For many years now I have had a love for mid-20th century style and culture. Through my interest, I ended up coming across retro erotica and burlesque film shorts. I love watching old stag films and burlesque performances from this time period. It seemed so different to me, intriguing, and something I could relate to. When I realized that there was a burlesque resurgence happening I wanted to become involved. I have a background in theater, so I already had some comfort with the stage. Also through the encouragement of those around me and the people I met through pinup modeling and in the fetish community, I gave it a shot. I joined a local fetish troupe and started performing with them at their shows. I have loved it since day one.
How long have you been performing?
I have been doing other types of performance (music, theater, etc.) for over 25 years. I have been performing burlesque for 3 years.
What does burlesque mean to you ?
Burlesque celebrates a time gone by, classy eroticism, outrageousness, fun, creativity, and that we are all beautiful in our own way. I love it when I get feedback from women who have seen me perform, and say that I help them to feel good about themselves, and their body. It makes it all worth it to me.
During my years as a burlesque performer, I have had the pleasure to meet and become friends with some of the Ohio performers. I am looking forward to sharing the stage and celebrating with them at the Ohio Burlesque Festival. I also have some fans in Ohio, and look forward to seeing and entertaining them as well.
