HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I played around with photography from a young age, I was always setting up stuff around the house and putting my camera on timer to get photos of myself.
I always used photography as a way to express myself artistically and at age 17 I decided I'd put some effort into finding other people I could collaborate with.
So I set up a model mayhem account and they amazingly accepted my work of myself and I started looking for people in my area that I wanted to work with and promoted myself like crazy. Got lucky with the first shoot I ever did being with an amazingly talented photographer and it ended up getting published, and I've gone from there improving and enjoying myself as I go along.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
Being able to use myself to create art, like my body is a canvas that I can control.
I have so much fun working with other people and it's always a collaboration of art styles and visions.
I'm very diverse in my interests so with modeling it works really well,
I love being able to transform into so many different versions of myself...and sometimes even be a different person entirely.
I feel overall it builds up my confidence in an amazing way and I love getting to try new things all the time.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
I've been a dancer most of my life, I did ballet for many years and have tried a number of different styles since; belly dancing is my favorite.
I've also been playing piano since I was 8, I come from a very musically talented family.
My background in dance has helped me a lot in my modeling, especially being able to walk around in ballet boots with ease.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I will always adore wearing anything latex or laced, I also have quite the military fetish.
I love getting to showcase designers work of all sorts and I enjoy doing cosplay shoots.
HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FETISH/BDSM?
I don't know how it started or how I found it all at the time, but I remember even when I was quite young being obsessed with Apnea and Philip Warners work and my introduction to alternative photography and fetish fashion started, where as BDSM was introduced to me in one of my first relationships and I've been into it ever since.
DO YOU ENJOY FETISHISM/BDSM PLAY IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE, AND IF SO WHAT ARE YOU INTO?
Definitely, though unlike a lot of my photography where I appear to be quite dominating, I tend to be more on the submissive side in real life.
I'm very adventurous and always up for some bondage and getting roughed up, I can be a switch occasionally though depending on the situation.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
My full time job is as a graphic designer, I also hope to get back into performing/dancing professionally.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
My favorite bands tend to use multiple languages in their music, such as Gogol Bordello and Die Antwoord.
The styles of music I listen to varies from techno to folk metal, 50's to indie. I love it all.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I'm very social, I love to get out and adventure with friends and interact with people.
I love to dance, go out to the gun range, or sit around at home watching sci-fi or reading.
I also enjoy creating things, lots of stuff I make is either costumes or props for shoots, but I also love baking and making random art.
