About Me

Check out my featured photo on Model Mayhem Edu:
It features tips on Cinema Photography's unique vintage style and also offers some insights on working with me :)

I recently moved to Washington from Los Angeles! I'm so excited to be here and to find new talent to shoot with :)

NOTICE: As of September 25, 2012, my hair is a bright coppery red. It is cut into a short bob.

Both agency represented and self-managed. I have been modeling since 1996 with a few years hiatus while I was in college. Most of the pics in my MM portfolio are pretty recent (some from 2012, most from 2010-2011, and a couple are from 2009). Aside from my ever-changing hair color, I delete photos when I feel they are no longer an accurate representation of how I look.

I am currently accepting paid work (rates are reasonable, please inquire). I will do limited TF if your work will add something special and different to my doesn't hurt to ask. I promise I won't bite. If I friend request you then I am probably interested in trade with you.

I am a hard worker, punctual, upbeat, and courteous. I take direction well but I can also give you great variety without any guidance. I respect everyone I work with...I think we all have something to bring to the table and I will never give you any diva attitude. I can do anything from commercial/catalog to dark and moody. I recognize my figure isn't ideal for high fashion but I'm working on it :) I am told I give great variety of expressions. I am very experienced but humble enough to realize I will always have something to learn and room to grow.

I don't just want to pose...I want to make art! The more "artistic" the concept for a shoot the more interested I will probably be in doing it for trade. I realize "artistic" is a very subjective term, but I guess I mean I am more compelled by an image that is unsettling, controversial, or defies the traditional or predictable standards of beauty than I am the cookie cutter catalog or glamour shots. I also don't mind being cold, dirty, or in an uncomfortable position if it means getting an interesting shot. That being said, I think variety is important in a portfolio and I am happy to do the more traditional catalog/commercial type stuff too.

I will do very limited implied nudity...for me to do implieds with you I must feel very comfortable with you and your implied images should, in my opinion, be about form and beauty (or anti-beauty) more than sex. Regarding nudes, I think they can be very tasteful and beautiful but I am personally not comfortable doing them at this point in my life.

I also have lots of trade show/hair show/promotional experience, so consider me for your live events too!

I have a 4" scar on my chest that is usually not noticeable in photos but, if it is, it can be easily photoshopped. Feel free to edit it out or make it the subject of your photo...either way I won't be offended :) I don't have any other body modifications other than pierced ear lobes.
