HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
Meeting up with local photographers, usually winging it we would shoot hundreds of pictures. Sometimes I'd pack a whole suitcase of different things I could wear, or I'd go to a thrift shop and get inspired by a neat hat for a shoot idea. I have been lucky to have had such creative talented friends help me in different ways throughout the past. It was a weekend hobby that fortunately progressed once I became a Suicide Girl and gained more experience as a model.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I don't 'model' or represent anything but myself. I just do my thing, put it out there, and if people like it excites me.
