We’re happy to have you feature on Playboy! Can you give us a bit of a background on your career as a model and where it all started? I don’t really consider myself a model. I am first a performer. Modeling just comes with the job. I’ve been performing for around 10 years now, traveling the country performing my blend of sideshow and burlesque. I have won numerous awards doing it. Winning the 2021 Miss Nude World was a highlight! 

Having a full schedule must make it difficult for you to get much alone time, talk to us about the top 3 must-dos to ensure you fit in some well-deserved downtime? Learn how to say NO! Seriously. People will take and take and take from you if you always say yes. It’s important to say no. Naps! I can’t believe we all hated naps as children. If only we knew! Food! Making time for a good home-cooked meal!

what does it mean for you to be seen as a strong, intelligent, ambitious woman? Personally, I don’t mind how people see me. Being strong, intelligent, and ambitious is what it takes to be successful in any arena but especially as a female performer. I just do what I love and let people sort it out for themselves.

What are some of the biggest misconceptions people have about what you do? People presume that because I am a performer and take my clothes off during my shows that I am available for them to touch without permission. 

What does freedom of self-expression mean to you? Haha. Well, if I didn’t have that freedom, I guess I’d just lay in bed all day. It helps me afford the things I want in life. 

We absolutely love your Instagram, your content is very dynamic, inspirational, and downright sexy, could you perhaps tell us what your personal experience as an influencer has been like? Personally, I don’t like that word “influencer” social media is so limiting these days that I can’t actually post what I want to. So, what you see is the watered-down “PC” version of what I’d like it to be. I hope I don’t influence people to do what I do for a living. Because I’ve spent years training and perfecting my art and I’ve seen people try to do what I do and injure themselves because they haven’t trained correctly. So, if you’re going to be influenced by me, please find someone to train you correctly, and don’t rush into it. 

3 things that you can’t go a day without. My man. My cat. Garlic bread.

What about those crazy DMs you must receive! Care to share a few funny stories regarding those? I have actually been very lucky and rarely receive them. I also don’t check my messages very often. But if I do see one on there, it’s the quickest way to get blocked. 

Now we’re sure you experience a lot of male attention on and offline, any advice you would like to give to men out there who are hoping to catch your eye the right way? Send money not nudes haha. But seriously my man got my attention by being kind attentive and being nerdy like me. I really admire ambition in a man. I also like it when men are humble. 

What is the absolute worst thing a man can do to completely put you off?  Be stupid. Stupidity is my peeve. 

That said, what advice would you have to give to all women out there when it comes to love and relationships? Look out for those red flags! Don’t brush them off. Don’t waste your time on guys who are superficial. Be with someone you can be honest and open with and talk about anything with. 

Thank you so much for sitting down with us and letting us get to know you! Any last words for our readers out there? Thank you so much for having me here at playboy! If you want to follow me, you can check out my website for all the links to where you can find me!
