"Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
It amazes me that so much can be expressed or that a story can be told through simple body language and a lasting glance. Modeling gives me a chance to express my "alter persona" without words, which I very much enjoy. I am very down to earth. I don't believe someone needs to be a certain weight or height to feel beautiful. It's what's inside that you project outward.
Experience-- From the age one until about 10 I did a good bit of pageant work but got bored with that pretty quick. What can I say my family made me?! After that I signed with a small agency and did some local commercial and catalog work. I've worked with some great photographers all over the east coast. I've posed for several artistic, fine-art and glamor workshops. From time to time, I will also do promo work for clothing, concerts, automotive companies, food & beverage companies, beer & liquor companies, and charities. References are available upon request.
When I'm not modeling-- I also absolutely adore music & love to sing. I have 5 years of vocal training and I like to write my own songs. Staying active is also a huge part of my life! Swimming, hiking, biking, dancing, and yoga are my favorite ways to stay fit!
Random Facts (That may or may not be useful)--
- My ethnicity is a mix of German, Pacific Islander, and Native American.
- I don't have tattoos or noticeable scars and only my ear lobes are pierced.
- I can belly dance but you'll have to bribe me to see it.
- I wear black framed, geeky, emo glasses in my daily life. I don't like to wear them in photos (as you can tell if you check out my port).
- I’m a free spirit, a modern day hippie of sorts. I am very optimistic. People constantly tell me that I smile too much. I'm very laid back and absolutely adore a good laugh.
- I enjoy collaborating with other models and make-up artists. Let me know if you'd like to create some art!

"When did you know you wanted to be a model?"
"Well I guess it all started the first time I went through the second grade. I caught my reflection in a spoon while I was eating my cereal, and I remember thinking "wow, you're ridiculously good looking, maybe you could do that for a career."
"Do what for a career?"
"Be professionally good looking."
Hahaha... if you know what movie this is from we can be friends
