How long have you been modeling, and what inspired you to start?
I started out as a Hooter’s Girl and did promotional modeling for Coors Light. I’ve also done a few car and bike shows around New York about 6 years ago. From all that work I met a lot of photographers and tried out the whole photo shoot deal, and it just escalated from there. I started with a lot of pin-up and retro shoots, which are always fun because you get to dress up and be someone else for a day. I was always told by my family and friends that I have such a pretty face and body, and that I should be a model. They’re my inspiration for what I do, I love showing off my work and making them proud.
Where are you from, and what is your nationality?
I’m born and raised on Long Island and I’m a pretty big mix of stuff! I’m Irish (no surprise there!), Italian, German, French and Russian.
What body part of yours, would you say gets the most attention?
Hmm... definitely my eyes and red hair, but I have been told by many people, guys and girls, that I have a nice ass and rack for a skinny girl! And of course my tattoos!!
Where else can we see some of your recent work?
Recently, i’ve been in a few other magazines such as, Xtreme Bikes Magazine-Spain and Cycle Source Magazine.
How was your shoot with Bully Girl Magazine?
I had such a great time shooting with Bully Girl Magazine, despite the wind and cold, “where the hell is spring already?” I had a fun time showing some skin for you Bully lovers out there...LOL
After shooting with these dogs, what do you think of the bully breed?
I think my head exploded from the cuteness of the puppies I got to play with! I’m amazed at how wonderful this breed is, and I find it so sad the bad name they can get. I’m glad that Bully Girl Magazine is sending out a positive message for this breed. I’ve always had dogs my whole life and have been a part of many rescue groups so loving dogs is in my blood. The two I got to shoot with were so beautiful and well behaved! I never would have thought they’d be so mellow. I’m looking forward to learning much more about this breed and I will definitely own one in the future!
Do you have dogs, or own pets of any kind?
Right now I have two rescued Greyhounds from racetracks on the East Coast. It’s so sad how people think they can just abuse and throw these dogs out like they’re an old newspaper and not have any remorse. No dog should ever have that life. Other than that, there are various hamsters, lizards, and birds scattered throughout my house, in cages of course!
What other hobbies do you have, besides modeling?
I’m proud to say I’m a car chick. My daily driver is an ‘03 Mustang GT 5 speed, that I occasionally take to the local drag strips for fun. I’ve done a few performance mods to it, like upgrading the exhaust, rear-end gears, cold-air intake, throttle body, and I have a tuner and a set of drag radials for the strip. I am also working on another mustang project that I plan on racing this summer and hopefully make some cash and get my NHRA License!
What are your goals for the future?
I want to be more active in developing and executing photo shoots. I’d like to take the knowledge and networking I’ve gained and put it towards a more behind the scenes role, but on a large scale. Scouting locations, coordinating photographers, models, hair/makeup, wardrobe and props such as muscle cars and bikes, to make the photo shoot exciting for everyone. Kind of like wedding planning I guess, but for magazines, calendars, and fashion shows.
What motto do you live by?
“Live your life to the fullest, cuz you’re gonna be dead a long time!”
