HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I have been interested in modeling for as long as I can remember. My first photo shoot was when I was 17 with my Best friend Jeanette. We were invited to model clothing for Anastasia Chatzka. It was an awesome experience. From then on it was through friends and sites.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I would have to say the outcome of the photos. I like thinking of themes, locations, and makeup/hair. The thrill of seeing an idea in print is so rewarding. Its a form of art that I love being a part of.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
I have always been an artistic child and was in ballet, art classes, and I wanted to be a photographer. My parents and siblings can draw and they do art everyday in their own way. From music to food they are artistic. I have always drawn and painted. Then in high school/college I studied in many art classes and took lots of photography classes. I was always surrounded by art with school and friends. So I gain inspiration from all around me.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I prefer my own personal style mixed with fantasy and lure. I love feeling sexy and enjoy creating a character to portray in the photographs. Its a way to tell a story in one single shot.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I would say plain clothing and probably head shots.
HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FETISH/BDSM?
I would say probably when I was going to Goth clubs more and experimenting with my sexuality. When it makes you feel good its what you like.
DO YOU ENJOY FETISHISM/BDSM PLAY IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE, AND IF SO WHAT ARE YOU INTO?
Of course, whats wrong with feeling dirty every now and then.
WHAT TATTOOS INTRIGUE YOU?
Mostly the thin lined intricate ones, the swirls and dots, and ones with meanings.
