He grew up in San Luis Obispo, California, but there is no information about his education and life before his career in entertainment started. He was a male editorial model for several magazines based in California, but after being advised by Mike Ruiz, a photographer, he packed his bags and was off to New York. He first started working as a makeup artist, but at the same time, honed his performing and modeling skills, and was slowly penetrating the world of drag.

Soon after he was approached by photographer Mary McCartney, and his pictures could have been found in the book “Devoted”, by the aforementioned photographer. His next venture was the photo series “Half-Drag” made by Leland Bobbé. At the time, he was in his new character, which brought attention from several magazines, including Vogue Italia. Furthermore, he was in the lenses of such photographers as Rob Lebow and Masha Kupets.

Now a celebrated drag performer, Miss Fame auditioned for RuPaul’s Drag Race, and got a spot in the show’s seventh season. Unfortunately, he was eliminated before the end of the show and finished as seventh overall. Nevertheless, this appearance further increased his net worth and popularity, and also encouraged him to pursue further his career.

The same year, he started chasing a musical career, and in 2015 released his debut single “Rubber Doll”, and soon after, the full-length album “Beauty Marked”, which reached No. 17 on the US Dance chart.

Most recently, he has also launched an acting career; he made his debut in the comedy film “A Change of Heart” (2017), starring Aimee Teegarden, Virginia Madsen and Kathy Najimy, which also added to his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, Miss Fame has been married to Patrick Bertschy since 2013; he regards himself as gender fluid.
