So Who Are You?

I’m Ayo Elise. I’m a print model, trade show presenter, spokesperson and on-camera host born and raised in San Diego, California. I accept bookings in Los Angeles, Orange County and worldwide.

What’s Your Story?

I booked my first shoot as a teen then went on to appear in catalogs, in-store ads and magazines both big and small! I stopped modeling soon after my father died and from there dedicated all my time to finishing college.

Once I earned my degree, I tried to pursue a career in law but quickly realized it wasn’t for me. I picked up modeling again, this time working as a promotional model in addition to being a print model. After a few years into that path I realized that being an on-camera host and spokesperson is what I really wanted to do. So in 2013 I started taking classes from media and host coaches in LA, created a reel and sought representation. In fact you can watch The Elite Daily Show, where I co-host a few episodes! Hosting is truly my passion and I’m working on making it my full-time job.

What’s The Blog About?

This blog is about sharing my journey as a model and host and to talk about everything I find interesting in the world; travel, podcasts, TV, makeup, news, and whatever else comes to mind.
