About Me

I did my first photo shoot when I was twelve years old. I went on to do my first runway show with fashion icon Carolina Herrera (whom I had the honor of meeting) when I was fifteen at The Ritz Carlton hotel in Aspen, CO. This led to my introduction to fashion photographer Robb Gordon ( and I obtained the first shots for my portfolio. I signed with a model management agency and continued to work in Aspen, CO. I did trade shows for sports apparel Obermeyer and was fortunate enough to meet Klaus Obermeyer. Then also at fifteen I met high fashion photographer David LaChapelle at one of his shows through a photographer I worked with named Robert Charbonnet ( who was assisting him. Although I did not get the chance to shoot with David LaChapelle he told me I was beautiful and that was when my confidence was boosted and I knew it must be true. Also I noticed a similarity between myself and Uma Thurman who he worked with. I also modeled for a local fur store and several other local businesses. When I was eighteen I travelled to New York to visit the agencies where I met another manager who flew me to Toronto for development where I signed with Ford models across the board, which also led to me leaving my acting agency in L.A. The Savage Agency. In Canada I began building my portfolio eventually switching to Next models and briefly moved to Montreal, Quebec. I was featured in several prom and hair magazines. I moved back to L.A. and signed with boutique agency Champagne Trott, now Vision. I was lucky enough to shoot with: Lionel Deluy Check out his credits with many famous actors and models ( I left modeling to pursue another career, but continued to do shoots. I worked with designer to musicians such as NIN's Trent Reznor (among many others) Terri King three or four times. Then I modeled for a local vintage shop Enid and Edgar. I developed a relationship with headshot and fashion photographer Adrien Mckechnie who coaches me on how to set up legitimate Model Mayhem shoots.

If you are interested in shooting with me I would like to meet with you first. If you are good I can usually get away with doing my own makeup and sometimes I have something to wear. If you have a very specific look in mind that's different, I don't have the money to split it now. Maybe in the future if I can get a job at Crossroads, which's where I want to work. Then I could do more photo shoots, because I could buy a few pieces on discount. I'm flat broke right now.

I am currently deeply involved in yoga and running. I'm looking to do something sexy without revealing too much. I do not shoot implied nudity or nudes.

Otherwise I want to be a part of building the story and I think it's fun to come up with it together.

In addition. Most of my best work has been done on TFP shoots. I like the spontaneity, the originality, and the sense of humor we can show. I also enjoy meeting new people and bringing something different to the table. Once we commit to something we definitely commit, imo. Either one person is going to take us down during the process or everyone is on board. What I mean is I think it's important to either agree to something mutually beneficial, which happens with some spontaneity during the shoot.

I like natural shots.
