HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I auditioned for a promo model group a few years ago. They sent me to get photos and I learned how much I enjoyed modeling. The photographer explained how I could get started on Model Mayhem and taught me how to work for the camera. I never expected to be where I am now.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I love the artistic part of creating an idea and capturing a unique moment. I truly enjoy modeling and transforming into a character in a photo or on the runway. I have also met and modeled for some great people such as Buffi Jashanmal who was on the show Project Runway and so many others.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
Since childhood I have been involved in acting, dance, art, writing, poetry, literary magazines, and competitive singing groups. I also have a B.A. in Literature so I indeed have a passion for all things creative.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I love dresses the best. I love to feel feminine and I think they compliment my shape. For runway, I love flowing gowns that move when I walk. For photos, fitted retro dresses and cocktail dresses are my favorite.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I am not really into anything too masculine or androgynous looking. Other people can pull it off, but it's not for me.
CLASSIC PINUP HAS BECOME A HUGE PHENOMENA LATELY, WHAT ABOUT IT FIRST CAPTURED YOUR INTEREST?
I grew up watching musicals and old movies so once I saw pinup as a genre I naturally gravitated to it. I also love how it's sexy but leaves something to the imagination. The mystery makes it all the more intriguing.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
As far as modeling, I do runway shows, fashion, swimwear, hair, cosplay, fantasy, alternative, make-up and artistic projects. I am open to anything as long as it's not too risqué and is a good opportunity.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I regularly listen to metal, hardcore, EDM, classic rock, some pop and dance music. I appreciate and like many more styles of music however.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I love to go to concerts, design clothes, watch indie flicks, bake, exercise, go to museums, volunteer, and enjoy the outdoors.
