About me
"I really enjoyed working with you.  Love your free spirit attitude and willingness to go all out for the shot!" -- Scott, JD of Austin

"Getting good pictures isn't a surprise when working with someone who's so willing to try things. Thanks again." -- Steve, Visual Delights

I grew up in a home full of painters, so you might say I've been posing my whole life. By choice, most of my experience has been in a fine arts classroom setting -- I love watching students develop their skills and using my body to help illustrate lessons and technical concepts.  But I've also found rewarding work posing for co-operative galleries, sculptors, individual artists, and photographers.

[[ Summary of Qualifications: ]]
• 9+ years professional experience, in addition to countless volunteered hours as a freelance art model
• Superior understanding of anatomy, lighting, art history, and classical poses
• Exceptional ability to develop poses, coordinate with other models, and utilize costumes and props
• Adaptable to a variety of artistic styles and levels of direction
• Excellent body awareness, flexibility, muscle memory, and comfort with nudity

[[ Body Modifications: ]]
• one full back tattoo (in progress - can be obscured with professional makeup)
• one small wrist tattoo (simple black lettering on inner right wrist)
• helix (18g) and earlobes (20g) of each ear both pierced once

[[ A Note About Nudes & Erotic Work: ]]
Most of my work is done nude - I have no reservations about posing nude for non-photographic fine art works.  However, due to the identifying nature of my prominent tattoos, I am very selective about posing nude for photography.  Pitch your project, show me examples from your portfolio, and I may want to be a part of it.  I am willing to work with other models, nude or clothed, in casual as well as romantic or implied erotic poses.  While I am open to the possibility of fetish elements in a shoot or work of art, I will NOT participate in any work that includes violent or non-consent imagery.  I am absolutely NOT willing to shave my pubic hair.  Thank you for understanding!
