Hi, So you want to know more about who I am?
Well, I am originally from Las Vegas (born and raised
if you can believe that!), and I just moved back to Las Vegas. I must be crazy
coming back to all the Summer heat! My nationality is half Japanese and half German,
and I was named after my grandmother on my mom's side. I always get asked what
my name means (happiness, beauty, and child-like), and I do my best to try and
honor the name. I got the child-like down!
I have always loved the great outdoors, and LA has satistfied
my appetite (waaaaa..I miss LA) with so many options to choose from
far from skiing,
plenty of places to hike,
and the beaches are everywhere!!!!) I have yet to get to explore
all of it. Los Angeles is HUGE!
I have been modeling since
I was 30 years old and am loving every minute of it!
(I have always been a ham since I was a kid). |
One of the
things that tickles
my funny bone about
is being in front of the camera,
and well, as you as you see here, being tickled for real in front of the camera!
I must admit that the opportunity to travel to all sorts of cool places and meeting
all kinds of interesting people, and I am talkin' INTERESTING, adds to the whole
favorite thing about print work is getting the chance to be creative, not to mention
seeing the outcome of the efforts between model and photographer. It
has taken such a long time of soul searching to figure out what I wanted to do
with my life. Now that I found it, my only regret is wishing I would have started
it sooner (But hey! Better late than never!).
I realize that the clock is ticking, and I want to make
the best of the years I have left in all categories that I cover in modeling.
I exercise a lot (Fitness Bootcamp
beach [after 2 years of taking the class, they made me one
of the instructors!!]
, rollerblading, running on the sand, stair climbing,
dodging bullets, leaping out of the way from oncoming traffic, and whatever other
physical challenges that jump out at me),
and I eat a fairly good diet and treat myself to a facial
once a month. Where did that ice cream come from?? Did I mention I LOVE chocolate
I also take
time to live a little and enjoy life.
(This has to be a fantasy...I never
take time! Who is that girl in the pool? Is that really me taking some time off???
Yet, you may wonder, "What happens when you get too old?"
no such thing! There is a market out there for all kinds of age groups. If I have
to do "Ensure" ads, then so be it! I am here for the long haul. That
is the beauty of the business: There is something for everyone of all ages and
all types. You just have to go out there and find it, grab it, and don't let go!!
In addition to modeling,
I also enjoy
In a way, the two careers intertwine together.
Acting, I realize, is a long and hard journey, but I plan
on enjoying the adventure every step of the way (good and bad).
I also realize that with acting and especially modeling,
that there are a lot of bucks spent on wardrobe. If you want to help out a starving
actress/model (violin music playing), you can check out one of the places I like
to shop, and surprise me with an outfit. As a payback, I will shoot in it and
send you a complimentary 8 X 10 print of it just for you! ;)
I hope this
doesn't look tacky. People are always writing me and asking me what I like, so
I have provided this info. No pressure. :)
Secrets (Not so keen on lingerie, but I like the clothes. You guessed I am
and Villain Costumes
(LOL Gotcha. This obviously has nothing to do with clothes, but I LOVE wine.
B&H Photo (Yes, this is all
about the gadgets and camera equipment)
*If it isn't
clothes, I will still pose with it. LOL
With the drive and determination that
possesses my soul and other areas, I have no doubts that the opportunities will
continue to be there, and they will only get better. I am living my dream, and
I have no intentions of ever giving up, so don't try talking smack to me....
or I will let you have it! :)
Besides modeling, acting, and exercising, I also get a kick
out of working on my website.
I have come a long way in the computer age (from playing
pong to designing my website and continuing to learn more as I go).
I am a highly independent woman, and there is nothing like
the feeling of setting a goal and accomplishing it on my own.
I love to get
email, so feel free to email me
questions you might have or just to say, "Hi."
