She grew up in a small, mountain town in Southern California, sandwiched between an older sister and a younger brother.

On Saturday, August 24, 2013, Neumos in Seattle will host the sixth annual collaboration of Art, Music, Dance, Entertainment and Fashion (AMDEF) show.

AMDEF is an annual event that brings together the communities of Art, Music, Dance, Entertainment and Fashion for a one-night-only experience. Each year highlights a variety of artists collaborating outside of their genre to produce over six hours of non-stop, mixed media performances.

Art
The Neumos Mezzanine level will host a variety of local vendors including Cherry Turnover, Art Willeau, Aetherial Image, The RPM Studio and A Little Risque. Eight members of Artifakt will also be painting eight models representing various organizations to fit the theme of an existing piece of art for a live exhibit. Each piece of artwork will be auctioned off, and the winning bidder will receive the company of the model for the remainder of the event. A percentage of each piece of art sold will be donated to the organization represented by each model.
