Happy to have you feature on Playboy! Can you give us a bit of a background on your career as a model and where it all started? I started modeling and competing in pageants at the age of 3! I won Miss California three times and got into the industry. From then on I entered a world of constant photoshoots, networking, etc. In college, I started going to music festivals and grew my following as a dubstep raver in risqué outfits. 

What are some of your best career highlights so far? One of my biggest accomplishments is creating a podcast dedicated to empowering men and women, de-stigmatizing sex work, and the OnlyFans platform. This podcast grew to over 500k subscribers on OnlyFans. Since then I started my own solo podcast called ‘That’s OFfensive’ which launched on all podcasting platforms in October.

Social media is a very powerful tool, given your massive following, what are some of the challenges you face when it comes to marketing your brand and maintaining a solid following? One of the biggest challenges I face is social media censorship. I am now on my fourth Instagram, am constantly locked out of TikTok, banned from Twitter, and it seems that I have to constantly watch what I say. I think it’s also hard to be taken seriously when I show my body off since a lot and people have this notion that you can’t show your body, work hard, and have self-respect. I’ve made it my mission to help break these kinds of harmful stigmas with my podcast and my platforms.

Can you give us a breakdown of a typical day in the life of a glamourous model on set? The key to having a God-like complex to feel confident while I am shooting is to drink Red Bull. It gives me “the wings” to change all my outfits and give direction to the photographer of angles that I like. Communication between models and photographers is crucial. By the time the photoshoot is done, I am exhausted and sleep like a baby. Fun fact, I value sleep more than anything else.

What are some of the biggest misconceptions people have about what you do? That my day-to-day is simply making content for only fans. Being a business owner is challenging now that I’m trying to build out a successful podcast, music career, and build my nonprofit organization. There is so much to unpack on a day-to-day that people just have no idea how invested you have to mentally and physically be to launch and operate three businesses successfully. 

Now we know there are some pretty perks that come with being a beautiful woman, what would say are your favorite ones? Beauty is internal and the perk of accepting myself is knowing that I can be a positive influence and role model for other women out there. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that I know men love and purchase my content along with being invited to exclusive events.

 Given that you’re a stunning woman who undoubtedly gets a lot of attention, what are some of the nicest things men have done to try and get your attention? Respect my boundaries. On the other hand, there have been men seeking to pay large sums of money just to go on a date because they enjoy my humor. I find that flattering 

What makes you feel absolutely sexy? Making OnlyFans content allows me to get in touch with my sensuality. Breaking free of generational norms when it comes to openly revealing my body has been impactful in accepting myself. It makes me feel great knowing that I can confidently show my body and be proud of who I am and what I do.

3 things that you can’t go a day without? First and foremost, my fur baby ‘Wubz’, she’s my pride and joy! Over the past year, I’ve begun to incorporate routine meditation, and daily journaling which has made a profound difference in my life today. Lastly, music. I’m a big electronic music fan, dubstep to be specific. 

Anything exciting we should be on the lookout for coming through this year from you? Yes, the launch of my podcast ‘That’s OFfensive’ gives curators who push social norms and societal boundaries a place to share their stories and how they’ve made it against the odds. I’ve been a pianist for the majority of my life so I’ve been learning how to incorporate that into my passion for DJing and music production. This year I’ll be creating a lot of content around music and collaborating with influencers so people will definitely get to see a new side of me which I’m excited about! I’m also in the process of starting a nonprofit that’s purpose is to help animal rescues save more dogs. 

Where can our readers find out more about you and stay updated with your current events and adventures? I’ll be documenting the journey as an entrepreneur and content curator on social media as I venture into new territories and build out my career. Go to my website itsdeelz.com and follow my Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and all my social endeavors. Make sure to tune in to my podcast ‘That’s OFfensive’ that airs every Tuesday on Spotify, Apple, and YouTube!

Thank you so much for sitting down with us and letting us get to know you! Any last words for our readers out there? Thanks so much for getting to know me!
