HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
When I was 16 a friend of mine asked me to split the cost and participate in an all day photoshoot with her. Once I saw how amazing the pictures were I decided to try again on my own. I found Mike Lee (Polarpics) who shot my first solo series and introduced me to ModelMayhem. That's where it all started...
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
Playing dress up & trying out new styles I can't "pull off" in my everyday life. I enjoy meeting new people, photographers, make up artists or other models, there are some unique people out there! My favorite thing is seeing the finished results. Sometimes the wait can seem like forever but 99% of the time it's worth it!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I dig alternative styles, anything that "normal" people "don't get" or shooting implied nude to show off my tattoos.
I'm dying to try latex!
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
Casual/everyday clothes are boring.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
I love that they make me stand out from the crowd. You have to have a lot of confidence because people will stare but I love it. The more tattoos I get the more comfortable I feel in my own skin.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I'm a very good scrapbooker :) I save anything from shoots or everyday life that can be flattened and glued down to a page.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
ALL KINDS, my ipod is packed! I love punk rock, rock, hardcore, classic 80's rock, alternative, hip hop, dubstep & just recently attended my first rockabilly show! I looved it!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I enjoy watching horror films, getting tattooed, scarfing down sushi or Thai food, off roading & cuddling
