Tell us a bit about your shoot – where, when, the idea behind it, etc… We had the idea to go out in the desert to an old pony express stop. I felt right at home with the wonderful family that owns it. They always keep it new by changing out props and cars and it’s a super fun location to take pictures and visit!
How would you describe yourself in five words? Loyal, kind, loving, respectful, efficient.
Give us a little more background about yourself and your life story so far. I’m a small-town girl from California, USA. I love anything outdoors. I grew up playing in the dirt and that’s never changed. I’m always out and about finding my next adventure whether it be snowboarding, surfing, riding my dirt bike, or paddleboarding. I really connect with nature.
What is your best asset? Physically and otherwise. Everyone always tells me – my dark blue eyes! I’m extremely organized, a psychotic planner, and very efficient.
What would people be most surprised to know about you? I’m extremely flexible.
What have you learned about men over the years? They have feelings as much as we do and are looking for someone who can understand and connect with them. I think sometimes we treat men like they don’t have emotions and we need to be conscious of each other and the experience we are all having as humans. Compassion is key to humanity.
What’s one thing men should always know about women? Women love to be loved!
What do you look for in a man? Someone who is confident in themselves – they have to know who they are.
Describe your ideal date. Paddleboarding around the lake and stopping on the beach to have lunch.
What can we get you at the bar? Truly, please!
Got a hangover cure? Lots of water before bed… then a Netflix marathon!
What’s your best hidden talent? I can accomplish anything I put my mind to.
Do you have any phobias? Snakes!
Who is your girl crush and why? (OK to name a few if you want) Paris Hilton Megan Fox Kylie Jenner I love supporting strong women!
What’s the freakiest/weirdest thing someone has sent you via social media? The amount of unsolicited dick pictures I get is mind-blowing. Please keep those to yourself.
What’s next for you? Any exciting projects on the horizon you can share with us? I have a feature in Maxim Aus Calendar 2022! Check it out.
Finally, where would you like to be in five years? I would like to be anywhere with a beach and a good book!
