What it takes to be a hand model who earns $75,000 a year

RayMartell Moore has been a hand model for ten years. His hands have been featured in ads for Samsung, American Express, and Casper. His hands can get him $4,000 for just a few days' work, but that means he has to be extremely careful in how he cares for them. This means no cats and lots of manicures. We talked to Ray about what it's like to be hired just for his hands, and how the pandemic has changed his industry. Editor’s note: Insider interviewed Ray in November 2019 and again in July 2020.
