Photographer: Brandon Caffey

Model: Atley M
Jewlery Designer: Glynneth B

How did you start modeling?
It kind of began through acting. I had been pursuing passions with independent film and did a photoshoot as the character I was playing. It felt like an extension of acting – behaving as someone else, expressing emotion, telling a story.

Tell us what are you into besides modeling?
I have a 3 1/2 year old son, so I’m very into him! The outdoors. Snowboarding. Film still absolutely intrigues me. I’m kind of artsy too.

Who is your favorite model and why?
I don’t know that I have a favorite model, more photographers whom I admire the style of. Not particularly photographers of giant notoriety (yet). It’s fascinating to me to watch someone evolve in their craft.

Did you grow up with a large family?
Not at all. I’m an only child and I always hated that stereotype. It was my parents and I most of the time. I was very close to my grandma though, she was a huge influence on the woman I strive to be.

What do you do in your free time?
Make things, create art & camp, anytime I can go camping!
I’m all for recycling/up cycling things. I’m very into decor and have recently been looking into feng shui.

What’s the biggest city you’ve been to?
San Francisco.

What’s your most favorite city to visit?
San Francisco, if I had to pick a city that’s it, that place fascinates me and the excitement of going there never seems to fade in my mind.

What city do you have on your list to go to before you die?
New York, inevitably. Although I feel drawn to Tokyo as well.

What is your best asset?
My ass lol
My creativity. I’m all in with everything I do, I have to believe in it, I give whatever I’m working on my full attention.

What are your goals as a model?
Artistic fulfillment.

How do you see yourself progress in this field?
Making choices that constantly challenge me, not being afraid to leap into certain opportunities.

Are you a coffee lover?
Yes! Typically of the Irish variety.
Coffee with desert is perfection to me.

What turns you on about a man?
Grammar. The proper usage of your v. you’re does great things.

What do you prefer? Bad boy or Classy Men?
I have to choose? If the classy guy can get his hands dirty, I’m sold.

What instantly gets you off?
7,000 rpms.

Are you a giver or taker during sex?
I give until I can take.

How can we follow you online?
