Best way to reach me:  I can tend to ignore MM.  if you really want me...

I am a professional internationally published mostly retired figure model. I began as an art model a million years ago so know how to hold a pose for the 4x5 film guys and artists alike.  I'm a trained dancer and live on my toes.  Dancing, jumping, moving is what keeps me happy. 

Ive been fortunate in my travels across the globe to work with fantastic talents and also regularly work with hobbyists.  Each are equally satisfying and often just as creative.  I take pride in each shoot that i'm involved in, making it a fun and engaging shoot for everyone involved.  Modeling has become inherent for me, posing subconsciously and moving to the music in my head.  I'm always game for trying new things, challenging myself and creating images that evoke emotion, thought and beauty. 

PLEASE NOTE: $150 cancellation fee applies to ANY booking that is cancelled. Higher fee dependant on the duration of the booking.  Thanks! 

I'm also a photographer, working professionally in the commercial realm and shooting frequently in the fine art world.  My photography and art has taken me away from modeling but i'm still here so if you feel so inspired, lets make some art!
