How did you get started in the modeling industry? What inspired you to become a model? I always wanted to be a model since I was a little girl, but I didn’t start until I was 20. Back then, I did it for fun while working in real estate. After a few years, I felt unhappy with my job, so I decided to become a full-time model. I’ve been really happy with that choice ever since.
Best place you have ever been to in the world? The best place I’ve ever been in the world is Cabo, Mexico. I absolutely love it there!
What are some of your biggest dreams you hope to achieve? I’m constantly imagining the next magazine cover I’d love to be featured on. It would be amazing to make it on the cover of FHM again, possibly on the USA edition. Another dream of mine is to be on the cover of Playboy once more. I’d also love to collaborate with some of my favorite brands like Honey Birdette and Fashion Nova.
What does freedom of self-expression mean to you? Freedom of self-expression to me means you can be yourself completely, without worrying about what others might think or say.
How do you prepare physically and mentally for a photo shoot that will be seen by so many people? Physically: The day before a big photoshoot, I like to get in a good workout, like reformer pilates. I focus on eating healthy, balanced meals that make me feel good. I also make sure to get a good night’s sleep, usually about 8 hours. Mentally: The morning of, I try to focus on positive self-talk. I say affirmations to boost my confidence. I also have a few music playlists I like to listen to that make me feel empowered and confident.
What are your favorite aspects of modeling, and what challenges have you encountered along the way? I really enjoy the creative side of modeling. I get to work with many talented people and help bring their ideas to life, which is so exciting. However, there are tough times, too. Some days, I feel less motivated and inspired. It happens to everyone, but finding ways to deal with it can be a challenge.
Who are some of the models or influencers that you admire and draw inspiration from in your career? I have always drawn inspiration from the models of the 90s and early 2000s that I grew up watching, like Gisele, Naomi, Shalom, and Cindy.
What’s one thing about yourself that your fans might be surprised to learn? Surprisingly, I’m an introvert! While I can be outgoing and extroverted in work and social situations, in my downtime, I usually prefer to be alone or just with family and close friends.
3 things that you can’t go a day without. Caffeine, my skincare regimen, and Snuggles from my dogs.
If you could choose one word to describe your journey as a model so far, what would it be, and why? Adventurous! Since becoming a full-time model, I’ve had the opportunity to travel to many amazing places.
What do you believe sets you apart from other models in the industry? I think what makes me stand out from other models is my versatility. I can seamlessly switch between different styles, from glamorous and editorial shoots to more artistic erotic, and fetish content. Not many models have experience in both the glamour side of modeling and the erotic and fetish side of modeling.
Many aspiring models look up to FHM cover models. What advice would you give to someone trying to break into the modeling industry? Don’t let the fear of rejection hold you back, as it did for me. Remember, there’s a place for every type of model in this industry; you just have to find yours.
Can you share any exciting upcoming projects or collaborations you’re involved in? After many fan requests, I have officially launched my fetish production company, where I’ll be releasing new FemDom clips every week! Fans can find this content linked through my IG account. I’m also working on a really cool magazine cover that will come out in early 2024!
