HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
Soon after I turned 18, a friend of mine took a nude photoset of me outside, in the middle of January, on top of a frozen lake... it was insanely cold! It was a beautiful thing though. being confident enough to show my body on the internet was a great feeling, and it was such a rush! So I found ways to continue modeling.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
The creativity behind it all. most people think that as a model, you just stand in front of a camera. but it's not that simple or easy. It takes much more than just a pretty face to produce a good picture, and it's exciting to see the final product after the work you put into a shoot.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
I took gymnastics as a kid, and I used to do some photography of my own.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I love outfits that give 'attitude', and of course, no outfit at all. I have always been inspired by Victorian era clothing, but have yet to shoot in anything like that. maybe one day!
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
Plain lingerie or swimsuits. you see them everywhere, there's nothing really unique about it.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
I love the stories they tell. you can learn a lot about someone based on the ink in their skin.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I fancy myself a singer, although I'm not that great. I also write poetry, and I used to play the cello, but I gave it up a few years ago. I'm always meaning to start playing again though.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I like a little bit of everything, but classic rock n' roll is what you'll usually hear me listening to. Pink Floyd and The Doors are two of my favorite bands. oh, but I can't stand country!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I love the outdoors. I'm all about hiking, snowboarding, and dirt-biking, and I love the beach. and I'm a huge nerd, so when I'm not outside, I'm inside playing video games. I'm currently in love with fallout: new vegas, portal 2, and the sims.
