1. What is your name and where are you from?
My name is Tyra Byndom. I was born in St.Louis, MO and raised in the Bay Area, CA. I currently live in PHX, AZ but I'm always visiting the bay.
2. What is your zodiac sign and favorite color?
My birthday isso I'm a Taurus. My favorite colors are purple and black.
3. Tell us about your life as a model.
I've been modeling for a little over a year now. I started helping out my friends with their clothing lines and then I decided I really wanted to make it big in the modeling industry. I took my own time and money and invested in myself to make sure my pictures are everything I expected them to be. I've worked with some great photographers so far and I appreciate the knowledge they have given me as a beginner model. I can now say I'm published in a few magazines and I plan to do so much more in the future.
4. Are people generally surprised when they find out that you are a dog trainer?
Most of the time people are really surprised because it's not commonly heard of. I am constantly learning and working because I'm very passionate about dogs and training them to be the companion any person would desire.
5. Why did you choose to be a dog trainer?
During college I was working as a vet assistant and realized I wouldn't be able to make that my career because I couldn't stomach the procedures. I needed to find something else that still enabled me to help dogs. Instead of animals coming in with broken legs and almost dying, I wanted to help change their unwanted behaviors and help them accomplish their fears from their past. I decided to go to school to become a dog trainer. Teaching and helping these challenged dogs to be a better dog for their owners/families.
6. How can people reach you on social media and are there any places they can see your modeling pictures?
I can be contacted on my main Instagram - @tyrabyndom and modeling page is @thabestofty. You can find me on Facebook and Model Mayhem by searching my name - Tyra Byndom.
7. What is life like as an exotic dancer?
As someone who's played the role of the good girl for as long as I can remember, becoming an exotic dancer wasn't part of my plan. It all began at amateur night that my friend begged me to go to at Brass Rail in Sunnyvale and after that night I became hooked. I started going to pole dancing classes, practicing moves to get them perfect, and eventually buying my own pole. Once I got into a strip club I quickly settled into a routine — introducing myself by my stage name, getting to know the regulars and people who just stop by for a quick show, and hustle by working the room and using every opportunity to make money. I didn't expect how much I would like dressing up and giving guys a fantasy. Most importantly dancing has helped me appreciate my body for what it can do, rather than just what it looks like.
8. What is your most awkward moment as an exotic dancer?
I was doing a private dance while this man around 40 years old proceeded to take all his clothes off. I looked at him in shock once I realized he was booty ass naked. He said "I didn't know what to expect so I was just getting comfortable." I had to then explain the rules and conduct in my private room. I thought him being older he knew what he was doing; he either was playing dumb or really didn't know.
9. How do you know if a person genuinely wants to support you and not just want to be an opportunist?
A person that genuinely wants to support me will have my best interest in mind and support me without being judgmental or having to ask them to. It's really hard to actually know who is truly genuine. I go based off people's vibes during conversations whether they are trying to get to know me as a person or just trying to move fast to get something that isn't up for grabs.
10. What makes you a hustler?
I work and grind away until I’ve squeezed every last bit of juice out of a lemon. I quit my 9-5 job and took a risk by chasing my dreams instead of sitting in a cubicle making other people's dreams come true. I know I have so much more to give and accomplish, so I'm always ready to execute and hustle because nothing in life comes easy.
