Q & A

Q. What is your family background?

A. I was born in New Zealand but my family heritage include Irish, French and Spanish!

Q. Did you grow up in your early teens wanting to be a model?

A. I wanted to be a model from a very young age and was actually a child model, being featured in a magazine catalogue for the first time at age 7 and it all just grew from there I guess !

Q. What have you discovered / learnt from the modelling scene?

A. I've learnt that if an opportunity seems too good to be true, it usually is. Although if they really want you then the whole experience is easy! I've also learnt to love my body more and appreciate its positive points. When I was younger, parts of my body were used to illustrate why I couldn't be a certain type of model, and ironically those same things are the reason I have a current successful modelling profile in the glamour industry.

Q. Career highlights to date?

A. Being able to travel the world with my career has been a highlight for sure, This year I also got to submit a shoot for one of the biggest brands in the world which has been a dream of mine from when I started getting into modelling!

Q. Favourite hobbies?

A. Dancing, listening to music and working out.

Q. Favourite music?

A. I love listening to anything with a good beat although I love old school music like Guns N Roses and Elton John too!

Q. Favourite films?

A. I love the ones that make you think, so The Shawshank Redemption is up there as well as The Departed.

Q. Beauty tips?

A. Always moisturise and never go to sleep with your make up on ! A good monthly facial is something I swear by, to keep my skin clear for any shoot that could pop up with no notice !

Q. What is your fashion sense?

A. It's a mixture of modern and comfortable but I love being able to dress it up if I have to. If I could live in louboutins for the rest of my life, I would!

Q. What do you feel sexiest wearing?

A. Lingerie (if I'm honest)

Q. Advice for young girls aspiring to be models?

A. Take time for yourself. Make sure you're ready for this crazy ride and be prepared to work hard. In this day and age there are so many girls wanting to get into modelling that you have to be really unique or at least hard working to stand out. Embrace that uniqueness and never try and be something you're not!

Q. What's the craziest thing that you've done?

A. Too many to name and too naughty to print. Sorry guys! Let's just put it this way; I can't resist a dare!

Q. What's the funniest pick up line you've encountered?

A. I've heard a couple of cringe worthy ones but the only one I think makes me cringe the most is “Come here often?” If you're going to try and pick up a girl at least try and make it original, or funny enough that I'll laugh and then it's got more chance of working

Q. Favourite place visited?

A. Las Vegas, hands down! It's amazing and like a ride you never want to get off. I could live there and be perfectly content !

Q. Do you have a role model/s?

A. Growing up, teachers were my biggest role models as they inspired me to follow my dreams despite people telling me I was following an unrealistic career path. I'll be forever thankful that I listened to them and didn't give up!

Q. People you've admired generally?

A. Girls who have worked hard in the industry locally in Western Australia such as Jacinta Rokich, Emma Brown and Madison Rhys (all Zoo Magazine Covergirls). As well as international models such as Carmen Electra and Lucy Pinder. Lucy is a stand out for me. That girl can do no wrong!

Q. Are there any issues that you feel strongly about and would like to briefly discuss?

A. I think tall poppy syndrome is one of the worst problems facing us today as well as the next generation! Unfortunately, as much as I live and breathe social media, it‘s a breeding ground on a massive scale of insults, internet trolls and nasty behaviour which people can hide behind a computer screen. People need to start celebrating their peers’ achievements, not actively set out to try destroy them! I've seen this all too often and I really think some people don't realise how much their nastiness can affect someone on a deeply psychological level!

Q. Future ambitions?

A. A couple more covers at the very least! Maxim or Playboy would definitely be up there!
