I am a full-time freelance model, event host, actor and writer/editor. Timeliness, professionalism, and courtesy are the name of the game for me. I am available to travel for the right gig and compensation.
I specialize in beauty, commercial, art, and alternative modeling. I always enjoy the opportunity to create beautiful and thought-provoking imagery.
Also, please enjoy my debut music video appearance for Kayvon Zand's "One Way Flight" directed by Mike Ruiz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2iyvyPKA4aQ
::::NOTICE:::: I have set my age younger to accurately reflect my range so that I'm not filtered out of searches. Although I am now 30, I look quite young for my age both in and out of photos, and best portray an age range of 24-28 years. My face has never been edited to look younger, hence the numerous behind-the-scenes and makeup-free shots on my profile page. I have no tattoos (until late Spring 2013) or piercings and my skin is generally well-behaved. I believe in taking care of myself, so I don't smoke or drink, and I'm willing to tackle just about any task no matter how uncomfortable the position, how long/late/early the shoot, or how hot or cold the studio (or lack thereof) is.
I am VERY selective when it comes to TFP. Since moving to NYC I am largely seeking paid work and thus only very rare TFP will be booked for exceptional cases.
Upcoming Shoots and Travel:
Los Angeles, CA, August 8-12th: BOOKING NOW
Allan Amato, DATES TBA
Santa Fe, NM, August 12th-18th: BOOKING NOW
For locations within the greater New York area (New Jersey, Long Island, etc.) arrangements can easily be made, as I still own a vehicle.

I can tightlace down to 20" in a corset and run/dance/walk in the highest of heels. In non-custom corsets I wear a 22" waist.
I have a large wardrobe of high-end latex, custom corsets, goth, Victorian, steam and apocalyptic clothing; and I can alter my hair easily with the aid of faux bangs, extensions, ponyfalls, and wigs.
While I am capable of some makeup and styling, I always appreciate the talents of a skilled MUA and hair stylist.
