Written By29 Jan 2018
How did you get your start?
I got my start as a professional mermaid when I decided to challenge myself as a live broadcaster and go live underwater. I have been live-streaming for two years and I am always trying to find new creative ways to share live experiences from drone flights to immersive 360’s. While going live underwater I wanted to create something beautiful and interesting. Being as I love mermaids I decided to purchase a tail and go for it! After that everything took off almost immediately.
What did your first tail look like?
My current professional tail is my first tail which I got in March of 2017. A beautiful teal and gold silicone tail! Before that I had a blue fabric tail when I first got started.
What's your favorite thing to do on land?
My favorite thing to do in land is content create. I am a professional photographer and social media creator.
What's your favorite underwater animal?
Dolphins are my favorite ocean animal
What's your favorite thing about being a mermaid?
There are so many reasons I love being a mermaid. My absolute favorite would have to be the feeling of swimming in a tail! It’s effortless and invigorating for me.
Is conservation important to you?
Conservation is extremely important to me. There are so many things we can do to help our planet. As humans taking the smallest steps first would make such an impact. Use less plastic, stop using straws or buy a bamboo toothbrush! Let’s get people more mindful of some of the easiest ways to make less of a footprint!
What would you say to others who want to start a mermaid life?
“Do what sets your soul on fire - turn your dreams into reality and live fearlessly.”
