NEW YEAR, NEW VIDEO!

I have emerged from my cyber slumber to bring you a new video! The newly conceived 2017 has sparked some creative embers that I had to let burn. After receiving this care package from Happy Monday and shooting product shots for it a couple months prior, I put them aside to pay more attention to […]

ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS: IN MEMORY OF MY HAIR

When you are in possession of something for the majority of your life, there is a tendency to protect it from disposal because your emotional attachment to it has cemented after years of routine.

SPARKLE ALIEN EMOJI

Derived from the gifted mind of Jocelyn, this little monster sprang to life from imagination and found the glitter stash shortly after birth. I couldn’t let this look go to waste, you could say it’s out-of-this-world… Sorry. Photos by Michael Leighfield

MEET HAPPY MONDAY

This one goes out to the friendly girl that called me cute and asked me where I bought my outfit from today. I’m disappointed you will never see this, but I just want you to know that I’m thinking about you and I hope it was a sincere compliment and not a Regina George reenactment.

SO YOU THINK YOU’RE A MODEL?

Don’t worry, I wasn’t talking to you. You’re doing a great job. You could probably teach me a thing… or multiple things if we have time. Are you free later? How’s Friday? Yeah, I can’t make it either. Guess all that knowledge is yours. What I can do is ramble about my modelling origin story, you interested? Let’s […]
