-How did you became a model and how long have you been doing this?
|Picture by Richard Briseño|
I've been modeling since 2009 and I started off my first shoot with a first time photographer. It was a perfect match.
-I could not but love your style.
How would you describe your style yourself and where do you find your
inspiration? We want to know all about your awesome closet!
I really get my inspiration from my roots which have always lied in
metal, goth, and punk subcultures and that's where I draw everything
from and just kind of mix it all together to create my own style. My
closet consists of some bigger brand items but mostly a lot of it is
from small name artists and designers.
-What is the one thing that
you are the most proud of?
|Picture by Richard Briseño|
What I'm most proud of is what modeling has done for myself as an
individual. I've always had anxiety issues and modeling has helped push
me out of comfort zone and pursue my dreams.
-Do you have some sort of exercise routine, do you watch
how you eat or do you just go with the wind?
Ideally I like to go to the gym 3x a week where I focus on cardio and
weight training. I love food though so it's hard for me to stick to a
particular diet. I try to eat light and healthy during the weekdays and
then have cheat meals on the weekends.

do you do besides modeling?
For the most part I'm a home-body and I like to read, play XBOX, and
watch movies. But I occasionally go out and go-go dance at industrial
clubs in LA. I also have gotten into altering and making clothing which I
do off-and-on and sell on my etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/shop/Gh3ttoBla5terDesigns
-When did you start doing gogo dancing and
what do you love the most about it?
I don't really recall a time or place where I started. I think at one
point a promoter had mentioned for me to get on the go-go box and that's
what basically started it. I really just go-go dance for fun, the part I
love the most is definitely the extra space on the go-go boxes or stage
to move and dance without bumping into people.

photoshoot has been your favorite so far?
That is so hard to say because every photoshoot has something special
about it and the amazing photographers I've worked with all deserve
credit. If I had to pick one though it would probably be the shoot I did
in 2013 with Richard Briseño at the infamous Linda Vista Hospital in
Los Angeles. I've always wanted to visit that abandoned hospital and I
was so fortunate he was able to get us in.
-Who is the person you
would love to be working with?
There are a lot of great photographers I follow on facebook that I would
love to work with, too many to name, but some of whom I hope to work
with in the future.
-What are the most important things in life?
My family. I live with my amazing boyfriend, our little French Bulldog, and our black cat. They mean everything to me.
time! Tattoos can tell a lot about the person who is carries them. How
many tattoos do you have and do they have stories behind them?
I feel like I have just one large tattoo that just isn't fully connected
yet. My tattoos do have significant meaning that would really only make
sense to myself. They have a lot to do with my family, upbringing, and
just things I personally adore.
-What do you think about
beauty, what things define it? Do you have something to say to those
people who still fight to discovering themselves?
|Photographer: Dave G.|
Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. It can not be defined and
it's up to each individual to define and create themselves. If you feel
lost, you're not the only one. We all start somewhere and eventually
-What kind of dreams
do you have?
I've modeled for clothing companies before and I'd love to work with
some of my favorite brands. I also just got my first publication in a
magazine and my next step is to work towards being on covers. Honestly
the sky's the limit!

1) Perfecting makeup takes a lot of trial and error, there is no top
secret miracle, you just have to keep trying and find what works best
) You don't have to buy expensive clothes to stand out. A lot of my
outfits are fairly simple but I accessorize the hell out of them and it
turns into a whole new look.
3) Never be afraid of trying something new
and different, it's what'll make you stand out from the crowd.
always go for big brands, support independent artists because that's
where the hidden treasures are.
5) Be yourself. The term is cliché for a
reason, it's true. You should always feel comfortable with what you're
doing and express what makes you happy.
-Is there any future
plans/photoshoots you are waiting for?
Yes, there are a few photographers I've been talking with recently and
we're in the works for some upcoming shoots so stay tuned!
