What got you started in burlesque?
I went to Paris and was inspired by the Crazy Horse girls. When I came back to the USA, I was lucky to get mentored in the ways of Burlesque, Erotic Performance, and Side Show by Polly Peabody, Pink Snow, and Eak the Geek.
How long have you been performing?
Been performing since I could walk and talk, been doing burlesque a little over a decade, since I knew where I was going and what I was saying.
What does burlesque mean to you ?
It's one of my 3 passions, the one that is an outlet to my creative and fun side.
Ohio is great! It birthed my favorite person, gush, my husband.
