Such an absolute honor to have you on Playboy! Talk to us about your career and what made you get into the industry? Thank you so much for your consideration, it’s been a dream of mine to be a Playboy model. Even from a young age, I remember picking up a Playboy with Pamela Anderson on the front cover looking glamorous, That’s when I knew I wanted to be a playboy model. My career had taken off at 19 years old, I’ve traveled all over the world doing exactly what I loved and it’s opened other opportunities. Living in a small town in Virginia at the time, I never would’ve thought I would see as much as the world with my career.
What is your favorite thing to do? My favorite thing to do is modeling in exotic locations that most people will never be able to see.
What does it mean for you to be seen as a strong, intelligent and ambitious woman? Independent because I never wanted to rely on another person and love the freedom of doing what I wanted.
What would you say makes you stand out in the industry? My ability to be a Chameleon where I can easily adapt to any setting.
What put the biggest smile on your face? Spending time with my friends, family, and my dog. I am a fur mom at heart.
What are some of your biggest passions? One of my biggest passions is being the best model I can be and taking my success to the top. Another big passion of mine is becoming a great actress one day and to prove more of my talents.
Three ultimate deal breakers when it comes to men. I would have to say the first one would be being very disrespectful towards me in any way because I was raised in a household Where women were treated like goddesses. The second dealbreaker would have to be not good hygiene, you have to take of yourself in every way. Lastly would have to be no ambition because I am very ambitious, and I want to have a team like a of relationships where a man and a woman both trying to build an empire.
What are some of the things that attract you to a man? There are many things but the most attractive thing for me is how confident he is with himself in which it makes you very confident in motivated with yourself. Another attractive thing to me is what I see in a man is him putting an effort into being interested in my interests and actually wanting to get to know me.
What is the most daring thing you’ve ever done? I’ve experienced a lot of crazy adventures in my life, but I think the most daring would have to be modeling in some locations where I could’ve easily gotten hurt but had to get the shot.
What is the best way to approach you as an admirer? I’m a very easy-going type of person. But the best way would be to have humor and respect towards me.
Where can our readers catch up with you and stay updated with your work? My readers can find me on my Instagram is where I mostly show my work and most active on there as well.
We are so happy to have gotten to know you a little bit! Any last words out there for your readers? Thank you so much and it’s been a true honor! Thank you all for supporting me and can’t wait to see what the future has in store.
