2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?

I love getting out and exploring Los Angeles. I am a sucker for downtown and all its architecture. I love the beach. I love getting lost in the mountains above Pasadena. Where I grew up it was so flat you could see for miles, but here you have to get to the top to see it all. Its one of the greatest cities in the world!


.3. Favorite clients from the biz?
My favorite client?! I could never pick. I have met so many great clients and fellow models. This industry is full of some of the most extraordinary people.


4. Dreams/goals, any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
I would love to travel more. I always have such fun when clients send me all around the world and I hope to put a lot more stamps in my passport in the coming year.

5. Career highlights?
Being on the cover of Darling Magazine. It was such a beautiful shoot and something I will cherish.

6. How did you get into modeling or acting?
It happened pretty accidentally. I just showed up to an LA based Casting for  size 14 models and ended up booking it. I had just signed up for LA Casting to be an extra and see movie stars. I never thought I would get here. 🙂

A small town called Kenora in Northwestern Ontario, Canada known for its lakes and fishing.

2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
The hobby I am most passionate about is Scuba diving. In the past year, I dove with hammerhead sharks in Galapagos, whale sharks in Mexico, and black tip sharks in the French Polynesia.  Most of the planet is underwater so I feel a desire to see as much as humanly possible. I also love riding motorcycles, Crossfit, and am even in a pool league.

3. Favorite clients from the biz?
I have worked some amazing clients around the world including designers from Italy, Spain, Germany, and the U.S.  Almost all clients I’ve worked with have been extremely professional and supportive, but a few that really stand out are Diesel, Energie, D&G, G-Star, Crooks & Castles, and Adaptation.

4. Dreams/goals, any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
One of my dreams is to help provide motivation and leadership to our youth in order to enable them become successful. I am currently a mentor in an amazing leadership program called LEAP (www.leapfoundation.com), which is held for 1 week every summer at UCLA. The program teaches kids aged 15-25 how to succeed in life through job interview skills, the importance of having mentors in your life, and maximizing your potential. I also strive to be a published author (in the self-help genre), provide a great life for my family, and dive with wild orcas in Norway. As for dream clients I would love to work with some of the athletic brands (Lululemon, Arc’teryx, Nike and Adidas). I wish GoPro would release an underwater clothing line!

5. Career highlights?

My career highlights include walking the runway for Squared, D&G, Diesel, and Moncler in Milan. I’ve also graced a few covers including World Class and Ocean Drive.

6. How did you get into modeling or acting?
I was scouted carrying groceries in a grocery store parking lot in Winnipeg, Canada.  From there I went to see agencies in Toronto, signed with an agency, and 2 weeks later I was on a plane to Milan, Italy.  My first job was for Giorgio Armani at Casa Armani in Milan.  I literally went straight from the Milan airport to Giorgio’s home with all of my luggage. Talk about CULTURE SHOCK.
