HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I started modeling when I was 13 years old. I was signed to an agency in MiamI FL and one in Paris France until I was 18. I did commercial print work, videos, high fashion stuff.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
The creative side. Its where I can express myself. I've been free-agent since I was 20, so I've had lots of freedom to do the kinds of modeling I want without someone telling me I can or cant cut my hair. I also get excited to try new types of modeling, I hate being put in a box of one genre.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
Don't really have a favorite, I suppose outfits where I can really show my love for fashion. I style 95% of all my shoots, and its my favorite part, so clothing in general is a passion, cant pick favorites!
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I don't really dig outfits with no personality. if you told me to do a shoot in a t shirt, I could rock it, but let me put on a hat and a ring on each finger, and some crazy makeup first!
WHAT KIND OF SHOOTS WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK ON IN THE FUTURE?
Right now I'm really into super styled shoots that have a story. Kinda like a fashion editorial you'd see in a really edgy European magazine.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I have done burlesque for the past 6 years, but am kinda on a break from that. I also am the co-owner and women's designer of Night Owl, a clothing company specializing in cool vintage graphic t shirts, leggings, and custom designs. My newest creative venture is acting. I just got cast in my first role as a go go dancer in a grindhouse film called Cry For Revenge. I'm stoked!
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I LOVE music. the kinds you will find me listening to on a daily are soul,surf rock, I adore The Cramps, 60s girl groups like the Ronettes, 90s rock like Nirvana and Soundgarden, Jazz, I love Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong, Sam Cooke is one of my obsessions, Elvis of course, and also punk like Rancid, the Misfits, the Ramones...and then I also am a huge fan of Led Zeppelin, The Doors, CCR, MC5, Tom Petty, I'm really into the Black Keys right now....I'm all over the place. But its gotta rock. keep that country and pop to yourself. not interested! :)
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I love to go dancing, I like to make collages for my wall, play with my dogs, watch movies,take photos,and eat pizza!
