called FaSho’. I admit it has me feeling some kind of way…

How do you balance your modeling career with your romantic life?

It’s easy to incorporate both. On one hand, I could wear a sexy teddy or lingerie that I’d wear at a shoot and give my man a private show in the bedroom. On the other hand I can bring sexy thoughts to a shoot to create a sensual (and professional) atmosphere. At the end of the day, everyone is happy. 🙂

What are your turnoffs?

Guys who can’t hold intellectual conversations, who lack respect for women and who have goals but never put forth the effort to achieve them are all major turnoffs.

What’s the craziest thing an admirer has done to get your attention?

Built me a cake and left it on my porch like in “Napoleon Dynamite”
LOL! I’m j/k… but it would be pretty sweet if somebody left some chicken dressing on my porch.

Who have you enjoyed working with the most? And name someone you would love to work with?

Hands down, Chad Finley is one of the best photographers I’ve worked with thus far. CJ Clark (CClarkfotos) and Alan Luckey are also good, professional photographers. I’m a sucker for breath-taking fashion photography. With that said, I would love to work with Derek Blanks and Laretta Houston.

The most sensual shoot you’ve ever done and what made it so sexy?

The most sensual shoot I’ve done so far was with CJ Clark. He’s soooo cool and laid-back (my kind of photographer!) I felt welcome, free and comfortable at his studio; therefore I could bring out sex appeal with ease.

What should we expect to see you doing in the near future?

Unlike most models I’m not necessarily addicted to the limelight. I enjoy doing behind-the-scenes work as well; for example I’ve helped coordinate Atlanta’s first “Entertainment & Fashion Night Out” (w/ Kandi Burruss and Stevie Boi) as well as assisted at FaSho’s concerts. I intend to be involved with many other upcoming music and fashion events.

Any parting words or people you would like to thank?

“Anything you imagine is attainable.” First and foremost, I give God all the glory and praise for allowing me to see the potential within myself. Special thanks to my family and boyfriend for seeing my potential as well and speaking positivity into my life through their words encouragement. Thanks to all of those who have supported my career so far – I love you all!
