I don't want to sound harsh but you aren't built like a catalogue model so will struggle to get on anyone's books. Only thing I can suggest is some direct marketing of yourself to web based retail companies but I've got a feeling it's going to be hard work to get one company interested never mind enough for you to make much money.

Perhaps google some agencies and send off some pictures? I only ever applied to one agency and they tore me to shreds but that was a glamour one years & years ago and I've done alright for my self since however I definitely don't do catalogue modelling so don't have much advice there sorry. Agencies are definitely your best bet tho :-)

* You're
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

I dunno, you could have mentioned is that the Yiddish spelling, since Scott's banged on about Judaism (and dislike of Christians) in the past.

Primarily two things will affect your chances of gaining paid work:-
1] The type of modelling you are willing to do and
2] Your suitability for the work type you are interested in.

Click this link and check out the statistics and work preferences of the models with most recommendations in your area - if you can find a match for both it should give you some idea what route you would need to go down to get paid work.
