Oh My God They're Gorgeous!


The best kept secret in the bike industry is the pay we receive to play with bikes. While most believe that we live like kings that sit on carbon fiber thrones, the truth is my yoga ball is made in China. We do not eat Lobster every evening with Titanium forks, rather the Ramen is mixed with Chunky Peanut Butter to make our version of Pad Thai.
People in comparable positions at "real" jobs have benefits, cars, furniture from Ikea, a girlfriend or boyfriend, and a lovely condo with a flat screen TV. Rather I save my cans and recycle them in Portland when I go (5cents a can!), ride a bike, relax on my curbside couch...alone, wearing a down coat in my house while adjusting the aluminum foil on the rabbit ears.
In order to live 'the dream' most have to find an alternative income to help sublimate. That's why I turned to modeling....




Yesterday, I received the call...a new P&A Catalog is in the works and a the cover shoot had to be done. I quickly jumped at the opportunity to be included in this highly sought after job.

{setting up the shot}


{Kevin...agent and fluffer}

{Only one thing missing...}

{that's the money shot}


Best $60 I ever spent. Watch for it. A new and daring P&A catalog, coming to a bike shop near you.

Great lookin' there.

I gotta say thanks for that description about the meager pay we get in this industry. It's nice to be reminded that I'm not alone in that statistic.

I love Ramen, I was just talking to Charlie about the different variation of manufacturing kicked-up Ramen, just last night! Nice seafoam t-shirt, hippie girl.
