1- What inspired you to do modelling? Was there a point early in your life that sparked your interest?
Since I can remember I liked to masquerade myself and to slip in and out of various roles. Moreover I always liked to take picture of myself. When I was 14 a photographer spotted me during a choir concert and since then we make nearly every year a new photoshooting together. But I never really got into modelling up until now. Because I had many other interests and I always considered myself a little too short for that. Just resonantly I started to get more and more attracted by the Goth scene, industrial dancing and its fashion. And luckily very high shoes are part of that fashion.
2- You have dark elements to your style, was there an event or moment that made you decide on your style?
The goth scene attracted me already for a long time. During my teenager years I experimented a little with it but never really got into it. About two years ago I meet my best friend who brought me into contact with the Goth scene again and especially with Industrial Dancing. Over the dancing I got “dragged” more and more into the Goth/Cyber Goth style.
3- Name some of your favorite music or bands?
There are so many and it really depends upon my mood what I like to listen too. However some of them are Distatix, Agonoize, Assemblage 23, V2A, Eisenfunk, Wynardtage, Grendel, Tactical Sekt, Zweifelhaft, Nachtmahr, ASP and Dimmu Borgia. But I also enjoy going to a classic concert from time to time or listen to Bob Marley on a nice relaxed day on the beach.
4- Name some of your accomplishments or highlights of your career so far?
I just got into industrial dancing and alternative modelling. My highlight so far would be to dance on stage for the Italian band Deuxvolt at their UK tour. I enjoyed it a lot and found some awesome new friends.
5- Do you enjoy regular photoshoots? or ones where you get to play a character?
I like to do both. But I love to mascaraed myself, so I guess I like it more when I get to play a character.
6- What other interest do you have besides modeling?
There are so many. =) Running, dancing, reading, photo and video editing, designing, traveling, baking,… I wish the days had 48 hours.
7- Are there any significant projects or events you are looking forward to in the coming months?
I am planning on doing a new dancing video over eastern. I finally got a better computer so that I can use better editing software. And I will also make at least one photo series in this month.
8- If someone is interested in hiring you (modelling agency, bands, producers, etc...) where is the best place to get a hold of you?
