I am of Viennese-Czech origin, Catholic mother, Jewish father. I grew up in NYC in a musical home, my father after fleeing Vienna became the accompanist of the legendary opera singer Victoria de los Angeles, and his family boasted the important 20th century Viennese philosopher Edmund Husserl.
i graduated from the High School of Performing Arts NYC (FAME in film) as a young concert pianist and dancer and from the New York Barbizon Modeling School as a fashion model. I pursued a career in piano,classical ballet and egyptian belly dance until I left New York in 2000 for Casablanca Morocco. Before that I posed for various photographers in New York.
In Casablanca i pursued a career for the next seven years as a professional nightclub belly dancer, mostly as a house dancer of the Alhambra in Fes. I had been trained by Egyptian choreographer Mahmoud Reda in Cairo and Egyptian choreographer Yousry Sharif in NYC, the latter my teacher for 12 years.
I now live in Italy and pose for Italian and european-wide photographers and American photographers when I come to the States. I want to use Model Mayhem to get more photo shoots in Italy and Europe as well as in NYC, my home town to which I return frequently.
I am a mature model but you will see that 99% of my photos are kept unedited because I don't like photo shop on photos and prefer a natural look whenever possible. Some aging can be beautiful, I would argue.
On the other hand, I am very demanding on my side. I train every day in Russian classical ballet that I began studying on the upper West Side of Manhattan in Balanchine's school and then continued to study with Russian ballerina Vera Nemtchinova. On and off for twelve years I attended Vladimir Dokoudovskiy's New York Conservatory of Dance, which his wife Pat still continues to run in Soho and which I always attend when I am shooting in NYC. And of course hiking and biking around the Cinque Terre area of the Italian Riviera where I live for the winter months.
