Tell us something surprising about you? I am a huge comic book nerd and frequent Comicon’s as much as I am able to. Dressing up in Cosplay is one of my favourite things to do!

Were you excited to shoot for Playboy? I was both nervous and excited. Everyone was so supportive and nice it was a truly amazing experience.

What inspires you? I am extraordinarily lucky to have such supportive and loving people in my life. They really inspire me to go out of my comfort zone. 

Why did you choose to pursue a career in modelling? I like to try new things, and when the opportunity to model came I jumped on it! I was lucky to be at the right place at the right time.

Who do you look up to in the modelling industry? I have always looked up to Marissa Miller. I used to have pictures of her posted around my home to motivate me to go to the gym.

What are some of your hobbies? I love to read, I play the cello, and have recently started boxing.

Name three things on your bucket list… Start a business, go hot air ballooning, and use my time and skills to help people.

Turn-ons… Muscular calves, sense of humour, intelligence, and a love of comic books definitely doesn’t hurt. 

Turn-offs… Being overly aggressive, speaking over people, unwilling to try new things, and bad breath.

Describe to us your perfect date… I personally dread first dates, so my perfect date would be one in which I forget I am on a date. We both have a natural conversation and laugh. I hate feeling like I am playing 20 questions because it takes the intimacy out of getting to know each other.

Which world capital would you most like to visit, and why? I would love to visit Tokyo. I love Japanese culture and food. I have also promised my sister that I would visit it with her so hopefully, we can go this year. 

What is your mantra? No one can make you happy but yourself.
