HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I got started as a model for friends of mine who were artists and photographers in college about 6 years ago. For there I figured hey I can make some extra money doing this! So I started booking gigs as an art model and from there just got really into it! I started doing styles that I liked personally and it just took off from there.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I love "playing dress up" I also am a dancer and I like to have images of the costumes I put together and of me in dance poses to use for that aspect of my life, I also love meeting so many great artists continuously and have made a lot of friends via the modeling industry.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
Yes, I was always an artist dabbling in different mediums and even in college attempted several majors (fashion design, photography etc) before discovering that creating art with my body (via both dance and modeling) is truly my passion.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I love modeling in my belly dance garb especially with fire the best- I have a lot of fun with it, although anything funky, eccentric or even time period I will have a blast with. I also enjoy being body painted!
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I hate and will refuse to do or wear anything trashy, or tacky. I won't model in those silly slutty Halloween costumes lol or any stripper type costuming etc.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
I think they are beautiful it is permanent artwork and is a person really showing their "true colors" so to speak- we put who we are and our life stories on our bodies, although sometimes symbolic and only understood my us.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
Dance- especially bellydance.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I know everyone says this but I actually do listen to all types of music, Rockabilly, electronica, hip hop, classical and many many more it really depends on my mood. My mood and sometimes even the weather will dictate what I put on.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I am obsessed with traveling I love to go places, I have driven cross country 5 times already and plan to do more. Even just a day trip I like. I also love being outside- but only when it's warm out- hiking, swimming, camping etc. Although I am a nature girl I do like to get dressed up and go into NYC too :)
