Human Trafficking Survivor and Author, fighting to find the girls I left behind. Ask me ANYTHING!
Have you ever wondered what it's like to be face to face with Death? Let me show you what that feels like...
At the beginning of this year I published my story about my time in human trafficking, all told from my own perspective. In the book, I go into great detail about how I ended up there and what I did to get away. That book "Detailed Pieces of a Shattered Dream" can be found in local bookstores and on Amazon.
Every penny of my book sales will go to help fight human trafficking. Redheads draw a premium price on the black market, I was told by the trafficker I escaped. I was lucky to escape, but I left several other victims behind. I've made it my personal mission to return for them finally. I vow to never stop this mission until I find the girls I left behind. But many victims are never found. I realize this likely means I'll never stop. My escape took place 19 years ago and, sadly, the average lifespan of a victim of human trafficking is only 7 years. They're murdered, they commit suicide or they die of an overdose. That's the ugly truth.
I am also actively looking for more photographers who would like to help with the group and individual portrait photography. Of course, it’s all going to charity and we can’t afford to pay, but we can CERTAINLY afford to advertise. The photographers who are going to be helping with the project will get all kinds of recognition for the work. If the photos are approved for use, they would be gathered into a collection and published in a book that would help us to build future events that would help rescue more children from Human Trafficking. Each volunteering photographer whose photos are used will have an entire chapter of the book dedicated to their photos as well as an approved bio and information on how to contact the photographer in order to purchase prints or book a photo shoot with the featured photographer.

The above photo is from June 2018 and was taken by a photographer for The Book Project. This is a current photo of me. I am also an active Pinup model and Pinup mentor in and around Denver. I've been modelling sporadically since I was 17 years old. I'm now a motivational speaker, a founder of a charity, a 9-5 employee and one of a very select few survivors of human trafficking willing to share my story with the world.
So... ask me ANYTHING.
