HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I've always wanted to model but never had the balls till recently. I always laid back and let my boyfriends decide what I could and couldn't do, until I realized that was complete BullShit! So I haven't looked back since <3
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
Man, everything. Traveling and getting to meet creative people and do things that normally I wouldn't get to do in my every day life. When I model I get to embody whatever character I feel like being that day so that's a very exciting thrill for me.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
Not necessarily training in the arts I mean I've had a few dance classes when I was little but that hardly counts. :P
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
Pretty dresses. I'm really girly and love Lolita styled clothes but then again I love latex corsetry. Generally I have "fashion split personalities" and whatever goes today will be completely different tomorrow.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
Ummmm sweats? haha well anything that isn't at least a LITTLE tight. Even when I'm feeling androgynous I still like to show off a little curve somewhere.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
My family can be a little uptight and judgmental. I am very out there and into creative outlets and art. So for me tattoos are a way for me to show uptight individuals that life is short, appreciate what you love and know that just because someone is tattooed that doesn't make them hard and mean.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I paint. I love to draw when I have enough time to focus on it and my favorite painting mediums are acrylic and watercolors.
Fun Fact: I almost made my modeling name "Acrylic"
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I always love indie rock and super girly tunes. But the general theme to the lyrics always seem to be generated towards sexual expression hahaha a few of my favorite songs include "I Get Around" by Dragonette, "Sex Bomb" by Spinnerette, "Take off your clothes" by Morningwood and "Set it Off" by Peaches. Sexy music makes me feel confident.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Photo shoots are my fun. :D In between working full time and 9 units of school my days off are littered with stilettos, bandage dresses, glitter and lots of ruffles.
