My name is Ashley, I consider myself first and foremost an artist muse. Modeling has allowed me to express power, beauty, strength, literally an endless list of raw human emotions. I’m a down to earth girl at heart, for me it’s where I feel myself the most free and liberated.
Over the years my work as a model has consisted of runway, fashion, commercial , and an extensive glamour modeling career. I was the first ever Playboy’s Miss Social of the Year, have been featured in several countries of Playboy as a Cyber Girl and Playboy Playmate. I’ve also been published internationally in MAXIM and FHM.
I have come to be blessed to work with top names in the modeling industry. To Reggie I will never forget your persistence and support, little did you know the flame you were about to light.
