November 2013 update: Sorry guys, currently inactive, working on health stuff. I'll let you know if I come back to this
I do it for fun. I also do it for money. I do it because I enjoy art and I enjoy collaborating with people to see what kind of crazy stuff we can pump out. I'm an artist myself*, so I enjoy being able to help throw ideas around when shooting and also hearing what ideas the other models/artists/photographer have to offer. I want to make mouths gape. If I can make a person cry or vomit or laugh hysterically, awesome. I want to create images that you can't forget if you try. Raw.
I'm built like an Amazonian and I'm okay with that. Sometimes it works to my advantage. I like to play with guns, knives, snakes (I own a Ball Python), dynamite, duct tape, chains, and numchucks on rooftops or seesaws or anything else we can find that fits in a frame. I am very self-aware and have an objective viewpoint. Good models can do this for a photoshoot. I do this all the time. I am very aware of exactly what I look like at any given time. I make my living by looking pretty, so I have to.
I can pretty much rock a runway, and I'm available for runway work as well. I'm damn good in heels. Speaking of:
The best way to contact me is through this site. I check it quite a bit. I enjoy working with other models or by myself, so I am versatile in that respect. Basically, if you have an idea for something incredibly awesome, let me know. I may not be the right model for everything, but I know I'm right for some things, and those are the things I aim to make beautiful.
I am willing and able to travel pretty extensively provided that travel costs are covered. I love to travel. I may or may not bring an escort with me, but I reserve the right to do so. My escort just happens to be a model, and we work wonderfully together. I can travel (tentatively) up until August 2009, so let's hop on it and start booking!
I do change my portfolio up and add new photos quite often, so keep looking back for more stuff!
-5 nickel-sized dots on my right collarbone; black
-7 black lines around left ankle, varying widths; black
-Hindu "aum" on upper spine, just below neck; black
-11 swirls on the backside of my upper left arm; black
And that's all for now, but not forever!
I've been pondering on a few concepts I'd like to try. If you're down for any of these and have some great ideas and want to collaborate with me on them, please please drop me a line.
-Fantasy (My dreads now reach my butt. I've played Mother Earth. I'm quite fairyesque, and I want to show it).
-Nature Amazon/Ferrel woman type shoot. I am the proud mother of a 4-foot Ball Python. He likes to get his picture taken. Get the picture? Get ahold of me.
-Body art (I do body painting and I also model body painting).
-Anything '90s alternative styled (I'm in love with the '90s).
My "no nudes" policy is semi-questionable. I have done nudes with photographers whose stuff I really really like. I may do nudes in the future for photographers who pay extremely well** and/or whose work I really, really like and want to be a part of.

**I don't like to trade art for money. However, I'm a poor college student. Environmental Anthropology, if you're interested. Always looking for side jobs. Rest assured that my rates are reasonable and I will give you my all.
I also enjoy my time behind the lens, and have been expanding my photography portfolio more in recent months. My MM# for my photography portfolio is 1096704
. Check it out and get at me for any collaborations!
I have been incredibly fortunate in the time I've been modeling to work with many incredible photographers, stylists, makeup artists and wardrobe designers. Here they're listed in no particular order. Go check them out, because I've not worked with one person here from MM that I had a bad experience with. I'm sure they wouldn't mind shooting out a quick reference, too, if you need one. These people are great. Asterisks (*) indicate the number of shoots we've done together, if more than one.
