About MeI am an experienced model who works mainly in Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland. I have experience in runway, fashion, pin up, glamour, alternative, cosplay, fitness, print, editorial, and action modeling. I'm currently booking for the Spring and Summer seasons for modeling, and I'm booking Summer 2015 for costume design.
Other than my modeling experience, I also am proficient at styling my own hair and make up as well as costume design. I have been designing my own costumes for artistic and cosplay shoots since 2012 and absolutely love it! I am also a classically trained musician in both paino and voice, and I have some ballet, jazz, and modern dance training. Finally, I have training in several different styles of martial arts as well. I bring a lot to the table with my experience and skill set, and I can offer much diversity with my modeling.
