HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I started a long time ago, with Rolf. I was in a photography class and in those days we had to get our film developed into slides. Rolf worked at a local photo shop and asked me to model for some projects. They were fantastic shots taken on an old medium format hasselblad.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
What excites me is good art. I don't 'model' often or even consider myself 'a model', but I still can't stand to see bad photography. If I can bring something unique to a project, I'm all in. But I'm not about to just jump into any frame. That to me is NOT exciting.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I do love the alternative look, but as I get older, I really like the way I look in warm earthy tones. I like to try new things, so if that means new outfits, cool.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
Too much nudity with no purpose, faked emotions, point and shoot where the model just stands there. Outfit wise, anything cheesy, boring or tired.
WHAT KIND OF SHOOTS WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK ON IN THE FUTURE?
I'm really just about doing something interesting that suits my personality and the photographers idea. I'd love to get into more latex and add some of my physical flexibility to that. I also haven't shot in my belly dance gear yet. I've had some interesting macabre ideas but I'd need the right photographer to pull them off. I'd love to do anything old-school circus Side Show related.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
A lot of artists paint pictures of me, for whatever reason. Myself personally, I make jewelry, alter clothes, and dance, but only when the creative urge strikes me.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
Mainly anything with a fusion style, something different. Usually not in English. Upbeat party world, gypsy, anything with accordion. It has to sound good, and if there are lyrics that matters too. I'd rather listen to NPR than the radio music that's been on for the past few years.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Chemistry, though I suck at it. I like anything science related. I love nerds. Use those brains! I like to do anything physical, dancing, stretching, running, zumba, rock climbing, kyacking, hiking, but I'm not into organized sports. I like to meet new people and discover interesting things about them and their groups. I like to voice my opinions and make people laugh and I love to read.
