About me
My background as a licensed art teacher, art school graduate, and professional visual artist gives me a certain aesthetic literacy in my ability to refer to classical and contemporary artworks as inspirations for poses and props.

On the "alt model" front...I have thirteen tattoos, a number of piercings, and a black mohawk.

On the silly-floppy front, I have one dreadlock.

NOTE:
I've noticed a disturbing trend of alt models being photographed in the guise of sulky pre-teens. As a teacher, I find this "Lolita" style repellant--it disempowers grown women at the same time that it subliminally encourages the sexual exploitation of children.
NO LOLLIPOPS. NO TEDDY BEARS. NO PIGTAILS. NO CHERRIES.
Come on, man, I'm almost thirty! ;-) The thought of dressing up like my little students and looking coy makes me queasy.
Without being a snob/judgmental jerk about it (I hope), I feel very strongly that I only wish to involve myself in photography projects that are magically artistic and powerful--not cutesy, porn-y, and/or un-ironically trashy. No offense if that's your jam--just not my proverbial cup of tea! (written while drinking tea and eating gf cake with jam...)
Oh, and speaking of eating, I've lost a lot of weight since some of the photos in my portfolio were taken (at 5'6" and 127 lbs, my current BMI is 20.5), but still don't have a flat, magazine-ad stomach. Belly-haters be forewarned! If you're looking for some cheesecake idea of "perfection", you're either barking up the wrong tree or can spend five minutes in photoshop making my nipples point up toward a heaven that hasn't granted all of us flawless ta-tas!
I can be an exciting collaborator: I design/sew/put art on my own clothes, costumes, and jewelry (which someone just described as "art punk"), have a passion for putting intensely colorful makeup on myself and others (I'm usually wearing more glitter than six drag queens), and am attuned to using the body to attempt to express the ineffable through years of working as a figurative painter.

Thank you so much for your time and understanding, and I look forward to hearing from you and MAKING ART!
