Tell us a bit about yourself? I’m a bit of a nerd to be honest and love taking things apart, TVs, iPhones, men, whatever I can get my hands on. 

What was your initial reaction when you were chosen to shoot for FHM? I was so excited! FHM has an iconic reputation and it’s always been on my bucket list. 

How do you prepare for a shoot? Sleep sleep sleep! You can’t get enough sleep before a shoot. They can be intensive and require a lot of focus so it’s important to get that shut-eye. 

Describe your perfect man: He’s cute, assertive and kind. He has to be able to not take himself too seriously though as all work and no play is not my thing.

What is your ideal date? On a date, I want to feel like a princess and be swept off my feet. Doesn’t every woman?

What do you do for fun? Shopping, more shopping and when I’m not shopping I’m making spreadsheets of things to acquire when shopping. Also playing with my puppy. 

Tell us a bit about your most embarrassing moment? I can get a little clumsy when I’m nervous. One time I went on a date and instead of taking a sip of my cocktail I ended up spilling it over us both. Thankfully we both laughed and still laugh about it to this day.

What would you say is the most difficult part about being a model? Modeling is a very competitive industry, so you must find out quickly what type of modeling you’re suited for and good at then stick to it. Fashion, catwalk, glamour, etc. It can be difficult for people who focus on the wrong area and that’s just going to be an uphill struggle. 

Lastly, what is your life motto or a quote that means a lot to you? Always start the day positively. Don’t dwell in the past when it’s what we do in the present that shapes the future.
