Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m an American girl from a very small country town in the state of Oklahoma. I was raised around fast cars, dirt bikes, guns and fishing. I never thought I could be a model growing up, because I stopped growing when I hit a whole whopping 157cm, but look where I am!

What would you do if you weren’t modelling?
I’ve been modelling for a little under a year but if I wasn’t I’d probably be dancing on tour for a music artist.

What is your best asset?
My eyes and hair. Eyes can always tell a story – they tell thoughts and emotions through a photo without even saying a word – I love that. And I love the saying, “Letting your hair down” because I love to let loose during a photo shoot and just have fun.

When do you feel sexy?
In front of a camera wearing nothing but heels. I think a woman’s body is a piece of natural art and comes in various shapes and forms – being able to be confident in your own skin is sexy.

What’s one thing men should always remember about women?
Women are unpredictable. We have emotions that range from day to day because our hormones are crazy and sometimes our bodies tell us differently. We also like to change our minds a lot – if you didn’t already know! And we love sex just as much as men – we all may not say it but it’s true. 

What do you look for in a man?
Someone who is just as spontaneous and light-hearted as me and who I can connect with on a level where he knows what I’m thinking without even speaking. Even though I’m very independent I look for someone who can support me, not only in my career but also with a little stability at home. Ultimately, I look for someone who is willing to explore life with the mindset that life is short. 

What’s next for you?
Short term, I will be shooting again with MAXIM Australia in a couple months and I couldn’t be any more excited! Long term, I’m working towards an acting career where I would love to be casting for movies, events and possibly a host.
