Kay De Courval: Story & Interview

My name is Kay de Courval and I am 20 years old. I started modeling at 18 and actually landed my first magazine spread shortly after. Since then I have been featured in over 15 magazines worldwide! Some of them being PB Mexico, FHM, and Maxim. I got discovered by Celebrity/Fitness photographer Paul Venomous who took me under his wing and taught me everything I need to know.
