When did you start modeling?
I started Modeling 2 years ago and haven’t looked back since.
What was it that got you into modeling?
I had been frequently approached by local photographers, and loved creating art and began to learn a lot about the business.
Do you remember the first photographer you ever shot with?
Yes! Todd Gilis for the Toronto Sun Sunshine Girl
What was that like?
It was exciting… and a learning curve at the same time… you begin to learn a lot more about yourself and become more aware of your body and how to use it! ;)
Have you ever shot with him/her again?
No actually. I have not seen Todd since that day.
What was it like shooting for Paul Venomous?
It was a lot of fun in a very professional atmosphere. It was my first time in Montreal and left with a great impression and fun memories! I would shoot with Paul Venomous anytime!
What does it feel like seeing yourself in a magazine?
I feel a great sense of accomplishment and it fuels my fire to keep pushing myself to continue to grow and achieve more in this industry.
Have you ever been published in any other magazines yet? If so, which ones?
This is the first time I have ever been published in a magazine, so it is a great accomplishment for me. I have been published in multiple calendars sold internationally so being published in a magazine is a first!
What are your goals in modeling, where would you like to see modeling take you?
I would like to continue with much more published work... build my own website and see where all my hard work takes me… opportunities are endless.
Are you currently in school or working outside of modeling? If yes to either, what are you studying/where are you working?
Yes to all of the above! I would have to say that modeling is my main priority at this time. When I am not modeling… I am bartending. I am also in the process of getting my real estate licence! I have so many goals I find that days are too short! But enjoy the challenges along the way.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Spare time!? What is that?? I enjoy my fire place with a bottle of Red wine, hanging out on the beach with my girls, or shooting!
Do you have any hidden talents?
Hmm….not that I can think of… I’m pretty normal!
What would be your idea of the perfect first date?
A scorching hot day on the beach… with a couple of cold beers, and good stimulating and intellectual conversation.
What is the best and the worst pick up line you have ever had used on you?
Worst one… “Wanna F@#K?” A little blunt.
Best one was bartending on Canada a day… I asked a group of guys what time the fireworks started … one replied with “whenever you get off work baby.” It wasn’t pre meditated and made me laugh.
What are a few of your turn on’s?
Driven with Ambition, Intelligence, Considerate, Funny, Good sense of Humour, Keeping Fit and in shape.
What are a few of your turn off’s?
Laziness, No Goals, Selfishness, and Self Centered.
Describe yourself in 5 words, go!
Fun, Ambitious, Spontaneous, Driven, Easy Going
What is one thing most people do not know about you?
That I do my house chores in nothing but slippers and a ponytail. ;)
What song would you be embarrassed for people to know is on your iPod right now?
I wish I had an iPod!
What does the future hold for you?
Success! I won’t stop till I’m dead!
