  2. When did you start selling or performing? In general or at ren fests?
    a. I have been performing as a mermaid since 2015 and started at Faire in 2024.
  3. What was your local faire or home faire?
    a. My local faire that I grew up going to multiple times a year was Scarborough Faire in Waxahachie,
  4. Why Renaissance Faires or theme? What is it that made you so interested in this period?
    a. There has also been something about that time period that I have been drawn to. My mother thinks
    it because I was born in Germany and remember seeing the castles.
  5. In five years (or less) my goal is to: Have a tank or just regularly perform at my local fairies be that
    Texas Renaissance Festival, Kerrville Renaissance Faire, Sherwood Forest Faire or New Braunfels
    Renaissance Faire.
  6. At faire, what was your garb/attire your usual go to?
    a. I have this beautiful shimmer purple and teal chemise and skirt from SilverLeaf that I pair with a
    black corset and all of my octopus accessories including the sword.
  1. What makes you stand out?
    a. I think what makes me stand out is that I have a Marine Biology degree from Texas A&M Galveston. I know conservation and education is a big push within the mermaid community and having that deep understanding of how it all connects and works I think makes a difference when speaking with people.
  2. What was your very first experience at a renaissance festival? What education or training if any do you
    have that led to what you do?

a. My first experience at faire was at Scarborough Faire when I was about 13 or 14. I knew I wanted to
dress up so we got me a general costume from the party supply store to attend. I immediately fell in
love with everything there: the acts, the outfits, the overall atmosphere. I left that first trip with a dress
and corset from faire. After attending I also got into a local belly dance studio where I was then and
eventually when we moved up towards Dallas I continued my training with Isis Academy Performing
Arts, whose troupe performs at Scarborough. Eventually professional mermaiding became this big thing
that I got into and mermaids slowly started swimming into the faires. At first for mermaiding I had no
training. It was very much figuring it out for yourself. But a couple years ago now I became certified by
PADI as an Advanced Mermaid and as a Mermaid Instructor. It has solidified my skills as a professional
mermaid. Throughout growing up and my adult life I have also had professional acting and voice acting

  1. What is your go to for food at faire? You can name a food vendor or if you are a food vendor, what is
    your most sold item?
    a. That’s a hard one and definitely depends on the faire. Like at Scarborough I really like their baked
    potatoes. For Texas Renaissance I tend to eat their popcorn chicken with chips. Haven’t found a go-to at
    Sherwood Forest Faire yet, although the candied bacon thing the coffee shop has is good.
