Tell us a bit about yourself.
I was born in Bournemouth, England and was fortunate to grow up travelling many different countries and places, skiing and boating and I believe myself to be quite cultured. I moved over to sunny Australia with my family when I was 12, which I’m very thankful for. I grew up in Sydney then moved to the Gold Coast where I went to university to become a Dietitian which is what I am today.
What would people be most surprised to know about you?
I always like to keep myself looking and feeling good, dressing up and wearing nice things for dinners and going on nice holidays, but I’m certainly not afraid to get dirty and rough it whether it’s camping out with no showers, going on overnight hikes with all belongings and tent on my back or competing in competitions like the Tough Mudder. I like to think I’m a good mix between classy and tomboy.
How long have you been modelling?
Modelling is a new thing for me – shooting for MAXIM is only my second photo shoot ever – and it’s always been a huge dream of mine. Although I have an outgoing personality, getting in front of the camera and posing is something that daunted me. The older I get the less I bother about what people think of me and I’m just happy living my life to the fullest and I want the same for everyone around me.
When do you feel sexy?
When I’ve just come off the beach, I’m tanned, music is playing whilst I shower and then slip on a robe to get ready to go out for dinner.
What is your best asset?
My hair as it’s natural and I don’t have to do anything to it. Otherwise, my gratefulness for everything I have had, have and will have.
What do you look for in a man?
Someone who is down to earth, loving and has drive! Someone not afraid of a good time and I value honesty, true happiness and supportiveness. Is that too much to ask?
Wouldn’t have thought so. What’s next for you?
Photo shoots, photo shoots and more photo shoots! I now have lots of goals within modelling I want to achieve with this newfound courage. Alongside this, I’ll be launching my own online dietitian and fitness plans so keep your eyes peeled!
