Vampirella.com: How did you first get into the performing
/ modeling biz?
Masuimi Max: I started modeling and performing in Vegas
when I was 18. I love the spotlight!
V.com: What attracted you to becoming a fire breather,
a model, and a contortionist - the whole "performer"
life in general?
MM: I am an exhibitionist. A friend of mine in Vegas taught
me fire eating, the rest I learned mostly on my own. Performing
gives me a natural high.

in Los Angeles, for a publication called the Collante

be familiar with her?!
V.Com: How would you describe Julie Strain as a photographer?
MM: In one word, exquisite.
V.Com: A large part of the mystique of Vampirella is
how she combines playful innocence with an erotic sensuality.
How did you capture this essence so superbly when you
were taking photos as Vampirella?
MM: I definitely do not take myself seriously when taking
photos! Sometimes when I perform, I do, but thats
only so I don't burn myself too badly! And I have to say,
as a person I am very playful!
V.Com: How did you feel when you first saw that copy
of Vampirella Present Julie Strain with your photos published
MM: I was pleasantly astonished!

You can see some examples on my own web site.
