Are there any publications you are currently chasing after; any brands you’d like to represent?
No, not that I can think of. I never really took it into consideration.

What is the best place you have traveled to model?
I’ve had a lot of offers, but I haven’t really traveled yet. I would like to hang out in California though; it seems like a really fun place.

Who is on your short list of photographers, designers, etc. that you would like to work with?
I’m not picky; I’ll work with anyone really. It’s really the fun of the adventure that get’s me and I always love meeting new people.

What are some of your other loves and hobbies outside professional alternative modeling?
I love to sew and draw pictures; I could spend days doing that. I also love to go out an watch bands play live music — really get’s me going.

What’s your “type”? What gets your blood pumping, “girl next door,” “heavily alternative,” etc.?
Freaky, gory, shocking, and obscene stuff really get’s my attention.

Who are some of your favorite bands?
Oh, there are so many, but mostly metal bands and hard rock though. Arch Enemy, Black Sabbath, Cannibal Corpse, DevilDriver, Exhumed, Fear Factory, Goatwhore, Hatebreed, Immortal, Jimi Hendrix, Kataklysm, Led Zeppelin, Murderdolls, Nile, Otep, Pantera, Queens of the Stone Age, Rob Zombie, Slayer, Tool, Unearth, Vulvectomy, Wednesday 13, Xasthur, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Zakk Wylde. That’s just a short list.

Best metal show you’ve been to?
Oh, that’s a hard one to answer. I think it was the Unholy Alliance Tour with Slayer, Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, Mastodon, and Thine Eyes Bleed — there was a crazy, old-school circle pit that consumed the entire floor.

Worst metal show you’ve been to?
Oh, this one’s easy to answer: the Taste of Chaos Tour with Avenged Sevenfold, Atreyu, and Bullet for my Valentine. It was a free ticket, so I went to get drunk and beat on people in the pit, and I did! Bullet for my Valentine didn’t show up and Avenged Sevenfold’s sound cut out during their song “The Beast and the Harlot,” so they had to play it twice. It was funny.

What’s your best motivational lesson for aspiring models?
Honey, if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love someone else?

Do you have any big plans for 2014?
I’d really love to organize more photo shoots where I use more of my creativity. Like, maybe a shoot with more dead animals.
