HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING
I guess it started through burlesque, which I started doing when I was 19. We did pin-up shoots and burlesque shoots for our troupe (Sugar Blue Burlesque). I'd never really done anything before then. It was really fun and even though I don't do burlesque anymore I decided to get back into the modeling thing.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I enjoy having my photo taken! I don't know why. I also love love love getting to play dress-ups. Essentially that's what this job is, and that is pretty great. Was always my favorite game as a child. You get to become a character in a little world. It's similar to acting.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
I grew up doing dance but as an adult the only formal training I have is in Film & Photography! But I now prefer to be in front of the camera as opposed to behind it. I also did Art History for a few years, that was nice. I still dream of doing installations one day
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
Something extravagant and bizarre! The crazier the better. It's just fun. I also love really plain outfits like shorts and a t-shirt. Naked is good, too! Always thrilling.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
Anything that isn't at least slightly flattering on. Stuff that is ill-fitting. It's hard to pose and feel confident when you're wearing something that looks awful on you... unless the idea is to look awful... I also really dislike being tanned in any way, so if someone makes me tanned I feel pretty gross!
HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH SUICIDE GIRLS?
I was following a few of them on instagram & chatted to them a bit about it, I loved the look of their photos, found them extremely sexy and beautiful. Made me really want to do that. Looked like a nice community of women to be a part of, too!
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
I don't have tatts... yet. I have two that are in the design process still. I love the idea of wearing art. I also am weird and love the idea of being tattooed, I think it will be an experience.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I love acting and singing and dancing quite a lot. I also really love choreography, I might even enjoy that more than dancing itself.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I love quite a range but I think mostly I'm into folk, 30s jazz, old rhythm & blues, 60s garage bands, 70s80s punk. I also love quirky pop music, like Regina Spektor, Kate Miller-Heidke, Lana Del Rey. I like interesting song writers / music makers.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Mostly the things I do for a living! I also read a whole lot, I'm a total film geek, I play Dungeons & Dragons. I'm a bit of a geek, really. I like learning new things a lot.
