About Me

Currently I am in the process of updating my book/promotional materials and am accepting TFCD shoots that are applicable, particularly those in vintage and pin-up themes. If you have an especially unique idea, please tell me about it. I will try my best to book as many TFCD shoots as possible within scheduling feasibility.

As a lifelong dancer and a model for over ten years, I am extremely comfortable in front of the camera. I am open minded, creative, and I genuinely enjoy collaborating with other artists to create awesome images. Wardrobe wise, I have a fairly extensive collection including dresses of various formality, hats, gloves, some props, etc. I also have an art studio in downtown Jersey City, accessible by public transportation 24/7. It is next to a park and has windows with lots of natural light, as well as a simple black sofa. Please note that at this point, it is not outfitted with proper studio lighting. I share it with another artist who may be present in a very unobtrusive manner; He is a photographer as well, and can be of assistance with the shoot if need be.

My ears are pierced from lobe to cartilage on both ears and I have numerous tattoos, including chest and rib pieces, a back piece on my upper back, and the beginning of sleeves on both arms.
