About Me

Thank you for looking at my profile. I will start by saying, I am foremost an artist's life model.

It is probably my favorite type of modeling, I love the feeling of being the muse as an artists slaps paint on canvas or graphite on paper or recreates me from clay. There is something so raw and intimate about life modeling, I immediately felt really great about doing it the first time and have now been at it for over ten years.

I have also done photographic modeling, runway and performance art. and have some dance background as well. I have worked in print, promotion, and have been an acting & modeling coach. I have worked as an actor in theater and independent film/video projects. I have also performed as a living statue covered in body paint and done other performance art.

I am happy to do artistic nudes and other evocative work if I am inspired by your style and/or am reasonably compensated.

I am willing to travel, for compensated gigs, I just can't afford to do it otherwise, travel expenses paid up front would be ideal, but if I am able I will make arrangements to get to you for paid gigs.

If you are contacting me regarding work, here are some things to consider mentioning.

*Your name and Contact information [if you prefer something other than mm]
*Date of shoot or event
*Location of shoot
*Type of shoot (Life Modeling, Nude, fashion, lingerie, painting, etc or Theme)
*Destination (Portfolio, web, magazine)
*MUA, hairstylist, wardrobe- are any of these provided?

Find me else where: 

If requesting friendship, on FB, please send a message letting me know how you found me, often i won't accept if i can't see who a person is, we have little friends in common, and/or there is no accompanying message.

Feel free to like my artist pages, i am a graphic design student and artist.
