About MeI did my first photo shoot when I was twelve years old. I went on to do my first runway show with fashion icon Carolina Herrera (whom I had the honor of meeting) when I was fifteen at The Ritz Carlton hotel in Aspen, CO. This led to my introduction to fashion photographer Robb Gordon (http://www.robbaarongordon.com) and I obtained the first shots for my portfolio. I signed with a model management agency and continued to work in Aspen, CO. I did trade shows for sports apparel Obermeyer and was fortunate enough to meet Klaus Obermeyer. Then also at fifteen I met high fashion photographer David LaChapelle at one of his shows through a photographer I worked with named Robert Charbonnet (http://www.robertcharbonnet.com) who was assisting him. Although I did not get the chance to shoot with David LaChapelle he told me I was beautiful and that was when my confidence was boosted and I knew it must be true. Also I noticed a similarity between myself and Uma Thurman who he worked with. I also modeled for a local fur store and several other local businesses. When I was eighteen I travelled to New York to visit the agencies where I met another manager who flew me to Toronto for development where I signed with Ford models across the board, which also led to me leaving my acting agency in L.A. The Savage Agency. In Canada I began building my portfolio eventually switching to Next models and briefly moved to Montreal, Quebec. I was featured in several prom and hair magazines. I moved back to L.A. and signed with boutique agency Champagne Trott, now Vision. I was lucky enough to shoot with: Lionel Deluy Check out his credits with many famous actors and models (http://www.krop.com/lioneldeluy/#/). I left modeling to pursue another career, but continued to do shoots. I worked with designer to musicians such as NIN's Trent Reznor (among many others) Terri King three or four times. Then I modeled for a local vintage shop Enid and Edgar. I developed a relationship with headshot and fashion photographer Adrien Mckechnie who coaches me on how to set up legitimate Model Mayhem shoots.
If you are interested in shooting with me I would like to meet with you first. I only shoot with photographers who use makeup artists and either have stylists or a budget for wardrobe.
I am currently deeply involved in yoga and running. I'm looking to do something sexy without revealing too much. I do not shoot implied nudity or nudes.
Otherwise I want to be a part of building the story and I need a story to work.
Thank you for your time.
