How much do you miss Hawaii after you moved to San Diego? What do you miss most besides the weather? I have to say that I really do miss my friends that live in Hawaii. Hawaii is a beautiful place and I do love the weather, but the people that I’ve met there truly made me appreciate Hawaii that much more.
If there is one magazine you want to appear in what would it be? There’s so many fashion ones that are amazing like Vogue but being in Sports Illustrated would be awesome!!
What about a cover of a magazine? What that magazine? Cover of Sports Illustrated please! Move over Kate Upton!
What advice do you have for girls that want to start modeling? Just be you and ignore any negativity. Sometimes in this industry you have to have a thick skin and have the “take me as I am” attitude. If I don’t get booked for a job, I just think to myself that I wasn’t right for that job/role and move on to the next audition. You can meet a lot of creative people along the way and have a lot of fun, but if you let people put you down, you won’t go far. If you have great confidence, it’ll show through and people will want to book you. Not only do they want a face that works for them, they want the whole package.
Okay who’s hotter Skrillex or Marilyn Manson? hahaha…. they look the same, don’t they? Ewwwww to both but I love to listen to Skrillex when I workout!
Kelly Slater or David Beckham? David Beckham for sure.
Tiger or Lion? Tiger.. mostly because of The Hangover.
Beef or Pork? Beef.. it’s what’s for dinner.
Mac or PC? I’m all about my Mac and will never part with it. Who wants to buy me the iPad?!?! Any sponsors out there??
Name a sport you want to start or get better at? I really wish I could play tennis. Not that I really practice or anything, but I would love to be a tennis pro!
Do you want to tell Sports Hawaii Ohana about our shoot? How was it? Shooting with Glenn was fantastic! He’s such an easy photographer to work with and open to ideas you may have. He lets you be creative and will help you out if something doesn’t look quite right. I like quick shoots and during our 2 hour session, we easily got at least 10 images that I could pass on to my agency for bookings. He’s very professional and got my images to me extremely fast. If you are looking to update or increase your portfolio, I highly recommend Glenn Yoza!!
Tell us a little about yourself. The short is that I’m an Auditor for the Navy (civil service) but I also do modeling/acting as a part-time job and I currently live in San Diego but moved away from Hawaii about a year and a half ago. I still go back to Hawaii 3-4 times a year to visit.
What are your favorite sports to watch and play? I don’t play too many sports, or at all except bowling on occasion, but I like watching basketball, baseball, and football more in person than on TV.
What are your short and long term goals in life? Short term is just to take each day and have fun with it, roll with what life gives me, go to auditions here and there for my modeling/acting side. For my professional job, become a Program Manager and have a more leadership role in my career. I don’t have any specific long term goals other than maybe buy a house. I’m not one to have goals necessarily because in each and everything I set out to do at that point in time, I don’t finish until I’ve more than accomplished and conquered it.
Do you have any interesting hobbies? I love traveling and seeking out new places for their restaurants, shopping, and meeting new people. If I could become a professional traveler, I’d sign up for that job!
Is there anything that you would like to share with the Sports Hawaii Ohana? (this is where you can list upcoming events, fundraisers, performances, shows, promotions, etc. that you would like share/promote to the Sports Hawaii Ohana.) I’m constantly a part of some event or promotion either in Hawaii or San Diego, but you can keep up with me on my blog at www.brigittepatton.blogspot.com
Now for some fun questions
Most embarrassing moment as a model? In everyday life? I’m a pretty clumsy person in general and because of that, I’ve become immune to embarrassment. It takes a lot to really embarrass me. My brother tries to get me to turn red though by walking through the drug store asking if I still need my ointment for Athlete’s Foot (I don’t actually have athlete’s foot).. Sometimes he’ll ask if I need hemorrhoid cream real loud in front of people, but that just makes me laugh instead (again, I don’t actually have hemorrhoids)!
What’s cooler: Zombies, Vampires or Werewolves? Vampires.. cough, cough, Team Edward!!
Which personality would you consider to be your type of guy? (Justin Bieber, Zac Efron, JJ Redick, Tom Brady, Will Smith, Jason Statham, Scotty Mccreery, Jaime Fox, Masi Oka, Johnny Depp, Spock or Harry Potter) I’m pretty picky and this list isn’t exactly working for me… BUT I’ll throw out there Chris Evans with the personality of Will Smith.. I like to laugh.
What do you prefer; moon light walk and dinner or partying at a club and stopping at Zippy’s for a bite on the way home? Not going to lie, partying at a club and stopping at Zippy’s on the way home.. Who can beat chili cheese fries?!
Do you prefer ice cubes or hot wax? Ice cubes..
What is your take on 2012? Anything is possible and it’s already off to a pretty epic start. As an individual you put the limits on what you can and can’t do and I’m definitely at a time in my life where I’m in a pretty good place. Let’s just say that 2012 is going to be FABULOUS!!
Which is > Gucci or Louis Vuitton? Gucci
Which do you prefer watching; America’s Next Top Model, American Idol, America’s Best Dance Crew, America’s Next Great Restaurant, America’s Most Wanted or America’s Got Talent? I hate to admit it, but American Idol… That Jessica Sanchez girl can sing!!
Do you like cooking or going out to eat? Both! I cook 2-3 times a week because I know the ingredients that I’m putting into the meal and can control the bad stuff, but I definitely like trying out new restaurants and sometimes it’s just easier to pick something up with my schedule.
What’s your favorite TV show? (all time) This question is killing me, I can’t decide!
What’s your favorite movie? (all time) Love Actually
Where is your favorite place (location) to visit? Hawaii! Since I moved away I’m constantly figuring out when I can visit because I miss the sun, my friends, and living that Aloha life!
Do you prefer reading the book or watching the movie? I always have intentions of reading the book before seeing the movie, but it never happens.. I end up watching the movie first.
3D or 2D (I’m talking about movies)? 3D
What’s your favorite thing about Hawaii? I can’t possibly name just one thing that is my favorite about Hawaii. I moved around a lot when I was younger because I’m an Air Force brat and living in Hawaii is the only place that ever felt like home to me. I’ve never felt more welcomed and happy than when I lived in Hawaii.. which is why I continue to come back all the time. It truly is paradise!
