I'm a 24 year old model born and raised in Austin, Texas. I grew up with an odd mix of hippie liberal parents with traditional values. I'm very into the retro style, particularly the 50's and 60's. My fashion idol is Twiggy due to her bold and unique look. If only I had eyes like that! I fell into modeling on accident and initially rather hesitantly. I had been studying at a coffee shop when I was approached by a photographer. After that it seemed like it just kept happening (a few weeks I was approached by the entire Bay Area Photography Club while I was buying a newspaper) until I finally decided it might be worth it to try it out as a real career. It's been a lot of fun and definitely a learning experience. It's helped me conquer certain anxieties while also learning how to properly regulate vanity, something I am eager to avoid. I do not consider myself some great beauty but if I can be involved in the creation of art and some how inspire others (while making a little scratch with it~) then I am glad to have been given this opportunity.
