When I was growing up I was obsessed with the show America’s Next Top Model.
I desperately wanted to be a contestant on the show so I could earn my claim to fame.
I really wanted to put on all of the beautiful clothing and have my cosmetics professionally managed by a team of artists. However, I never realized how difficult it would be to join the modeling industry. In fact, there are millions of girls just like me who have the same idea in mind. Relatively early on, I realized that I had too much competition to be a runway model as I had dreams. However, I’m happy to report that today I am a model… For central heating and cooling systems. I never would have imagined that I would be the spokesperson for a major air quality control company. I work with the product development team and the marketing team to assist with their air handling equipment promotions every time a new piece of air quality control machinery comes on to the market. First, they have me interact with the air quality equipment as though I am learning about indoor air handling devices for the first time. I often have to pretend that I don’t know how an air conditioning unit works at all. Then, they teach me the basics of programming the HVAC devices inside my own home. After that, they take a few shots where I am relaxing in the high quality indoor air provided by the central heating and cooling system. After we have gathered all of our promotional materials with the central heating, cooling, and ventilation equipment the pictures are used for our website and physical magazine. It’s not as glamorous as ANTM, but I get to keep a lot of the HVAC devices.
