About me
Video of me working: http://vimeo.com/89790738

I pursue the creation of dreamlike images that seem to be from a different time and a different place that triggers a deep sense of nostalgic reverence while remaining slightly mystical.

I do promotional images for local designers, make-up artists, hair stylists, wedding and glamor photographers, fine art photographers, and I have done images for gallery exhibitions. Contact me for rates if you would like me to model for promotional purposes or for gallery exhibitions.

I am a certified yoga instructor, burlesque performer, and dancer with six years of professional freelance modeling experience.

One of my favorite quotes on photography and modeling is that off the 18th century daguerreotypist (operator) Johann Kasper Lavater.  Lavater states that the main goal of photography should be to explore "...the interior of Man by his exterior -- of perceiving by certain natural signs, what does not immediately attract the senses."

Here are some projects that I am conceptualizing and that I need a photographer for (contact me if you're interested):

Waterhouse, "Lady of Shallot" Project: I love Waterhouse's paintings and especially the poem and myth around "Lady of Shallot". I really want to work with a photographer who can capture images that evoke this type of fantasy and mystery.

Contact Improvization Project: I love to dance. I'm especially interested in modern dance. I would love to do a photoshoot with other models where we work with contact improvization, which is basically using the other person's body creatively to expand the movements of your own body. I would also consider doing a dancing photoshoot on my own.

Mirror Project: I'm addicted to mirrors and the properties of mirrors.  I want to do something in darkness with four mirrors positioned in a diamond shape and tilted outwards with a light above and my body in the center.  Kind of an Alice and Wonderland "trapped in the mirrors" type of thing.

Written Words Project: The Chinese write poetry on their lover's body as a sensual/tantric practice.  I'm a writer, and I love words.  I would love to do a shot with writing all over my body.  One idea that has always interested me is writing (in very small letters) a word on the eyelid where eyeliner would usually be worn.

I am looking to collaborate with clothing designers, make-up artists, and creative fine arts photographers. I am also happy to model for photographers who want to build up their portfolio for commercial photography and I charge a low hourly rate. Contact me about any and all inquiries and I will respond within a couple days.
