How did you start modeling?
I started modelling by working with a friend named Brad Lowe just for fun. A few months later i put the images on a modelling site and i haven’t looked back since!
What do you think of the work as a model?
I think its the dream job, you get to choose your own working hours, choose who you work with, set your own rates, travel. I get to meet so many interesting people and do things that never would have happened if i didnt start modelling.
What is your beauty regimen?
I wash my face every morning, wear make-up only when im going out of have a shoot so i can let my skin breath. I moisterise daily and use Oil to remove make-up, then face wash and cleanser. I wash my hair once every 2-3 days. And my skins naturally quite soft but if it gets dry i use coconut oil which works really well.
What are your plans for the future?
Get a Minibus/Van type thing and travel the country modelling in different area’s and exploring them, maybe go abroad to america or europe for abit.

Definately skiing! when i went down my first green slope through the forest on my own and didn’t fall! And when i got my rythem going on my second holiday and went really fast, one of the best feelings ever!
