How did you first become interested in modelling and acting?

I was around 16 years old when I first started modelling, and when I moved to NYC at 21, I fell in love with the arts, with acting and movement, with music, expression and fashion.

What do you enjoy most about what you do?

The creative process, being able to transform. Expression and passion, working with like minded people. Creativity!!!

At the moment I’m living in Byron Bay, raising my daughter and working on projects between here and LA.

Could you describe your personal style?

My personal style is fairly laid back, I’m a fan of ripped jeans, band shirts, sneakers. Depends on my mood and time of day! I’ve got a mean shoe collection and love my leather !!

My mind is healthy, happy, and free…

What music are you listening to at the moment?

I listen to a wide array of sounds! I’m loving the kills new album – Ash and Ice, and I just got back from Dessert Trip in Palm Springs where I saw the Rolling Stones, Paul Mcartney, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and the Who! That was fun!!

What is the purpose of art, in your view?

To evoke emotion, encourage thought, visually / sonically intrigue. Shake up the status quo.

How do you spend your free time?

If I have free time I spend it on the beach in Byron Bay, it’s magical!
