HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FETISH/BDSM?
I have always been a fan of Bettie Page (we even have the same birthday if you can believe it!) and as soon as I turned 19 I had to check out the local fetish night to see what it was all about. After that, it was hook, line and sinker! I started working at a fetish club in Vancouver BC called Sin City Fetish Night and the rest is history.
DO YOU ENJOY FETISHISM/BDSM PLAY IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE, AND IF SO WHAT ARE YOU INTO?
Ooooh such a personal question right off the bat! I do indulge in some BDSM in my personal life, I have been suspended by rope before, and have played in our dungeon at Sin City Fetish Night (www.sincityfetishnight.com www.vancouverfetishweekend.com) as both sub and dom.
ARE THERE ANY FETISHES THAT YOU DON'T FIND APPEALING?
None that I’ve tried yet, the whole thing with fetishes is to keep an open mind so that’s what I try to do.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT FETISH MODELING?
In all honesty, I am a bit of a costume freak, so having the opportunity to play dress up and put on different outfits, wigs and makeup really gets me into a different mind frame. Its hard not to take on a persona when you have on a leather hat and a riding crop in your hand. I even did a photo shoot in drag where I was a man, and it was actually one of the most fun shoots I have ever done. I know a few people were a bit weirded out because I really “looked like a dude” but that was the point, and if I convinced you for a split second that I was a dude, then I’m happy.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
Well like I mentioned, I love costumey things, so dressing up in a specific era or theme is my favorite. I also love latex, corsets and pvc, I’m all about the shiny.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I don’t think I have really done anything that I haven’t liked. I really like the opportunity to be a chameleon, to me that’s what modeling really is. If I can take a photo and you don’t recognize me in it, then I feel like I have succeeded because having the same look over and over gets boring, I like to spice it up and do things that are different from each other, one day I’m covered in blood, the next day I’m covered in flowers.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
I love that I can wear artwork on my body. Art is so beautiful, so why wouldn’t you want to wear it on your body?
DO YOU THINK PINUP AND FETISH ARE BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
Absolutely. More so with pinup for sure, as it can be much more cute and playful whereas the word fetish can still draw shocked reactions from people who are more vanilla. For example, I was recently involved in an alternative model pageant at the Vancouver Tattoo and Culture Show (where I won second prize – yay!) and the turnout for the alternative pageant was a little lackluster yet the pinup pageant was really the main draw, and drew tons of contestants and also tons of participants.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I like pretty much everything, I have been DJing since 2008 and I find its good to have an array of tastes, that way you can please everyone and you don’t have to stick to any genres because there are no boundaries. I had a residency on Thursdays at Rock N Roll Highschool for a few years and I’ve DJ’ed at Glamour Trash, Sanctuary, a few Sparkle Parties and Sin City Fetish Night. They have all been super fun and upbeat, and I love watching people go crazy when their favorite song gets played.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I’m not sure if you have been to Vancouver before, but we have a beautiful park in the middle of our city, much like New York, and there is a bike path that circles around it that is right next to the open water. On my days off I love to take my bicycle out for a spin on the seawall and get some fresh air. When its not so nice out (hey its Vancouver, we are known for a few things and rain is definitely one of them) I like to go snowshoeing up on Mount Seymour because when you get to the very top you can see the whole city! I have a little Boston Terrier as well who keeps me on my toes as he is a little snortbag full of energy, so spending time with him at the beach is fun. I’ll be starting up beach volleyball in June for the summer, so you’ll be able to find me slathered up in sunblock with my all-girl team in bikinis next month. And of course, I love to travel. I’ll be in New York at the end of this month to help host a few of the parties during the Fetish Marathon from May 30- June 3. I’m super excited to be a part of the sexy party in one of my favorite cities in the U.S.A.!
