The in-depth Version -
I began my modeling adventures back in 2009. I had my headshots and portfolio done as I originally wanted to get into acting. In addition to that my best friend and I would create our own photoshoots. From there my passion for modeling began and I continued to do so lightly until 2012. In 2012 I decided to begin my journey with SuicideGirls - a popular alternative pinup / nude website.
I began to shoot a more adult themed photography. I fell in love with boudoir, the shadows.. Natural lighting photography. A year after my career really took off.
I found cosplay back in 2012 alongside my modeling career. I fell in love with cosplay when I attended my first convention and learned all about it. I did cosplay just for fun and in 2013 it started becoming a real career for me. I started attending conventions as a guest, host, judge and panelist. I started speaking on topics I truly cared for. I began creating more elaborate costumes and gaining recognition for my work.
In 2015 I began to combine my two loves together and to make more "sexy cosplays" I tend to do strip-down photosets of my favorite characters. I like to imagine them in these scenarios. What underwear would they wear? What would their set up be like? Would they have cute accessories. I try my hardest to embody my characters and to put them in the most natural surroundings for who they are. Mostly, I just like to create art.
Today I continue to model for countless websites, companies and freelance work. I wanted to expand my reach to multiple platforms and try new things. I am now a vlogger and upload videos weekly to youtube. I can also be found on Twitch most nights and through multiple social media platforms. I'm also making my way across the USA and attending conventions around the world!
