Birthplace: The small little town of Whitefish, Montana.

When did you begin go-go dancing? How you think the Scottsdale club scene has changed from when you started?
I started dancing at the beginning of this year... and my company (Coolmix.net) has quickly climbed to the top, promoting for clubs including Myst and Axis/Radius. I have seen more and more high profile people spending a lot of time at our Scottsdale clubs as they become busier. With all of our special events and the way we market and take care of our supporters, Scottsdale clublife will continue to boom and become the next Vegas!
Are you formally trained in any style of dance?
I was the dance captain of my cheer team in high school haha. So that style shows through when I GoGo... but for the most part it's a completely different kind of freestyle that you can't be trained in. GoGo dancing is all about feeling the music and the crowd and moving accordingly to raise the energy in the club.
What is your wildest memory from the clubs?
My wildest memory doesn't have anything to do with dancing... because thats always wild :) but just recently I did a sensual sushi party at Suede for our "One Night in Bangkok" event. My sister Kimmi, my girl Daaimah and I were beautifully covered in a few banana leaves topped with sushi and we made the most gorgeous little tables for the club-goers to enjoy. That was a memory I'm not sure I can top anytime soon.
Which song do you like dancing to the most?
I don't have one particular song that I can choose because I love music so much... and can't keep my body still when there is any music on. Hip-hop/hyphy style music is my absolute passion. It was created for the clubs so it only makes sense that it makes you want to dance :) My favorites among many others are Ciara and Beyonce... and most songs produced by Swiss Beatz, he has some serious skills.
At which clubs can people see you dance?
I dance at Myst on Saturdays and Axis/Radius on Thursdays and Saturdays... My actual schedule varies weekly but our Coolmix dancers all bring down the house at those clubs on those nights :)
Apart from being one of the most iconic go-go dancers in Scottsdale you are also a model and TV personality. What projects did you recently appear?
I did a lot of modeling as a child and just recently got back into it at the beginning of this year. I have been working with a lot of local photographers and having a blast with different styles and locations. I also appeared on an episode of the new CW drama "Hidden Palms" that will probably air at the beginning of next year. My Coolmix dancers Alayna, Kenna, Lori and I danced as 60's GoGo dancers for a themed party on the show... and we got the opening of the episode all on us so look out for that :)
Where are you going with your model and TV career?
I will continue to work locally with my modeling because I enjoy shooting for businesses and companies that are going to stay connected and promote me as I promote them. I don't plan on signing with an agency anytime soon unless a major opportunity arises. I am looking at a reality TV show haha... I think it would be a blast and I would really like to get onto the big screen eventually. So I will do what I can to get my foot in the door.
What is "sexy" to you?
Sexy is being individual. When you have your own style and taste, and you are confident in yourself others will be confident in you too. I believe that being humble is another very important aspect of sexiness. Because there is nothing more unattractive than someone who can't stop talking about how good they are and how bad everyone else looks.
