About MeI have been involved in the modeling world since I was six years old and followed my dad (a photographer) around to all of the model shoots. The next thing you know I'm hamming it up in front of the camera and enjoying every minute of the attention (my dad has the pictures and video to prove it! Oh, you don't even have to ask he'll be more than happy to share because I swear he must stay up at night coming up with creative new ways to embarrass me). Now I spend most of my time hamming it up behind the camera!
I've done runway work in Phoenix and Scottsdale and print modeling in California, Texas, and Phoenix. I am looking to get back to working regularly on catalog shoots and runway work. I can rock climb, snowboard, mountain bike, do pilates and yoga, wakeboard, ski, ride motorcycles, am an accomplished singer and guitarist, and am hilarious, any other questions please ask! (Yes, people tell me I look like Tina Fey all the time : )
I am looking to build my portfolio as most of my print work is from about 10 years ago. The photos on MM are all recent but my hair is now cut in a pixie style with my bangs just past my cheekbone and is dyed a very dark brown, almost black. I do have extensions and tons of wigs if short doesn't "cut it" for you! I'm a what you see is what you get kind of model (unless the photo has been obviously retouched for a particular "look") which means I have no tattoos, stretch marks, major scars, crazy teeth, extra pounds, or otherwise unseemly attributes. I've lost 20 lbs lately, so I'm actually thinner than many of the photos I have posted here. I say this only because of my experience as a photographer, there is nothing worse than having a model show up to a shoot who is totally unlike anything you expected! Awkward pause...
And now, drum roll please, my policy on NUDES:
I don't need photos of myself nude, and who knows, I might want to run for president someday. That being said, I have no aversion to nude art but prefer implied nudity when it comes to photographs of myself. I have select photographers or artists that I feel comfortable working with, but please, if your number one goal is to see another naked woman move on to the next model! Plus, I'm pretty sure you'd rather see a naked 21 year old vs. a naked 34 year old, I'm just sayin'...
And finally, I'm married so please keep it professional!
