About Me"Why do you model?" -- asks everyone.
"Because it is art," I say.
Art, of course, has different meanings to every person. But to explore the sacredness of the human body, whether draped and accented with cloth and metal and paint or in the shining form of nudity, to create a record of my journey throughout this world, is by default "art," in my mind. "Genre" does not matter so much as "does this reflect a part of my inner soul?" -- and since a soul is made of different facets, that shines forth in anything from alt to lingerie to erotic nude. I am happy to take the time to try new, different, and/or "scary" roads, looks, and ideas with people who are respectful of the energy that is put into projecting inner thoughts, emotions, and reactions to where it can be seen with the naked eye.
I am an artist, actor, singer, and do voice work. In terms of style, I trend more towards classy/snappy androgyne -- tails and ties rule the wardrobe more than skirts and necklaces. I do a lot of work with body acceptance, and prefer to work with people who are interested in the same. I might be persuaded to get into a dress, but it has to be for the right shoot with the right person. If I had to choose one style, and one style only, to live with for the rest of my life, the only answer would be steampunk! "Just brass and copper, leather scrap, and rusty gear,*" as the song goes.
I'm trying to learn as much of the many facets of modeling as I can, but I really prefer to to erotic/fetish works – and I have experience in those outside of this part of my life, and I'm comfortable doing a wide variety of shoots with things like bondage. Nudity is also generally not an issue, provided we're in a safe place.
Contact info: I'm pretty easy to get hold of -- the easiest way would be to send me a message, and then I'll probably move it to personal email or instant messenger. I live in the Olympia area, but am available in pretty much the greater Puget Sound – Marysville and Smokey Point to Redmond to Bremerton to Tacoma to Olympia.
Important note if you're looking for body painting: I *am* allergic to latex, and so that fairly traditional medium is sadly out of reach. However, for other types of paints or materials, there shouldn't be a problem. Please ask if you're curious!
Also, even though it's not displayed in my portfolio yet, please note the ticky box that says "I am bald." Yes, I shaved my head, and it will stay that way for some time, at the least.
*Abney Park's song, actually -- "Steampunk Revolution."
