HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I believe I was about 16 when I did a photoshoot with a friend from highschool who was experimenting in photography. Alternative/pinup modeling always intrigued me, so I definitely wanted to try it.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I love colors, I love capturing a feeling like lust, subtle angst, happiness, etc. I have so much fun on shoots with hair and makeup, connecting with the photographer, working together.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
I've been singing since I was 5. I am shy around new people, but I always sing when I'm alone. It feels great.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I just recently tried latex with Dana Alyce, a fabulous up & coming photographer based in Baltimore. I love lace, mostly my underwear! Fur is fun too!!
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I can work with anything. I like to be covered in certain places, just like any woman, I have to feel comfortable and confident.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
I love the idea of marking memories. They are my warpaint.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I am currently working on putting together a music project with a good friend of mine, NY based DJ Renegade. You know, starting a band :p
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
Pop. Sugary, Cheesy, Cliche pop music. I am fascinated by Britney, Gaga, Cascada (or the teams behind them). Hip-hop, or what I like to call Pop-hop, radio rap. It's fun. I like to hear rock music when I'm in the mood. But I am just 100% a girl at heart, I need my dance tracks! I'm not ashamed of my music taste, I think some people take themselves WAY too seriously.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I like girls night out. Trashing hotel rooms and going to sleep at 8am. Young, fast NYC life. Party on!
