How did you get started?

It was when I was 17 at Schoolies which is the Australian version of Spring Break.

Tell us about your first job:
It was a location shoot for an editorial. The first shot was me pretending to hail a
cab and they kept stopping for me! I was pretty petrified and had to change by the
side of the road in a tent. It was a really good team though.

If you weren’t modelling, what would you be doing right now?
I would be a full time student and probably a restaurant manager at Macdonalds. I
still technically work for them!

What designers would you most like to work for if you haven’t already?

Any of the major fashion houses would be really nice. I’ve always been a fan of
Alex Perry and would love to do a campaign.

What excites you the most, runway or editorial?
Runway is the most fun. I’ve always been into performing arts and runway is
similar and so exciting. Some shows have great themes, and it’s good to catch up
with the other models.

What has been your favourite moment so far in your career?
My first ever Australian Fashion Week! I walked for Romance Is Born who did a
collection with Marvel Comics. The feeling in the room was the best I’ve ever
experienced. We started at 4am and had to wear crazy red wigs and fake
eyebrows. There was so much excitement in the air.

What’s your favourite item of clothing in your wardrobe?
My leather jacket, i wear it pretty much everyday. It took me ages to find, its best
purchase I’ve ever made.

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
Teleportation. That way I could visit everywhere in the world and I could be at
home each night and see my dog. Also, I could get out of bed a lot later!

Guilty pleasure:

I don’t deny myself anything. Probably spending entire days in bed watching back
to back episode of things, I’m really into Game of Thrones and Suits at the
moment.
