Tell us a bit about your shoot – where, when, the idea behind it, etc…
Originally we had a beautiful mansion booked. Oceanside with a breathtaking infinity pool… however my flight ended up being booked for the wrong day. Epic fail! Thankfully the creative and talented Rocky came up with an amazing alternative plan and we ended up on a secluded white sandy beach. It was the perfect location to get salty, wet and sweaty under the sun.
What is your best asset? Physically and otherwise.
A boy would say my boobs. A man would say my breasts. A guy who loves me would say my eyes. I would say my strength! I’m fit with biceps of steal. Tiny but tough (I love the gym, a sports game or hike). Non-physical asset? My resilience and the ability to get shit done.
Give us a little more background about yourself and your life story so far.
Made in Vancouver, Canada, I have lived in Australia for the past 10 years and, of course, visited NZ too. It was love at first sight with New Zealand in 2010 for me. It has a very ‘West Coast’ vibe. My Business Degree lead me to graduating as a Registered Nurse. My dedication and drive is in the aesthetic / cosmetic sector of medicine. When I don’t sound like a book room I am a complete wild child. Unpredictable, with a twisted sense of humour who enjoys a night of debaucherous fun. Shhh!
What would people be most surprised to know about you?
I have mini me who is almost one.
How would you describe yourself in five words?
Loyal, Badass, Empathic, Funny, Sexual.
How long have you’ve been modelling and what would do if you weren’t modelling?
Does Insta modelling count? (*joke!) When not in a bikini rolling in the sand for a picture, I’m holidaying – avoiding reality until I’m back in the clinic working with my surgeon, creating and enhancing the beautiful aesthetic of women and men.
What have you learned about men over the years?
They all lie. You just have to be willing to set boundaries and the amount of lying you will allow yourself to tolerate!
What’s one thing men should always know about women?
In chess, the Queen protects the King. Be kind to women and treat them with respect. When all shit goes to hell, you will rely on one to save you. Hopefully you didn’t burn her or… Check Mate!
What do you look for in a man?
Someone who is authentic and doesn’t play games to hurt me for sport.
Describe your ideal date.
One with a happy ending…
What can we get you at the bar?
I’ll have a vodka soda please. Then I’ll find you at the bar.
Got a hangover cure?
Yes. It’s called brunch, or round 2. Either way, keep drinking to an afternoon slight stumble, laugh, an early movie, couch, play and pass out.
What’s your best hidden talent?
This question always makes me laugh! Well I’m ridiculously flexible, from years as a professional ballerina. I’m extremely talented at anything DIY, and I will kick your ass at Connect 4. Why won’t any of these things make me rich?
Do you have any phobias?
Garden Gnomes. I could go without.
Who is your girl crush and why? (OK to name a few if you want)
Haha, that is easy! In LA she’s hot, blonde, funny, body a 10+ and loves drunk yoga. In Melbourne she’s hot, brunette and wild – meow! ‘Canada’ and I? Well, we belong on boats together, waves and large breasts. They bounce. Plus she is cheeky AF.
What’s the freakiest/weirdest thing someone has sent you via social media?
A video of me through my home window (I live in the city). I was working out at home, in panties and a bra of course. But they sent it right when I finished and deleted the account. I was so creeped out, but I still work out in the same thing at home… hmmm?
What is your motto in life?
Energy is real and Karma is a bitch. Keep a soft heart (even at the ugliest of times) let go and the universe will sort things out when the timing is right.
What’s next for you? Any exciting projects on the horizon you can share with us?
Yes! Celebrating a first birthday, New York, Canada then snowboarding in New Zealand! It’s my first time boarding in NZ and I can’t wait! Besides tearing up the slopes, the project will be an epic girl on girl snowball fight? Board, boots, glove, bikini and a babe-type look. Thoughts? Haha.
Finally, where would you like to be in five years?
M.I.A. and happy 🙂
