What to Expect
I am known specifically for doing comedic burlesque with elaborate costuming. Some of the I acts I have performed are tributes to Lil BUB (the famous internet cat), a large venus fly trap, a steampunk aviator (complete with air balloon!), and a space mermaid! I have a unique and creative approach to burlesque that will charm your audience!
As far as burlesque, upon hiring me as a burlesque performer you can expect me to strip down to thongs or pasties for an act. If this is not what you wish, please speak with me ahead of time and I can make adjustments to the act.
I am a reliable, dependable performer with a a large variety of acts to choose from. I can also create an act to specifically relate to your event!

Influences & Inspiration
Charlie Chaplin, the Ziegfeld Follies, and pop culture heavily influence the acts that I create. My costuming is very influenced by both classic burlesque stylings, Neo-burlesque, and modern art.
