How did you get into pinup Modeling?
I was watching alot of Charlie Chaplin silent films. I am a huge fan of Charlie Chaplin! He’s directed alot of amazing actresses like Lillian Gish, Clara Bow, and many more.  By watching those wonderful women I just fell in love with the 1930’s and 1940s… I’ve looked up to many of these inspiring women throughout there career; They’re very funny, energetic, and outrageously beautiful in all their pictures. After being a fan for many years I wanted to pursue pinup/retro/fetish modeling… so I did… and I LOVE IT!!!

What is your favorite car show to attend and why?
My favorite car show of coarse is the Viva Las Vegas Weekender! I love this car show because there are so many events happening all the time:  the fashion show, car show, rockabilly bands, burlesque show, pin up contest, etc… Viva is also in the best place ever LAS VEGAS!!!!

What makes a hot rod “cool” to you?
For me a cool car is a custom exterior or interior that carries a theme or is completely different… cars that will catch my eye and also have to have alot of power!

Best pick up line.
My best pickup line? I really don’t have a best pick up line… but I do hear a couple of pickup lines like, “Is that your real red hair?” or ” How often do you dye your hair?”

Favorite pinup photo shoot you’ve done so far
It’s hard to pick a favorite… I’ve met and worked with plenty of wonderful photographers that I’ve been lucky to make fabulous friendships with… I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. If I could choose an ideal photo shoot it’d be with someone I’ve never worked with before that has a energetic personality and is crazy-fabulous… hahaha

Guys: Sweet and romantic or the bad boy?
I like both guys. I like the bad boys that are interesting and keep me on my toes, but when I wanna stay in and cuddle the sweet and romantic guys are perfect…

Most attractive quality in a man?
Has to be a man that knows a lot about building hot rods and muscle cars… so he can teach me… hahah
