Q: How did you become interested in pin-up modeling?
A: I started out doing fetish work, primarily bondage. Then I worked with Shanda Kerr and Miss Missy and had so much fun using a different side of my personality. I love vintage hairstyles, makeup, clothing, everything. Pin-up is sexy and fun and playful and classic and I love all of that.
Q: Who is your favorite model and who is your favorite photographer?
A: My all time favorite photographer is David LaChapelle. There are so many models (and friends) I admire and am inspired by in pinup, namely, my best friend Angela Ryan, Mosh, and Kali Ann.
Q: Have you ever bad experience with a photographer?
A: I've had one or two experiences that stand out, either with being mislead about the content of a shoot or a bondage photographer that had no idea what he was doing and really hurt me. Over all I've been really fortunate and have worked with lots of fun, genuine, and talented people.
Q: What is your favorite outfit?
A: I love wearing latex dresses out on the town but for just everyday I prefer black leggings, a long white wife beater, and my black suede over the knee riding boots with my black and gray skull scarf.

Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I've recently started taking ballet to try an obtain some grace since I'm naturally very clumsy. I'm very into yoga, reading horror novels, baking, and traveling.
Q: What are your obbessions?
A: I have an unhealthy obsession with shoes, latex, kittens, and the book and movie The Last Unicorn. I've even nerded out and met the author, Peter S. Beagle and had him sign my book. I have over 50 pairs of high heels alone, not counting boots, flats, or any other kinds of shoe, just my heels.
