How were you discovered?
I sent in my own headshots to Portfolio agency and was then signed.

What do you enjoy most about modelling?
Being able to portray a different character each shoot/show and meeting so many talented people in the industry in front and behind of the camera.

Finding work for my demographic in my current location.

What has been your most memorable modelling job so far?
Working with Art and Coco which is a duo made up of a husband and wife team. We had a photo shoot on the Sumner beach in Christchurch. It was a very raw and moody shoot which I loved. I was able to be creative with my posing.

How would you describe your personal style?
Street style with some sort of a statement piece whether it be jewellery, shoes or a bag.

I get a lot of inspiration from some of the high fashion models that I see online or in international magazines such as Vogue or Elle.

Some dream publications would be Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Elle Magazine.

Which photographers would you really like to work with?
To only name a couple, Chris Colls and also Daniel Jackson’s photography caught my eye and I fell in love with their work. It would be incredible to work with someone of their talents.

What do you want to do after you finish modelling?
I would love work overseas and to travel to see some of the amazing sites the world has to offer.
