What would people be most surprised to learn about you?
That I can sing. I don’t really like singing in intimate situations so during this trip the MAXIM team made me sing every night in front of everyone to help me improve my confidence and get me out of my comfort zone.

What would you do if you weren’t modelling?
Well, I work as a make-up artist and cosmetic tattooist – I did all the girls’ hair & make-up for this trip – but I’ve been modelling on-and-off since I was 21.

What’s your best asset?
My skin. I get a lot of compliments about my skin tone – it’s that Bali glow! I’m a Gold Coast girl, born and bred but have spent quite a bit of time living in Bali with my family.

When do you feel sexy?
When I’m dancing. 

What have you learnt about men over the years?
Literally nothing. Just when I think I have men worked out, and I know what’s going on, something shifts and I’m back to square one.

What do you look for in a man?
Someone that’s taller than me, but that’s not difficult. Kindness and patience is essential though.

Where would you like to be in five years? 
I would like to have a successful music career.
