Charles Kendall Adams

Think about it: if you were running a multi-million dollar company, and your database of customer information was stolen, would you want to tell your clients?

I was successful and I enjoyed modeling, but it got to a point where I felt like I had 'been there, done that.' I wanted something that would inspire me and challenge me.
