Cover Story shot by Tony Piazza @piazzapix
How did you start modelling?
It all started when I was asked by hairdressing company to do a photo shoot for them. I was keen to give it a try as all my friends had always wanted me to try it. Once I was in front of the lens for the first time that was it, I was hooked and I knew then that it was something I would love to pursue.
Tell us what are you into besides modelling?
I love travelling and adventure activities – that’s essentially the two things in my life that excite me the most. There’s so many places to explore and so many things I want to try, the world is an incredible place and I want to have at least tried everything once!
Who is your favorite artist?
I’m into all types of music, anything with a beat I can dance or drum along to. Justin Timberlake would have to be one of my favourites, I’ve been to a few of his concerts and he just blows me away every time but I also have an inner rock goddess in me that comes out every now and then.
Did you grow up with a large family?
No – The complete opposite! I was an only child with no immediate family around me, so it was very quiet at home! Luckily I had two twin boys that I grew up with who were like brothers to me. Needless to say, I was a bit of a tomboy growing up.
What do you do in your free time?
I love to train and keep fit, try new things and explore new places. When I have time off I like to hit the slopes and go snowboarding or if not the slopes then definitely the surf and sand.
What’s the biggest city you’ve been to?
Tokyo in Japan would have to be one of the biggest cities I’ve been to, I stayed there for a week before I went to the ski slopes in Niseko and tried out the powder snow on the runs there. New York would have to be the second biggest, the size of New York and the amount of people there was quite overwhelming, especially in comparison to my hometown Perth with a total population of roughly 2 million.
What’s your most favorite city to visit?
I love Miami, there’s something about the place that is different to everywhere else. It has a cool vibe, interesting culture, awesome beaches and there’s so many restaurants and clubs to explore. It definitely is one city that sets itself apart from the rest of the world.
What place do you have on your list to go to before you die?
I am dying to go to the Greek Islands or even Val Thorens in France to hit the slopes. Like I said it’s either the surf or the snow for me! I’m either a snow bunny or a beach bunny, I like the extremes! Mind you I’m not planning on waiting too long before I go there.
Do you like pets? Do you own any?
I love pets and I absolutely love animals, they have such a personality. At the moment with modelling I have such a hectic travel schedule so it wouldn’t be fair to have one at this current point in my life. Definitely looking at a puppy in the future though.

What turns you on about a man?
I love a sexy smile and confidence in a man. There is nothing better than someone who can make you laugh until your sides ache, nothing turns me on more than that!
What exciting things do you have coming up?
I’m heading to Las Vegas soon to make an appearance at an event as Miss Tropic Beauty 2015 and I also have a couple of campaign shoots whilst I’m there. Really looking forward to it and this time I get to bring one of my besties over with me, so it’s going to be a lot of fun!
