Tell us about yourself. How long have you been into pinup and/or pinup modeling?

I've been involved in pinup for about 3 years now. I've always been a fan of fashion, and all things vintage, so it seemed to make sense for me to become a part of the community. I am expanding my pinup life to also include burlesque. There's so much overlap between the two! It's all about costuming and wardrobe, which I LOVE! I also think it's important for ALL women, especially those of color to be involved in communities like the pinup and burlesque worlds and make a positive influence on each scene, and a beacon that this is for everyone!

Do you participate in a vintage or pinup lifestyle?

I participate in a vintage lifestyle as much as possible. Every day I try to incorporate a neat vintage find into my wardrobe, whether it's a ring, or a jacket. I also adore vintage furnishings. There are so many thrift stores, and furniture companies that offer amazing options. My dream is to have a home that is completely midcentury!

What is your favorite band or musician?

That's a tricky one. I love all types of music. I especially adore music from the 50s-70s; it was so raw, and real. You can feel the passion behind it. I really adore early blues! Howling Wolf, Son House, and Sweet Emma Barrett, a phenomenal self-taught jazz pianist who was paralyzed in her left hand. I also love metal music! Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse, etc. I love music in general.

What is your favorite classic car owned or not?

I have a few different classic cars I love! 69 Camaro RS Z28; 70 Chevelle; 56 Chevy 210; and 65 Mustang! Those are just a few examples, there were so many great cars built from the 30s-60s, it's impossible to say I have a favorite!

Who is your inspiration?

I find inspiration in everyday people! I think as women we are all unique. and each of us has a very different story to tell. I've met so many wonderful people on my pinup journey, and that friendship circle is growing bigger now that I'm also branching out to burlesque. Of course, Angelique Noire has been a huge inspiration, as well as people like Lena Horne. Again, I could create a very long list of icons that have inspired me in both pinup and burlesque.

What makes you an extraordinary pinup?

I'm not sure if I know what exactly makes me an extraordinary pinup...that's tough to answer. I'm interested in pushing boundaries, and the normal standards of beauty. I have a divine love for decadent clothing, style, and ways of life! I also love to encourage and uplift others as much as possible. I think I have an edgy way about me that is pretty unique as well!  I've always just been, well, myself!
