HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I started some modeling while I was just finishing high school, I had known a girl in my grade that was doing some modeling and it looked pretty awesome so I decided to give it a try. I always thought worst case scenario when I get all old and wrinkly I’d have some proof that once upon a time I wasn’t too shabby.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
The thought of being able to help someone’s artistic vision come to life is amazing. Getting to transform into different characters is really fun, it allows you to get a small peek into different lifestyles. Living the 9-5 clean cut corporate life is boring! Its fun to know that everyone I work with has no idea that I really love the Alt/fetish scene, its secretly empowering!
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
Not at all! I have done some photography just for fun, but other than that I’m nothing special when it comes to art. If you saw some of the pieces I attempt to create in my ceramics class in college, you would definitely understand but at least I have fun!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
Well I had stopped modeling for a little while, but recently decided to re-enter the world in my own way, I have a fascination with latex but I haven’t got to shoot in any yet, id say for now my favorite outfit would have to be anything that shows off my tattoos. I also really enjoy sky high heels and corsets!
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I would have to go with nothing, wearing nothing is my least favorite outfit. I'm extremely happy and comfortable being naked, but I generally prefer to not shoot nude, I have no issue with implied, and shooting with sheer materials, but for now at least I have no interest in baring all.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
Tattoos are another fascination of mine, The fact that they can help you express your individuality is awesome. Tattoos are beautiful and it’s a shame there are still people who find them unacceptable. I also think it’s crazy that some people believe that every tattoo MUST mean something, only one of my tattoos means something, all of my others are just art pieces I found to be so beautiful I had to have it on my body.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I listen to everything and anything! I tend to go through “phases” where for a certain period of time I will listen to the same genre, then I'll switch off to something completely different. I’m currently stuck in the death metal stage, but with the nice weather coming ill surely be switching to some reggae.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Living in an apartment with my boyfriend (and tattoo artist) and another guy friend, video games seem to be taking over. My current favorite has to be playing the Zombies game in Call of Duty, other than that just sitting around with some friends does the trick.
