About Me

I'm an engineer with a passion for travel & anything Weird. The stranger you are: the better. I'm often full of energy and my mom says I'm funny. I love space, politics, Tolkien, garlic, and cheesesteaks. I'm a gamer, straight-edge, a supporter of 4th wave feminism, sex/body-positive, and willing to work with any gender, ethnicity, height, weight, etc... be who you are. Most important of all: Chaotic-Neutral & House Slytherin.

=== MY SKILLS ===
- Physical Movement (burlesque, dance, yoga, theatre)
- Art (graffiti, tattoos, body paint, etc)
- Nude, Boudoir, Body Sculpting
- Street Scenes
- Protests, Rallies, Special Events

I'm the official photographer for the DC Weirdo Show and I regularly shoot several area burlesque performers as well as dance companies, Cupid's Undie Run, Capitol Improv (which runs No Pants Metro Ride, Pillowfight, and Survive DC), and have in the past been the photographer for the DC Fringe Festival and the Washington Improv Theater.

I am good friends with a talented body painter (http://www.heavydesigns.com/dccreators/). She and her husband run semi-monthly bodypainting sessions at a pub in Adams Morgan (DC) and we are always interested in working with models either at the monthly events or in private sessions.

=== COMPENSATION ===
While I'll occasionally hire models or be hired as a photographer, I prefer to work for free, and models are welcome to use my photos (with attribution) (so yes: TFP). I like the sense of liberation from feeling like everything needs to be perfect; it's a chance to more freely experiment and see what we come up with. And there's no risk of models feeling obligated or bound to do something they do not wish to do, which leads me to...

=== CONSENT! ===
This is critically important! Your comfort is paramount, and I'd want to know what you hope to achieve with a photoshoot, what you do not wish to do, etc. I'll ask before seeking to do anything that hasn't been discussed, and look for enthusiastic consent (that is: not saying No does not imply Yes). I'll confirm you are OK with which photos are uploaded to my Flickr account. Escorts are welcome to join you (if anything I encourage it... they can help me direct!).
