If you spend much time on the web, odds are you’ve seen Miki before. Miki works regularly for such companies as Trashy Lingerie, Sinful Clothing, and Benchwarmer Trading Cards. You can also catch a glimpse of her in a scene or two on the tube every now and then. “The most recent one being CSI New York which will be airing this fall.”
“I am also a musician and have been since childhood. I sing and play the piano and guitar, both classical and electric. Formerly, I was the guitarist for the band ANYONE and am now working on a solo project, where I am both singing and playing guitar.”
