I'm a Model, Artist, & Photographer of Native American & Irish ancestry working between the U.S. and Europe. I've enjoyed the distinct pleasure of working alongside numerous Top Photographers like Ulf Scherling (DE), Rene Hoff (FR), and Karsten Skarbal, as well as phenomenal master airbrush artists like ArteKaos (IT) and Giorgio Uccellini (IT), body painter Lucie Brouillard (CAN), portrait artist Andy VanOverberghe (US), and fashion and music industry photographer, Bryan Smoak (US) to name a few. Current projects include a global Brand Ambassadorship with Unilever as an official AXE Angel as well as several forthcoming projects.
I've exceptional experience in other professional venues like the renown World BodyPainting Festival, a prestigious international event held annually in beautiful Austria. The first of its kind, the festival has quickly become the 'Mecca of Bodypainting', drawing THE best artists, stylists, musicians and various performers from around the globe, as well as hundreds of thousands of visitors. In 2009, I was chosen by the Canadian artist Lucie Brouillard to be the face of her piece entitled, "Bird of Paradise". Broadcasting LIVE from mainstage Seeboden via Eurostat satellite to more than 4 million viewers in over 40 countries, her exquisite design placed 1st World Champion in the Sponge and Brush category.
Since 2006, I've had many wonderful collaborations with other artists lending Muse inspiration in a variety of works from rock and alternative music, to canvas and sculpture currently exhibited in art galleries, including several magazine and book publications, and other venues. One such collaboration began in 2008 and continues to this day where I am the resident 'Muse' at Kaos Studios Italia in Bologna, Italy; a proud partnership that's also resulted in being predominantly featured in the pages of "ArteKaos: Airbrush & Art", vol. 1, Arte Contemporanea, Emozioni di Alessandro Rinaldi", and as the book's Cover Model in a portrait aptly titled, "The Muse".
As a photographer, I specialize in architectural, abstract, and travel genres though all forms of photography piques my interest. To date, a number of my own photographic works under the moniker '10th Muse Photography' has garnered special peer accolades and are prominently featured in several industry portals & galleries worldwide.
When not in front of the camera, I can often be found behind it as an abstract painter, fervent supporter of women & children's rights, campaigning for Autism Spectrum Disorders, and as an advocate for several anti-Human Trafficking organizations.
