Watching documentaries, reading, writing, karaoke, people watching, eyebrow raising, and rattlesnake racing (just kidding with the last one… but i highly recommend YouTube searching it) 


-To take care of my mom 
-To live underground 
-To join the circus
 -To develop my craft and generate something that people will look at and have ANY response other than interpreting it as a quick flash of just another boring and clichéd project. I want to discover what determines whether someone looks twice and what it takes to elicit a mental or emotional response through my work. 
-Aspire to inspire before I expire

What was growing up like for you?  

Do you want a happy heart-warming story or the truth?  It was a nightmare (nervous laugh). I'm just lucky to have such a wonderful and supportive mom.

Do you see yourself as Model? 

Sometimes… There are times when being a living clothes hanger is all that's required and the focus is on the shape, drape, and movement of the garment and how to best display its features and other times when I get to separate myself and play a part to tell a story. I enjoy both sides.

When did you become involved in modelling and what do you love about it?

I love the excitement of working with different crews and traveling to different locations for projects. Its a non-stop source of inspiration.  Ive been modeling on and off for almost 7 years. Taking breaks and focusing on hair styling in between.

What would you like to do it more in the future?

 Travel. Runway. The thrill of performing is addicting. I would also love to do more eccentric avant-garde fine art. My dream is to work with Joel Peter Witkin.

Where do you draw inspiration from? 

The odd, eccentric, creepy, grotesque, unconventional, bizarre, deviant, queer, and rare weirdos that give zero fucks and stay true to themselves.


The Holy Mountain, Children of Men, anything by Tarsem Singh or Michel Gondry.

How would you describe your style?

 Space age, post-apocalyptic chic darkness. I focus on solid structures, silhouettes, drape. Always black. I'm very much anti loud colors/ patterns.

Are you a fashion brands girl or do you just wear what you like or whats comfortable?

 I'm crazy about Gareth Pugh, Rick Owens, Helmut Lang, Jean Paul Gaultier, & Thierry Mugler.

I tend to wear things that reflect my current mood. When I assemble an outfit that I love I won't hesitate to wear the same thing for days. NO SHAME.  In fact, I don't think I've worn any other jeans besides the Unif "Peach Pit Skinnies" from Dolls Kill since I got them. Cant seem to get enough of them.

Tales of love & lust? 

I fall in love with minds. Usually comedians… Bill Hicks, David Cross, George Carlin, Louis CK, Zack Galifianakis, and of course Jon Stewart. I can't help it.

In relationships I'm not a jealous person and I will not put up with someone who is jealous. 

What is it that you love most about being a woman?

  I'm not very girly. I do what i want.

What do you find sexy? 

Androgyny, feminine men, crooked/ gap teeth, Crispin Glover, late 90's/ early 00's Macaulay Culkin, scrawny fishnet & leather Trent Reznor, dark/ dry sense of humor, story telling skills.

 Is there anything you would change about yourself if you could?

 Ive been accused of being emotionally distant and detached… I would want to make those that it affects to feel less alone i guess.

When no one is around what are usually doing?

 Redditing, watching cat videos on YouTube, searching for new music, sending emails, setting booby traps.

If you were stuck on a desert island and your only shoe options were crocs or uggs what would you do?
