How long have you been modeling/enjoying photography? over a decade
Who are your favorite Pinup Models? Past or present inspiration?
Elizabeth Taylor is always an icon for me. She was who she wanted to be and didn't care what others thought of her. As far as present day... I adore Doris Mayday, Ms. Redd and Tess Munster. Doris for her class, Ms. Redd for her sass and Tess for her moxie.

Deadly Dames, Agent Provocateur, Pinup Girl Clothing, Torrid
If you could shoot with any photographer, past or present, who would it be?
Richard Avedon, Herb Ritts, Patrick Demarchelier

What is your favorite color and why? yellow and orange. They both are just energy for me! My grandmother's favorite color was yellow and she always was so positive. When I am feeling down I can put on something yellow and just feel better.
If you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead who would it be?
Mick Jagger and David Bowie. It would be so incredible to talk about music and art and their lives. Both of these men have influenced my life in many ways. It's rather personal to me, actually.
How did you get your model name? it's a long story that is kind of sweet and a little funny. I was a radio personality in the 1990's at KEBC radio in Oklahoma City. My boss was Jeff Angel (now of Indianapolis). He was a great guy to work with and get to know. We lost touch for a long time but reconnected a few years ago thanks to social media. When we met up again he introduced me to his incredible wife, who does burlesque (Angel Burlesque). Well, when I decided to perform burlesque I found it only fitting that Jeff be a part of my 2nd professional a/k/a. (He named me Nicki South when I was on the radio). So, I asked his wife if I could take his name and that's where Apple Angel came from.
