A little about me...

I was born in Syracuse, New York and moved to Florida at the age of four where I have lived in Sarasota, Florida since. I graduated from High School in 1993 and later obtained an Associates in Science degree in Business Administation, Management and marketing.

What did you do before modeling?

Actually several things, from waitressing at Hooters part time, working at an aluminum company as a a secretary, being an office manager of an investment company, writing business plans, and business ventures, and private investigating. Once I was finished with the 8 - 5 workday, I decided to follow my dreams and take a chance with modeling. Modeling has always been a dream for me and I have found that the opportunities of advertising on the internet is what drove me into full time modeling. There are a lot of opportunities out there and the only way to get the word out is to advertise. Since so many people use the internet today, I figured, why not advertise on the internet? I currently am traveling around the United States doing different modeling jobs, to places I never imagined.

Do you have any pets?

I have two cats, Symbra and Tika, and a dog named Miessen.

What type of modeling do you do?

I do all types of modeling ranging from print, editorial, calendars, mannequin modeling, promotions, spokesmodeling, swimwear, tv, and surrealism as well as promotions for corporate companies, as well as nude modeling for Playboy.

How did you get into Playboy?

I am asked this question quite frequently. Playboy has a website located at www.playboy.com where they have a section entitled FAQ - it tells their address and how women can submit pictures for consideration. As far as how I got into Playboy, I submitted some clothed pictures to an agency in NY and they sent them to some people at Playboy who liked my look. I received a call from Playboy, flew to NY, shot with Gen Nishino and Debbie Mae and was published in the Playboy's Book of Lingerie in March/April 1998. Since that time, I have now been in four more Special Editions books by Playboy and continue to work with them.

How did you get into Perfect 10?

I submitted to Perfect 10, back in 1998, and was rejected. I resubmitted my pictures in 2001, and now work for the company on promotions as well as will have a layout in an upcoming 2001 issue.

How can I become a model?

Many people have a false perception that models have to be a certain height, weight or have a certain look. This is not so. As far as the modeling world goes - different modeling requires different looks. Being short does not mean you cannot model. It means you cannot do runway modeling. It does not limit you to other types of modeling. Any person with a unique look, whether they are short or a certain weight - can model. I suggest any person who has an interest, get some snapshots taken, and send them into agencies or go to castings. Many photographers on the internet also will trade time for pictures which means you can have pictures taken at no charge if you give them your time. This is the best way for any person interested in modeling to get started. It is not necessary to pay for schools, or pay a large amount for pictures. It is a long process, but if you are dedicated to becoming a model, then you must try before you can see any success. I also am helping new models by now promoting them on my site at no charge, so if you are interested in being represented, please send me an email and I will see if I can help.

Can I get an autographed picture?

I am happy to send autographed pictures out to anyone who requests them for a charge of $15 - which includes shipping and handling. I usually try to have them to you within 2 - 3 weeks as sometimes it is hard since I travel quite frequently. Please send money orders only, personal checks will be returned due to previous experience with bounced checks.

As a kid what were you like?

I was actually a tomboy (there is still a lot in me today) ... I liked to climb trees, I did gymnastics, karate...played in the mud. When I got a little older, I began playing the flute which I did for 7 years, and played volleyball, where I went on to play USVBA (United States Volleyball Association) which is a love of mine but due to problems with my wrists, I had to stop. All my friends were guys back then, and still continue to be to this day. There seems to be a lot of jealousy and cattiness in women, which I do not like.

Who is your favorite model and why?

I would have to say that after browsing the internet now for almost a year, it would be many of the girls out there. I like their styles, the way they have their sites designed, and the difference in everyone's site and appearance. Most of us network together and are really good friends who can rely on each other for advice or news about someone we should not be working with....

Do you do anything besides modeling?

Right now, modeling is a full time job for me, as well as keeping up with my websites. I travel all across the United States right now, as well as to the Caribbean for jobs, and am rarely home. When I am home, I am working on my websites, contacts for new jobs, and scheduling. I enjoy snowboarding but there is no snow near me, so when I need to take out frustrations I go to kickboxing.
