I started as an "actress" and have been in two short films and a promotional short, one of the short films won the 48 Hour Film Project 2013 for "Best Use of Character". I then went into modeling after being noticed by a photographer. My first taste of modeling occurred when I shot a promotional video for an event at the Korova in San Antonio, TX. I have done pin-up, glamor, fashion, runway, body paint, implied and lingerie. I am always looking for ways to expand and improve my portfolio and yours!
I am very easy going and easy to work with. You will find no diva behavior from me.

Looks I would love to try:
...and any interesting concept your heart desires!
Disclaimer For TFCD Work:
***All TFCD work will only occur if I get a copy of the entire shoot on disk with a print release. If I give you my time (which is also money spent getting ready) that's the very least I should be able to get. None of this pick 10-15 to be edited. No. I work for full CD's. It pays for my time, the money for gas/makeup/clothing/extras and helps me learn what looks good on me and what doesn't work for me. I am a photographer too and I always give the people I work with on a TF basis their full shoot because I think it benefits both model and photographer. If we don't know what the "bad" pictures look like then we don't know to correct it and not do it again...hence better pictures for everyone. So before contacting me, be sure to know I expect the full shoot or I will not work with you. Thank you for understanding.***
