Happy to have you feature on Playboy! Can you give us a bit of a background on your career as a model and where it all started? Growing up as an Asian American in Southern California, I was really into the import model scene, especially after The Fast and Furious. I dreamed about posing in front of a car and signing calendars. My first “shoot” was me helping a friend’s streetwear brand take off when I was about 16. I’d say along the way I pivoted and became a fetish/kink/boudoir model! I love feeling sexy and creating titillating images. I love men and making them feel good.
What are some of your best career highlights so far? You mean, besides getting on the cover of Playboy?! I’ve always wanted to be in a physical print. I just recently got onto Maxim Australia as well. Haha, I briefly ran for Miss Philippines a few years ago. To even be considered for that was and is such a big deal to me. I’m also an Onlyfans creator and have generated over 3 million USD in sales.
Social media is a very powerful tool, given your massive following, what are some of the challenges you face when it comes to marketing your brand and maintaining a solid following? As an adult content creator, I face frequent censorship and shadow banning. I’m on my 7th Instagram account. I’m on my 13th TikTok. You can’t kill me, I’ll keep coming back stronger. I’ve been a good girl on my social media lately, so hopefully these platforms stick for me! My goal right now is to hold onto a sense of notoriety and longevity so that my supporters can always find me.
Can you give us breakdown of a typical day in the life of a glamourous model on set? I wake up around 7am, and I hit the gym hard. Then I get my makeup and hair done, and I’m off to do my scene! Lately it’s becoming so social for me because it feels like I just get to see my friends all day! After all is said and done, I’ll ideally binge watch something on Netflix next to some Thai food. After work, I’m kind of a homebody. I’ve been watching more anime and going outside a little less, so I think I’m becoming an adult! Haha.
What are some of the biggest misconceptions people have about what you do? People think that all I have to do is show up. Be cute. But they don’t see the early days, long nights, the customer service and marketing that actually goes into everything. It’s easy to write me off as some bimbo, but everything you see about me is on purpose and meant to create discussion. I was a marketing executive prior to being in adult entertainment and a lot of that has really helped me explode in a lot of ways others don’t get to see.
Now we know there are some pretty perks that come with being a beautiful woman, what would say are your favourite ones? My favorite perk is that I feel validated everywhere I go. I’m very open about how I’ve gotten surgeries to feel sexier. I would say people were always kind to me, but now I have the courage to say yes to certain opportunities I wouldn’t have done when I was a little less confident. I feel good about myself, and I feel like that energy attracts better energy around me.
Given that you’re a stunning woman who undoubtedly gets a lot of attention, what are some of the nicest things men have done to try and get your attention? I remember during COVID, I was so sad about lockdown. My partner at the time turned our little apartment into a fake club and restaurant. Our roommates were the fake waiters and bartenders and we pretended like things were normal for a second. It was so sweet and I felt really seen in that moment.
What makes you feel absolutely sexy? I feel sexy in nice lingerie, all dolled up. I love male attention when given respectfully, I love to turn men on. I feel sexy knowing you think I’m sexy.
3 things that you can’t go a day without? I can’t go without memes, carbs, and an orgasm.
Anything exciting we should be on the lookout for coming through this year from you? I’m gonna become a household name. You’ll see me around. I’m looking to branch outside of my adult entertainment career and get onto more safe for work platforms, like podcasts and streaming! I’ve also been collaborating with some amazing performers (since this is Australia, I love working with Angela White!)
