What made you want to become a model?

I love being able to create new worlds with my imagination. I also love the countless ways of expression modeling offers. 

 

How long have you been modeling for?

Since 2017, and years before if it counts I photographed myself and would edit photos with digital art. 

 

What is your strongest area in modeling?

Body/face control - being able to do specific poses that could be challenging for most people (such as suspending myself off a ladder with just my arms-while maintaining control over my face; another example would be controlling my face under water. 

 

Do you consider modeling your passion?

Absolutely! I love art and creating beautiful pictures. 

Who are some of your favorite celebrity models that inspire you?

The main model that had inspired me would be Zheani. She's an Australian rapper who models for an esoteric genre. 

 

What is the biggest challenge you faced with modeling?

One challenge is aligning schedules and locations to work out best for both parties (photographer and model). Everyone is so busy these days and it can be hard to coordinate a schedule--especially when traveling and trying to set up photoshoots to make it worthwhile (i.e. some photographers in a location I might want to travel to and shoot with, might be free on different months). 

 

What are some of the attributes you like to capture when posing in front of the camera?

I want the way I Feel inside to shine through and into the energy of the photos captured. I'd like to capture the essence of boldness, strength, beauty, playfullness, and the like. 

 

What are some of the best moments you've had so far in modeling?

I love when I get into the moment and flow and forget there is a camera there, those are usually when the best photos are born. 

 

Where can people find your work and find out more about you?

I have my modeling profile on ModelMayhem ( modelmayhem.com/space6irl ). 

For general info about my lifestyle, I would say watching my Instagram stories would be a decent summary. 

 

Who is your inspiration that would you love to work with?

I love all types of artists, especially those with video art (futuristic and/or trippy styles) and also some body painters/tapers and photographers who shoot under water. I don't currently have any one specific person in mind because I have seen so many do awesome work in all of these fields. 

 

Heels or Sneakers?

It all depends on context. Most days though- sneakers. For a classy shoot or event , heels.  If I could choose another, it would be no shoes or sandals. 

 

A night out on the town, or a quiet evening at home?

Both. I need my space and alone time to recharge. But I also crave my social life and love to adventure and meet people.
