It really all began with a friend's computer webcam in 2000. Photography called to me and I answered boldly, diving head first into something new, but felt as if it had been in my life forever. I could never find myself settling down on a single genre, following the regular rules of photography..I was doing my best to forge my own New unique path, whatever that may be. I live every day seeing the world as if I'm always looking through a view finder or being photographed as a model. And It was THE best thing that could happen to me; I found myself, confidence, motivation, courage, freedom, and greatest of all, happiness.
I'm a goof with a small dark side. A lady with a sassy mouth, dirty mind and rather classy wardrobe. Wellll, there areee the occasional Dominatrix outfits...(; I love to dress up, jazz up others, roll around in glitter and rusty broken down buildings, location hunt, & shoot shoot shoot every moment of it!
Based in The Berkshires of Western, MA; near NYC & Boston. I'm an outgoing, extremely dedicated artist - working behind and in front of the lens. constantly learning, creating, designing my own sets, applying makeup, dreaming up ideas, learning to perfect lighting, as well staying on top of business. I humbly and very much need many models, clients, hairdressers, designers and fellow photographers to collaborate with me to help build my New, Better, Bigger and more Bad-ass portfolio(s) - photography and modeling.
This is no job or hobby to me, but my way of feeling pure joy, be my most raw self, it's my most honest expression when words don't quite cut it; a deep seeded passion, a drive to do more, become greater each experience, overcome my fears, spew out emotions usually held in. I have a new perception.. my eyes see more, my heart is open to more, and instead of feeling envy of photographers/artists that are great, I want to sit down with them, learn what makes them tick, and perhaps collaborate.

I am a chronic illness survivor, I live with epilepsy which causes a rare form of seizure, abdominal, with migraines..in my stomach and head. Worse than the flu. & I live with it daily. (meep!) After six years of dealing with a rare illness mixed with other illnesses, I now know how to work without it getting in my way. I can work just like any one else, I just may need to take a few very quick breaks here and there to take medication that keeps me stable. Actually, I appreciate work much more now, and am eager to do whatever I can<3 I could say this illness is the worst thing that's ever happened to me, but it's untrue..life is fragile, and more beautiful than I thought. I've opened my eyes to different ideas that will take me places I can't wait to go..emotionally, mentally, creatively stronger, I cannot wait til I can show the world what I can really do.
