Where to begin?
Well, I’m kind of a unique, full-package deal: degree in fashion design and merchandising – worked with top designer critics from NYC while in college, and received industry recognition for senior project; assisted with producing fashion shows; graphic / surface designer; photo stylist; theatrical rigger, stage hand, and costume designer; currently own a business that specializes in producing floral treatments and décor styling for large scale and high profile events (recently had my work in the presence of VP Biden, among other notables); author - with a pending publishing deal; commercial holiday décor designer and installer…
I can personally load a 26ft truck to the door and then drive it anywhere with the greatest of ease; during the holiday season, I practically live on a 20' scissor lift; grew up in a family-owned business environment and worked as 'child labor' on construction projects - including, operating heavy equipment; proceeded to renovate 2 homes as a by-product of the prior statement…
I’m smart; funny; capable. I’m deeply Spiritual, yet I have a twisted and sharp sense of humor that runs thru my very core. I’ve been accused of being really 'intense', yet I’m not a drama queen...but, I may likely wear you out by 'running circles' around you - hence the, 'intense' accusations; left to my own devices, I’m more of a behind the scenes kind of personality - the ego doesn’t get much face time.
I travel whenever given the opportunity; I have a flexible schedule (ah, the joy of being a self-employed contractor); and, I’m a very fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of personality. I am passionate about music, favoring the rock genre. Pole-fitness? Yep. Skydiving? Check. White-water rafting? You bet. SCUBA diving? Damn straight.
Need a sure-footed, daredevil model who's neither afraid of heights, or of dicey locations? Look. No. Further. Oh yeah, and keeping true to my eccentric form, at the ripe 'ol age of 42, I recently starting taking aerial tissue lessons. (Who in their right mind *does* that, anyway?) ;-)
Yup. I love to 'fly.'
So, you’re wondering: with the above mentioned credentials and laundry list, why model? Quick answer: life…and divorce. In order for me to send my adorable, and super-bright kid to private school, I need to cowboy-up some extra cash as his father refuses to pay a single red cent; (he’s all for free public school, if you know what I mean. Do. Not. Get. Me. Started.)
My profile says that I don't model nude, yet my portfolio suggests to the contrary. Truth is, I will consider modeling nude, but it has to be the right fit. (Did I mention that I also clairvoyantly read energy?) [MM should consider adding a 'depends' option for the nude category for people like me].
Although the seemingly disjointed array of images in my portfolio might suggest to you that I am merely a well-rehearsed actress, nothing could be futher from the truth. In fact, I don't act at all; (would surely starve to death if it was a serious career path). So be aware that, what may simply appear to be little more than a staged theme is, in actuality, just one of the many aspects of my personality.
Yup, I'm a psycho-therapist's dream, alright. SO many angles to explore...
When you work with me, you get (most) every aspect of who I am as a soul. Sure, you might think that you're paying for some healthy, toned flesh, but when it's all said and done, what ultimately makes a notable and quality art image is the energy exuding from the soul within. It's up to you, dear photographer, to know it (and capture it), when you see it...because, it's there.
I’m unique with a capital U. Time spent with me is anything but staid and ordinary. And...although I'm technically a 'newbie' to MM, I am the consummate professional who's been molded by myriad life experiences. Translation: my dues have been long-paid, if you know what I mean.
Hire me. You won’t be disappointed. And likely, your life will not be the same afterward, (and you can take that as you will).
Shit, let's face it...if you've taken the time to read my blah-blah-blah bio thus far, your life has already changed; for starters, you're officially 3 minutes older. Tell me, was it worth the commitment? ;-)
TUITION'S 'HOUSE RULES'
Photographers: if you're interested in shooting with me, be prepared to send me a photo of yourself (looking into the camera). I like 'knowing' who I'm working with before I step in front of your camera. What can I say? It's an energy thing. No pic, no dice...no exceptions.
Friends: I deliberately have few in 'real life', so it stands to reason that I would have few virutal friends also. Comments, lists and tags aside, if your energy clicks, I click 'accept'. It's that simple. No offense.
Pole: I own a portable dance pole which is available for shoots; it accommodates ceilings up to approx 9' 6". The pole has two modes of operation: static and spinning. It is tension fit therefore no mounting hardware is necessary, however a level floor and a solid ceiling are required. Upon request, I will bring it to the shoot for an extra $100.
