Can you tell us a little bit about what you do and when you got into it?

I am a photographic and runway model, influencer and lifestyle vlogger!  I’ve been modelling for about 2-3 years now and my social media kicked off a bit ago. I just started taking pride and care with my photo’s, stopped taking photo’s I thought people wanted to see, and just highlighted what I liked. Then it sort of happened!!

How’s your year been so far? Any major highlights?

Had the best summer of my life adventuring and exploring new places every day.  A highlight would have been modelling for world famous artist Charles Billich, winning the Global Blogger Challenge for MINKPINK & Lipault Paris and being asked to become an ambassador for Bully Zero Australia Foundation – a charity very close to my heart.

What song have you got on repeat at the moment?

“Lush Life” by Zara Larsson

What fashion advice do you have for a man?

Iron your clothes and you will look 75% better hahaha!

What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?

Graphic design shirt, I think boys look better in simple colour tops and pants.

Any major plans for 2016?

TRAVEL – I love exploring!  I just got back from Fiji, I am currently in Los Angeles USA,  then heading to the Maldives & Hawaii and Thanks to MINKPINK & Lipault Paris I am also heading to Tokyo, Singapore and Bali! To finish the year, I am heading to Fiji again in December!  That’s what is planned so far, so who knows what else could pop up in between 🙂

What is your one guilty pleasure?
