After shooting the widely coveted Guess campaign, Sky traveled the world modeling and nurturing her appreciation for cultural diversity and music.

Back in the US, fueled by this passion and acting on a dare from a friend, Sky spontaneously jumped behind the turn-tables at a club to spin her favorite tunes.
