You may have seen me swirl wine, fondle jewels, twist lipstick…and perhaps, push a few buttons. Hi, I’m a hand model ? Technically speaking, I’m a parts model since my body parts are frequently featured in advertising. My mitts however are my primary money makers, and have lent a hand to countless campaigns, from Dior to Dominos. Occasionally my parts double for celebrities, such as Katy Perry, Penelope Cruz, Natalie Portman, and more.


I didn’t plan for a career in parts. As a kid, I never once looked longingly upon a star to whisper, “One day my hands will be all over the woooorld!”

I grew up on a (manic) organic commune in California, and dreamed primarily of returning to ‘normality’ in New Orleans, with my large Italian food-biz family.

I’ve always been told I had nice hands (mainly by my grandmother), but it wasn’t until a random casting with OPI nail polish that I booked my first hand job.

I live primarily in Malibu California, and work mostly in New York City.

When I first moved to Hollywood, I had dreams of becoming SOMEBODY. (Little did I know I’d become somebody’s body.)

I love what I do, yet try to contribute more to society than nice nail beds. So I write a silly yet heartfelt blog called HAND JOBS: Tales of a Hand Model.

After years of loving labor, I launched a skincare brand and my lotion love-child, Essentiel by Adele was born! She was first conceived in the kitchen…

After much obsessing and perfecting, I fell in love with the homemade moisturizer and my friends began asking for more. So I teamed up with a top formulator and set out to spread the lotion love!
