Where were you born and raised?
Lansdale, PA a small suburb outside of Philly.
Growing up were there any people that influenced your decision on getting a tattoo?
My grandfather was in the Navy, and I remember he had a lot of awesome traditional work on his arms. He died when I was very young, but it was one thing I always remembered about him; it something I always thought was beautiful about him.
What made you decide to get your first one?
Well, I gave myself quite a few “Indian ink” tattoos when I was underage, so it was a no brainer when I turned 18 to start covering them up lol!
Do you have a favorite tattoo, and does it have a meaning behind it?
Right now yes … my back piece has a huge cherry tree. Growing up I had the same tree in my back yard, and it was so beautiful and my favorite thing to look at. I would pick the buds off and make little bouquets for my mom, so it reminds me of her because age is the foundation, the core of my family.
How did you get into modeling?
I got stopped in a mall at 17 by a photographer who wanted to do some portfolio work. Been doing it off and on ever since!
What or who are you’re inspirations?
Again, I would say my mother. She is the kindest, smartest and most beautiful woman I know. If I can be half the woman she is, I’ve succeeded.
What projects are you currently working on?
Right now I am working a lot with VBlazin magazine and doing a few shoots for some moto magazines as well. Looking to get into some more pin-up work in the future as well.
