Hello, my name is Heide.

The modeling industry, which basically my life for 16 years, is often a lonely and confusing industry. I was lucky enough to have a strong support system always nearby, but that is generally not the case. I learned that we need a safe space for models to share their fears/anxieties/concerns/experiences without fear of repercussions in their career, and that is much of what I aim for this space to be. I'm hopeful that models will be able to see themselves in this space and feel comfortable reaching out to me if they need someone to talk to or even someone to help point them in a positive direction. 

A little about me: I'm a student of life. A voracious observer. An insatiable learner. I am currently a student at Columbia University, studying psychology.

I love to support ethical brands who are doing the hard work to change our world for the better, and hope that my sharing their work will inspire you to support them too. I was a model at Muse NYC for the last decade and have worked with multiple non-profits such as English In Mind, REBUILD Globally, and NYCares.
