What do you like about modelling?
I love that I can shoot with the most amazing photographers in the world, in fact being a model gave me the opportunity to travel the globe. I get to meet new people and experience things I never would have without modelling.
Describe your best or worst photo shoot experience as a model?
Best life changing photo shoot was with Steven Wayda. I got to stay at the Playboy Mansion and meet Hef.

Vanilla latte with extra sugar and trash TV.
