The Traveling Muse

Tulum, Mexico. 2019.

Most days I can be found in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Other days, I’m off traveling the world and creating photo + video art, offering companionship and BDSM/Fetish sessions, or simply exploring. Don’t see your city on my travel schedule? Consider Flying Me to You, available worldwide for clients, photographers, and filmmakers. You can also reach out to express interest anytime, from anywhere, so that I may contact you when plans get made to visit your area (pre-screened inquiries are very encouraging).

Fly Me To You

Pack me into your suitcase and we'll make every trip a sensual getaway. Let me brighten your dreary work trips, or we can escape the daily grind and explore someplace new. As a seasoned traveler, I can be trusted to get around with ease and total respect for local cultures. With a multitude of interests, I can enjoy a variety of sights, from the local dive bar or rusty spoon to a high-end benefit and Michelin star restaurant.

Travel for FMTY appointments is considered with expenses and a deposit of 50% prepaid. Below you’ll find a catalogue of endless travel ideas I’ve compiled for you, but you’re more than welcome to suggest other destinations! Travel potential is never limited to the U.S; I have an eagerness to see as much of the world as I can during my time here. Package rates are also available for trips of more than two days total from my wishlist. I’m more than happy to plan out sight-seeing and accomodations for us, as well as follow your lead.

Date Ideas

Miami

During the day, we can visit the Wynwood art neighborhood before shopping in the Miami Design District. After lunch, we’ll have a lot of galleries to chose from, picking and choosing from the Perez Art Museum, De la Cruz Collection, ARTECHOUSE gallery, MCA, ICA, The Margulies Collection, or the American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora. Once we’ve hit our museum max, we can relax and watch the sunset on Miami Beach, later visiting the historic Art Deco district before laughing our guts out at the equally classic Olympia Theatre. If we’re feeling like exploring, we can visit the Italian estate of Vizcaya, a handful of beautiful churches, and even scuba dive the underwater Neptune Memorial Reef.

Tulum, Mexico. 2019.

Milwaukee

We can start our trip in this oft-overlooked city by climbing up the stairs of the North Point Lighthouse and lookng over the water, or seeing the aesthetic Pierhead Lighthouse against the blue sky, before seeing some cute and historic German bars and shops at Old World (3rd Street). The Black Cat mural alley will undoubtedly fill our eyes with color, while the Harley-Davidson Museum will get us all reved up for some fun adventure. We’ll have our pick of art galleries; including the free Haggerty Museum of Art, the workers-themed Grohmann Museum, a private collection at the Charles Allis Art Museum, the indie Portrait Society Gallery, the well named R&R Art Galleries, or the gigantic Milwaukee Art Museum. For architecture lovers, there’s the Milwaukee Historical Society, the Pabst Mansion, the Italian renaissance style Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, the colorful St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral, and traditional Basilica of St. Josaphat. The River Walk will give us some fresh air before heading over to the Manfred Olson Planetarium, the Discovery World science museum and aquarium, or the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory. Let’s get even weirder at the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum or the religious emporium T.H. Stemper Co., then shop for some vintage deals at Antiques on Pierce or Antiques Addicts. We can stay in the wrong decade by catching an old film at the atmospheric Avalon Theatre before getting some second-hand cancer in Shaker’s Cigar Bar, previously owned by Al Capone and now a ghost-haunt. We can retire to the one-of-a-kind Leopard Room at the Saint Kate Arts Hotel, where each unit has been commissioned by an artist, so that we’ll even sleep in style, making the most of this town!

New York City

Let’s visit a new exhibit up at the Met, Guggenheim, or MoMA, or wander around Chelsea and explore the more low-key galleries, after which, we can stay at the Standard and make use of those big windows facing the Hudson river, High Line, or downtown Manhattan. For a more tame day, let’s do a NYC church tour and take in all of the beautiful architecture, and then take the tram across the water to find some local food in Brooklyn. Feeling flamboyant? We’ll zip over to Sak’s Fifth Avenue and you can dress me up to the nines before dining at a Michelin star restaurant. At night, we can catch a show on Broadway, visit Duane Park Burlesque and Jazz Club, Pumps strip club, or play prohibition in a secret speak-easy bar.

Portland

We’re undoubtedly keeping it weird while in Portland, first by exploring the Freakybuttrue Peculiarium, The Zymoglyphic Museum, Hat Museum, or Paxton Gate curiouso shop. If we land on a Sunday morning, starting the day with Drag Street Brunch will fill our spirits with lots of laughter, while the Casa Diablo Vegan Strip Club will fill us with hearty food and lots of blood flowing to, well, you know where. If we’re feeling the need to absolve, we can do so while in awe of the beauty of the Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother Grotto. We can catch some more fresh air (and even waterfalls) at Eagle Creek Trail Park, the Rose Test Garden, Forest Park, or the quirky Troll Bridge. Getting back on the city grind, we’ll take the tram to visit the Stars Antique Mall, the French Quater, and end in the Hollywood Theatre disctrict to grab some local food. With our bellies full, we can enjoy live dance performance by BodyVos or a film at the Academy Theatre. Since Portland is the strip club capital of the U.S., we’ll be obliged to check out Devil’s Point, Rose City, Union Jack’s, and/or Lucky Devil Lounge.

San Francisco

We’ll scout the city and plan our day at the top of the Coit Tower, looking down on it all from 250+ feet from above. From there, we can take a cable car to see the classic winding Lombard Street, the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, or Japantown. The beautiful architecture is endless, which we can view at the City Hall, Mission Dolores Chapel & Basillica, St. Mary's Cathedral, the Holy Virgin Cathedral, St. Ignatius Church, St. Anne of the Sunset Church, or the San Francisco Columbarium. We can get a bit weird (in the most fun way) by playing antique games at the Musee Mecanique, visiting the unique alley way Pinhole Cinema, the Loving to Death Victorian oddities shop, or, if it’s a Sunday afternoon, the Saint John Coltrane African Orthodox Church for a live jazz service. The GLBT History Museum is a great place for exploring queer histories, while Mr S. Leather shop caters to creating more, in the now. Alcatraz will give us some history with an ocean breeze, the Camera Obscura will offer an artistic view of the coast, and The Wave Organ will calm our spirits and minds. Getting back on our feet, various galleries await; from the SFMoMA, to the Legion of Honor, de Young Art Museum, Pier 24 Photography Museum, and the Museum of the African Diaspora. We can fuel up at the Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar restaurant, known for it’s luxury food and tacky decor, before going to a live show at the San Francisco Ballet or Jazz Center, or roller skating at the Church of 8 Wheels (yes, it’s actually in a church).

Tulum, Mexico. 2019.

Seattle

Let’s start the morning off with a coffee at the Meowtropolitan cat cafe before seeing the unconventional gum wall under Pike Place Market. We’ll see some art at the MoPOP or Frye Art Museum before checking out mummified heads and other curiouso at Ye Olde Curiosity Shop. Hiking Mt. Rainier offers us some time away from the city, without going too far, while Ravenna Park is even closer. If that doesn’t satisfy our urges for nature, scuba diving at Edmonds Underwater Park or taking in the beautiful sky’s view at James Turrell’s Skyspace installation sure will. Dinner at the space needle will offer more views of the city, as well as the 360 balcany in Smith Tower, where we can indulge in some luxury drinks. After educating ourselves at the Northwest African American Museum, we can meditate in the Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple or Sakya Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism. Let’s take in more historic architecture at the Chapel of Saint Ignatius, the 100 year old St. Spiridon Cathedral, the Suzzallo Library, or the retired Union Station before grabbing some Thai food at the legendary traincar restraurant, the Orient Food Express. After sunset, we’ll enjoy live music at the Neptune Theatre, dance at the Pacific Northwest Ballet, or opera at McCaw Hall. Before we go, we’ll grab souveneirs at a unique thrift shop, such as the Seattle Antiques Market, Pacific Galleries Antique Mall, and Georgetown Trailer Park Mall.
