Sex is currency. What’s the use of being beautiful if you can’t profit from it?

I love all types of modeling and performing...alternative, pinup, vintage, burlesque, fetish, glam, editorial, commercial, lifestyle, etc...I consider my signature style to be Fetish Couture.
How did you get started modeling?
I started modeling because photographers kept approaching me and suggesting to shoot. I actually started in college at 18 as a model/muse for a painter. The involvement in the arts and gallery scene led me to meet photographers who wanted to shoot. I think I am best known for my style of "fetish couture" photos, although I do all types of modeling from fine art nudes to commercial stock photos and everything in between -- glamour, vintage/pinup, gritty location shoots, fetish videos, as well as burlesque and b/indie movies and Dominatrix work. My stuff has been displayed across the US as well as Europe and India/Asia. I've been featured in several art and fetish books, a few magazines, including Maxim and Hustler and photos of me have been purchased by the The Kinsey Institute as well as the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Louvre.
What excites you about modeling?
The collaboration between all the creative forces involved. I enjoy really getting a grasp on the photographers vision and helping it come to life.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
I am most comfortable nude, which is funny since I had to dedicate a spare bedroom and turn it into a giant closet full of clothes racks. I love vintage, especially 40's and 50's pencil skirts and dresses, lingerie, corsets, latex and girly fetish stuff... I have a huge collection of size 8 heels, lots of leopard print clothing, vintage furs (I'd never buy new fur!), and I adore leather and vinyl pants!
Classic Burlesque has become a huge phenomena lately, what about it first captured your interest?
I love the glamour and grace it brings to the female personae. I love the tease and denial aspect ;) Although I consider myself a model first, I do enjoy the chance to interact in person with fans, and The Cleveland Burlesque Company is a great avenue for me to do that.
Are there any other creative mediums you work in?
In addition to modeling and dancing, I also act in B/indie movies, work as a Dominatrix and film custom fetish videos for fans with a specific vision in mind.
