American born girl of a family lineage from Finland and Croatia
A California girl since I was born, currently in Los Angeles. Fortunate to travel with my line of work however! Let’s say I enjoy the nomadic life.
Day job (what pays the bills):
I am a full time Model believe it
or not! And recently landed an amazing opportunity and career with Sirius XM
satellite radio channel 40, Liquid Metal! (Thank you to my mentor, Jose
Mangin!) I aim to hold both amazing careers for my lifetime.I would however love to be a TV Hostess and
travel the world teaching about different cultures with dashes of Physics and
music talk intermingled.I think it
would be a fun way for children and adults to have an educational program to
watch. But we’ll get to the science part later in this interview…
Exploring the wilderness.Nothing that I have experienced can compare
to the adventure of packing bare necessities and spending at least a few days
in the wilderness.Whether a relaxing
camping get away or a long backpacking hiking trip within the wild
mountains.It is my sanctuary.
I also enjoy writing, Muay Thai, playing
instruments, sky diving, racing cars, reading, and most importantly never stop
having fun and learning new things about this world we live.
At the end of the day,
I would love to continue modeling and entertaining the general public through
radio and TV.But my lifetime goal
whether I achieve it or not is to honestly achieve the Nobel Peace Prize and/or
the Nobel Prize in relation to my studies and future achievements in Physics
and possibly Astrobiology.
My handsome and intelligent fellow
and I share our hearts.
I am currently enrolled with a
University to obtain my Degree in Physics.
I am and have been extremely interested in the study of Physics,
Astrophysics and Astrobiology since I was about 6 or 7 years old.
What was growing up like for you?
My childhood was fantastic, to be
completely true. My parents, sister, and
all relatives have always been wonderful and if any one word could describe my
childhood it would be laughter and love.
My friends all were very diverse and I think having them, and a strong
family kept my values, integrity and happiness stout.
Do you see yourself as Model?
I see myself as expressing myself
through modeling as a painter sees their canvas.
When did you become involved in
modeling and what do you love about it?
I first entered modeling when I was
about 13 years old, I landed a Manager and Agent but quickly cut away from the
contract.I was too young and insecure
about my body and knew it would be tumultuous if I continued.
Fast forward a few years and I
“accidentally” fell into modeling again when a friend of mine asked me to help
her with her college photography assignment and if I would pose some pinup
shots for her. I agreed, and from those
simple photographs I began to get hired by a few small retro inspired clothing
companies. Seven years later I now am
able to make a living from modeling and it has given me so many wonderful
opportunities and learning experiences.
What would you like to do more in
I would like to continue modeling;
I am working hard right now to get into mainstream modeling.I feel it’s time the mainstream publications
accepted talented models who also happen to have tattoos. I’d like to continue
my work in satellite radio giving live correspondence on shows and interviews,
also just talking about music. Music will be a passion of mine forever.
Breaking into TV would be fun, like
I said I have a passion for teaching and making things humorous. Why not combine it all and share the
experience to the world?!
We women are extraordinary
creatures.What I find admirable in
women as of late is their ability to be secure in themselves and support other
women as well.To not bully or tear down
others.Not too many people in this day
and age have those characteristics unfortunately, and I find myself gravitating
toward friendships with those simple, yet enormous traits.
I draw inspiration within my every
day life. All of my adventures,
experiences and emotions go into my photos in one way or another. Nature, the universe, my thoughts, all there
in the photos you see.
How would you describe your style?
Comfortable and confident, with
tailored sophistication. Kidding, I just like to wear jeans and a tank top with
a pair of chucks (converse).It’s laid
back but hey, so am I.I get to play
dress up for a living, so when I’m living I’ll wear what’s comfortable.
Are you a fashion brands girl or do
you just wear what you like or what’s comfortable?
I have no preference in what brand
I’m wearing, as long as it’s fitted and I feel it reflects a bit of who I am
when I wear it, I’ll be into it. Confidence in who you are is the best “fashion
brand” anyone can wear.
Who would you say is your style
No one in particular, just the life
I live.Going to concerts, hot rod shows,
the beach, the lake, opera, whatever… It all inspires my fashion and it goes in
Top 5 clothing items you cannot live
Just a pair of good shoes, jeans
and a top and I’d be all set! Throw in a hair brush and lipstick for fun...
Tales of love & lust?
A classy broad never tells.
What do you look for in the
There’s a certain aspect of a man
which I find extremely attractive, it’s kindness. Along with kindness, there is intelligence
and confidence in himself with a nice helping of humility. I like a man who is
as comfortable being in the middle of the wilderness with his backpack and
sleeping bag as he is equally being comfortable at home and also at his place
of work. A well rounded man like that
who can smile.
What is it that you love most about
being a woman?
Our femininity! Giggling, curling our
hair, our curves, our empathy and strengths. All of those things and more.
Number one beauty product you can't
When no one is around what
is Ivy usually doing?
Being a goof, I like joking around
but I also like reading and relaxing outdoors, visiting with friends and
family. Dreaming of international travel.
Is there a public and private Ivy?
There is, only in the fact that I’m
actually really shy.Small talk is
awkward and I get beet-red embarrassed when given a compliment.I never thought I’d share that publicly haha,
but hey why not.
Are we likely to see a lot more of
you as a model?
Yes, absolutely. I feel like I’ll still be modeling when I’m a
senior citizen, it’s my creative outlet and I appreciate the art of
modeling. It’s very therapeutic and most
importantly it is fun!
What's your take on life and what
advice would give any of your fans?
My take on life is ever-renewing, I
strive each day to learn something new and just to accept what comes my way and
work with it. Fight for what you believe
in. Do not put others down. Try to understand someone or something that
you’d never want to or think you wouldn’t give a second glance. Compliment.
Help. Be active. Listen to
music. And most importantly, find
