HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
It was kinda by accident. I never thought of my self as the pretty model material growing up. I was a dancer and a cheer leader who was seen as one of the guys. I few years ago I was seeing a guy who was in the military who was deploying and I wanted to do something special for him so I had a few pictures taken and I just fell in love with it. I knew it was something I wanted to get into and keep doing.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
Its kinds a rush to be in front of the camera. I love getting all done up. Between the hair, make up and the outfits I get to put on. I love the feeling of looking in the mirror and liking what I see. I love free rage shoots where I can be myself and show off my style and my personality.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
I have been dancing for 18 years. Everything from classical ballet, to street hip - hop. I think that my dancing background has helped a lot in modeling. it helps me pose and knowing how to move and position my body so it looks graceful and so on.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
Something that shoes off my tattoo's! I love them. I have modeled in just about everything from a sundress and cow boy boots down to just my underwear. But Id have to say that my favorite is pin up clothing. Anything from the 40's - 60's. I just love the style of the high wasted shorts and the dresses!
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
Sometimes when I'm not feeling so confident in my body I don't like some of the more raveling outfits just because like any girl I just don't feel it looks good on.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
Everything! I feel like the body is a blank canvas, When a painter has a blank canvas he paints it and creates a master piece. I just happen to walk around with mine. I think there a way for people to express them selves. You can really learn a lot about people from looking at their tattoo's or asking them the meaning behind them. I have a total of 5. A four leaf clover on my hip. The words " All you need is love, love is all you need" with a bleeding strawberry above it on my right rip cage. A ladybug on my ankle with a black heart in its wings & my big piece being my arm. Two skeletons embracing and kissing. I'm just getting started on my collection and can not wait to add more. I love them!
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I dabble in photography. I am no where near a professional but I'd like to work my way up there. I have taken a few shots of landscape's, of my dog, when my boyfriend will stand still enough him lol. I did a full shoot for my friends son for his 1st birth day a year ago. Its something that I know I can improve in so I look forward to doing it. I also am a part time make up artist. I love all of the different things you can do with make up!
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
It's mainly Rock, Metal, The Beatles, 80's hairband and But its mostly Screamo. Things like Parkway Drive, In This Moment, A Day To Remember, Sleeping With Sirens. Anything I can head bang to hehe but at the same time I wont hesitate to rock out to Katy Perry! Don't judge lol
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I love to read. I'm a total book worm lol. Girly teeny romance books are my guilty pleasure! I love to have random one person dance parties lol and of course I can't forget shopping lol
