What kind of stuff did you get into after high school?
After high school I had a full time welding job I was working 50+ hours a week in a shop so I really didn't have much time to focus on anything else but I was good at what I was doing!
How did you get into modeling?
I went to a photoshoot with a model as her escort to a shoot with Mathew Dolinar, Matt finished his shoot with the model and asked if I was interested in shooting with him, I did a few more shoots with Matt and posted them on model mayhem, after that the flood gates were open.
How long have you been modeling?
haha, believe it or not I have been modeling for a few months now
How did you feel being in front of the camera for the first time?
I was a little nervous I guess as I said my first shoot I wasn't expecting to be the one in front of the camera! It was exciting tho and I had a lot of fun.
How did you feel walking into your photoshoot?
Confused!? As I was supposed to be an escort to the shoot and ended up shooting as a model.
So would you say you are comfortable in front of a camera now?
Yes definatly! There are challenges I come across working with different photographers but welcome each one. I give 100% on every shoot and I'm not a prissy girl so if the photographer wants me to hang from a ledge 8 ft in the air in 5 inch heals I do it and I do it well! So yes comfortable but I'm always finding new challenges!
Would you say you are pretty comfortable with your body?
I am very comfortable with my body, I've been known to walk around my suburban back yard nude or lay in the hammock in the buff.
What would you say is your best feature?
Id like to say my versatility, but I'm sure we're looking for physical features so I'd say my breasts, most photographers say connection with the camera and physical, my stomach.
What's the best thing about being a model?
Getting to do fun and new things. I love the satisfaction of wowing the photographer and getting awesome images! I love being an idol for other girls and getting new fans! I also love seeing all the new locations and traveling. It's an adventure always and I love it.
What do you do differently to set yourself apart from other models?
I'm up for any challenge and I have fun doing it! I strive to get a perfect photo every time the camera clicks! I'm very easy to get along with and I take direction well! I'm also very creative and flexable i can find that random pose that hasn't been seen before or get that expression that makes the photo amazing.
Where do you hope your modeling will take you?
Right now I am just having a great time, but who doesnt want fame? And I have the drive and determination to get it.
Any highlights in your modeling career?
Talking to people who exist in another realm, by that I mean someone who you so idolize that they don't really exist to normal people (aka me) your favorite celebrity etc..I've talked to my favorite street artist "buff monster" (almost got to take him to dinner), Camilla d'Errico follows me on twitter, Emilie Autumn commented on how sexy my tattoos were and already shooting with some photographers who most believe to be the best out there.
Where can we find you on a typical weekend, if you aren't doing a photoshoot?
Typically at home playing house of the dead! Resident evil, or some other awesome video games, a lot of girls are claiming video game geek since it's a hot trend, but do they have custom painted wii guns with octopus tentacles on them? Hrmm,..?
What keeps you busy away from modeling?
Well I always have something to do I like to stay busy, I love welding so you can find me in the shop pretty often, I love being home cooking dinner for my boyfriend or working on my house. I love creating new things a painting or a dress maybe a neckless.
What do you want to do outside of modeling?
What keeps you busy away from modeling and want to do outside of modeling should be the same question, because if you want to do something, you should be doing it. Don't just talk about your goals, strive to make them happen! It takes a lot of work, but if you keep pushing you will be happy with the results
Five years from now, where do you see yourself?
let's see, 5 years,. Hah 5 years ago I was just a high school junior! So let's see, so many things have happened in such a quick time I really don't know, I do know I'll be busting my butt in the meantime shooting publications worldwide gaining popularity and recognition. You will be seeing more of alloy ash and It won't take 5 years,..you can bet on it!
What is the coolest thing a fan has ever done for you?
Fan art, I love fan art! An artist named rambozos just did an absolute amazing painting of me, I have works in progress with t.c.cor and delva borno also, I've had some really cute girls email me saying I inspired them or I'm an idol to them and that's really fun to hear too!

Tell us something you got away with?
When I was younger me and my friend Tab would go door to door asking for items for a "scavenger hunt" like a quarter from the year 1965-1973, a dime between the year of 1980-1990, a dollar bill with a serial number ending in 5 and other random items.

After gagging for a bit he looked for more green wasabi, not finding it he ate another which was full of brown anchovie paste! Eww!
