About MeNewest and currently; I am an Exec and Founding memeber for Ubnappd. *Sounds like U been app'd* This is a smart phone app to help deter or prevent crime. This is launching soon and it allows me to work with schools on Anti Bullying, groups / charities for those Against Domestic Violence, Hate Crimes etc. More info at https://www.ubnappd.com/ss11
In my spare time I'm into many things. Restoring my 280Z, leather working, shoe design, but mostly designing ALTERNATIVE clothing with a fetish twist.
My sketches are way too fashion forward. I have this unfortunate ability of being 15 years ahead of my time. I designed leather kilts and tried to get butch women to wear them 15 years BEFORE Utilikilts became the fad... *literally*
CURRENTLY I have 4 of my own businesses. Yes, I said 4... Also in addition, I am an instructor at the New York Fashion Academy and teach there about once a quarter for those who are near graduation.
My fashion shows are NOT about a model able to 'walk' a runway. They MUST also be a confident performer, dancer and comfortable in their own skin. Most likely ~ comfortable not wearing much. Bonus for those into industrial / goth music and are able to transform themselves into being a performer or character at a moments notice.
I am here to show the world or at least, whomever is watching, that a fashion show must be a performance piece of art. We have music and video, lets make our own show... And be dark, sexy, scary, but interesting and thought provoking to say the least. You can look me up by name on YOUTUBE to find some video of past shows.
If you model for me... I can NOT compensate you, so please don't assume. Thank you.

Any promoters wanting to add fetish / alternative to your shows can contact me but I am ONLY DOING PAID EVENTS. Travel, accommodations etc need to be covered. This is up for discussion based on case by case events.
And last, I don't enjoy starting a conversation for having custom work done for 'cheap or free or trade'. I have to buy the materials and take the time to make such things. I've done the 'starving artist' and I am not looking to attract that into my life any longer. So please don't ask if you can get something 'cheap'.
