First gracing the stage with local Spokane, WA burlesque troupe Pasties & Paddles in late 2011, Gigi had aspirations of taking her dream to perform burlesque and turned it into reality. She's a self-taught teaser who knows how to shimmy, shake, and bump her way around a stage.
Winning Spokane's RAW Artists 2012 Performing Artist of the Year was a feat that fueled her desire to take her talents to the next level.
Gigi embodies subtle humor in her performances aiming to showcase a dirtier side of innocence: an ode to her favorite style of vintage pinup art and what she likes to call a "cheesecake twist."
Moving to San Diego for a year she was honored to perform alongside burlesque legends like Shannon Doah and Kitten DeVille in Lola Demure's "Too Hot To Handle" Dixie Evans fundraising show. After this she took a small hiatus from performing and modeling to cook a couple buns in the oven and focus a bit on her new life as a Burly-Q baby wrangler.
Now Gigi is back to business here in Eastern Washington with plans of traveling for performances,yet her primary focus is helping grow her local burlesque community. "Collaboration is key in our ever growing Spokane burlesque scene."
Producer of Bottoms Up!- Spokane's first and only burlesque brunch she brings something new and joyous to Spokane. In collaboration with Michael Wiley owner of Wiley's downtown bistro, Bottoms Up! launched its first two day show Bloomsday weekend of 2018. She wants to share her love of this timeless performance art through providing nothing less than enticing entertainment.
