Thank you for taking a look at my page and the amazing collaborations I have had with great photographers.

I am a freelance model with over 15 years experience - I have been modeling professionally since I was a kid. I love bookings that offer interesting, unique ideas and have fun working with visual artists of all kinds.

I am easy-going, on time, a great communicator and the utmost professional. I take my job as a model seriously, but also love to have fun while shooting. It's the career I've come back to time and time again... because I love it and it inspires me!

My home-base is in Sacramento, CA, but I am a travel addict and love shooting throughout the United States and abroad. Reach out if you are interested in having me travel to your location. If travel expenses are covered, my modeling rates are negotiable.

I am very experienced at doing my own hair, makeup and styling, but love to collaborate with hair/makeup artists, clothing designers, etc. I have several MUAH people that I work with regularly and am happy to provide recommendations for bookings in Northern California.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature cum Laude and Master of Arts in Psychology Magna cum Laude, both from California State University, Sacramento. Modeling, writing, and marketing keep me busy full time.

Please email me directly if you are interested in working together! [email protected]

I love working with photographers of all experience levels and creating photos from various genres, including fashion, lifestyle/commercial, glamour, artistic nude and fetish. 


*** I do offer reduced rates if you are paying for out of state or out of country travel expenses.
***I have three small black outline tattoos (one on my ribcage, one on the back of my shoulder, and one on my inner forearm) and no body piercings.
*** My hair is currently long and blonde.
