HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I just used to adore looking at Suicide Girls and Front Magazine and loved the attitude and sexiness of the girls, one day I just thought: I’m going to try that! So I took a few photos of myself and sent them to Front who published them and I was beyond excited to be a part of something I thought was so cool.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I love that I’m taking part in something fun and sexy like the models I have serious girlcrushes on.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
I’m a computer scientist so not at all. But maybe there’s some geek chic in there somewhere.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I think just simple things like a t-shirt and knickers can be enough, it feels more spontaneous and raw. I do like a good pair of sky-high heels though.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
The way that they open a door to easy conversations with the strangest and most unlikely people. It’s a given that if I’m at a gig or a punk club someone will strike up a conversation about one of my tattoos – usually the peacock on my thigh – but I love that even the dentist or a train guard will often get chatting to me about them. It also never ceases to amaze me the kinds of people who have secret tattoos, or just wish they did.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I like sewing and baking so nothing too outrageous! Web design is a little side hobby of mine too, I made alerttheaudience.co.uk.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I never stopped loving pop-punk to be honest. But I’m also into alt rock and some folk, and always love some guilty pleasure pop music.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I like to live my double life as a techie businesswoman by day and a rock chick model by night. It’s not uncommon for me to be at a cocktail party one night and in the basement of a punk club the next!
