Hi Cristal it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
I am a freelance model, writer, and overall creative soul from Sacramento, California. I’ve lived in four states: California, Illinois, Maryland, and Arizona, and have visited over 40 states. I have two degrees, a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s degree in psychology. I went to school at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and California State University, Sacramento. I absolutely adore collaborating with photographers and artists to create something new and exciting; different and beautiful. Modeling is a huge passion of mine; it feeds my soul and I love to shoot a variety of genres to keep it interesting.
My favorite things in life are my two little Pomeranians, one is 12 years old and one is a little over a year, watching movies, going to concerts, dancing, eating good food and having late-night cuddle puddles. I am also an Audi (I’ve owned three) and power sports enthusiast, and want to own either a quad or jet ski one day. I absolutely love traveling and experiencing other cultures. I have visited eight countries so far and hope to travel to Bali and the United Arab Emirates in 2017.
How did you get started into modeling?
I wanted to model ever since I was a kid, but my parents weren’t supportive of it when I was really young. When I was in high school, I had a friend putting together a bridal catalog for overseas publication. She asked me to be one of the models and I convinced my parents to let me do it. It was my first paying gig and I was hooked! I’ve continued to model ever since. The only lengthy break I’ve taken was recently when finishing graduate school.
What is the best compliment you have received?
My husband asking me to spend the rest of my life with him. I can’t think of anything better.
Do you have any phobias?
Sometimes I get vertigo when I’m really high up, but no real phobias. I like to think I’m pretty tough.
What’s your favorite party game?
Cards against Humanity.
Which cartoon character do you wish was real?
Scooby Doo, Brian from Family Guy, or any other animated dog. I’m a major dog-lover!
Who would you want to be with, if stranded on an island?
My husband and our two Pomeranians.
What’s been your worst date ever?
I’ve been on a lot of terrible dates lol. A few years ago, I had a really awkward first date – the conversation was forced the entire dinner and we had nothing in common. He was extremely boring, but seemed like he was really in to me so I felt bad letting him down. I tried to be as nice as possible when he asked to hang out at my house afterwards and told him I had a photoshoot in the morning so I couldn’t be up late. He wouldn’t give up though, and asked if he could use my bathroom before he left (he was driving quite a way out of the state to go home).
I knew it was a ploy to try to get inside, but said “sure.” When he came in, prior to using the bathroom, he forced his way around my house asking for “the tour.” At this point, I was done being nice and showed him straight to the bathroom. When he came out, I asked him to go so I could get some rest and his only reply was, “Why are there two toothbrushes in your toothbrush holder?” What a creep! I finally got him to leave and when he went in for the kiss, I gave a polite handshake, rolled my eyes, and closed the door. I never spoke to him again.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Cristal. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Intelligence, creativity and quiet confidence (not arrogance) are the sexiest traits – and celebrating your own uniqueness!
