I was scouted by a makeup artist in 2012 who liked my look and wanted to shoot with me. The rest is history! I was very nervous at my first few shoots, but I gained confidence quickly and it was very empowering for me to feel talented in a creative field. Before modeling, I had never considered myself to be a creative person. Now, I create in many mediums. I am inspired by the most free artists — those with no real training, who are brave and raw and can perform in front of people with the confidence of a seasoned concert pianist. I am forever inspired by the noise community. They break all of the rules and are very supportive to anyone who wants to perform something strange in front of people. Confidence and support are the key- they allow you to express your weirdest ideas, which are often the best ones.
