Were you excited to shoot for FHM? I’m was very excited to shoot for FHM! FHM gets a bad reputation around the world as a promoter of male dominance and sexism, and as a decidedly sexy feminist who’s done several men’s magazine covers, I know that’s not true. I have a career, lead an independent life, and haven’t had to get married as soon as possible, and FHM welcomes me again and again. My beauty and sexuality don’t exist for men’s approval; they’re mine to own and enjoy. Sex is not evil; it’s lovely. FHM and I know that. So once again, I’m honored to be a part of this magazine. Relax folks; sexy stuff is fun. Hasn’t 2020 been hard enough? Calm down and be happy for a few moments… my photos are supposed to bring fun. It’s not always a battle, haha.

Tell us something surprising about you? I’m a commercially licensed pilot and flight instructor, an MBA, and a member of MENSA (which is relatively meaningless, as IQ only measures what’s called fluid and crystallized intelligence — problem-solving and reasoning ability — not other vital traits that also matter for a successful life. That said, for a sexy woman, I’m a rare brainiac and gear head. So there! Haha.

Describe yourself in one sentence… In one sentence, I’m just your neighbor, your friend, another flawed soul trying her best to survive.

What are some of your hobbies? Marksmanship (shooting is fun, sorry folks it just is), skiing (Colorado powder in the trees, in winter, is my happy place), and playing piano really reduces stress, and it’s been a lifesaver in crazy 2020!

What is your biggest turn on? My biggest turn on is a powerful, healthy, sane, calm, loyal man.

What turns you off the most? What turns me off the most is a man who throws his hot dog down every hallway, if you know what I mean.

Describe to us your perfect date… A private jet to any new destination for a weekend of obscene luxury, and some shopping on the way home.

What would you consider to be your biggest challenge as a model so far? The biggest challenge for me as a model is being taken seriously in other parts of my life, when people know I’ve modeled in the Playboy style. When one is comfortable with one’s sexuality in America, one gets a lot of hate, and can even suffer badly at the hands of others who are, apparently envious and hateful that a woman would dare to make such a choice. It’s caused me harm, for sure, to choose this lifestyle. But I remain unapologetic and unashamed. Hopefully, someday this world will become sane… who knows, haha.

Any last words you would like to share with our readers? The last words I’d like to share with your readers are just “more love, less hate.”
