How discovered:
I’ve always loved musical theatre but when an agent from Elmer Olsen Model Management in Toronto approached me on the street asking if I was interested in being a model, I realized the two were very similar and that this was definitely something I would love to pursue. I am always sooo thankful for that day, this has been an incredible experience so far!

Favorite things:
My guitar, my family and travelling the world.

Favorite music, band:
I love old school music like TLC and MC Hammer! I’ve always also admired Michael Jackson as an incredible performer and artist.

Favorite movie, tv show:
One of my favourite tv shows is Arrested Development, but I truly don’t watch much tv at all.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I feel as though modeling has come to me so naturally, but if I wasn’t modeling, I would love to pursue a career in music and singing. Writing music is such a passion of mine, and to have the opportunity to do that every day and eventually perform for people would be a dream come true! I currently am working on a demo of original songs right now during my spare time and have truly enjoyed having that as an amazing outlet for my creativity.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
School work! I honestly love school. Math is my favourite subject. Although it’s embarrassing to admit it, doing school work is fun for me!

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I would have to say that my favourite and definitely most memorable modelling experience so far would have to be walking for Calvin Klein. It has always been a dream of mine to walk in such a prestigious show, and for my first season in New York, to have the opportunity to be in the show was definitely my favourite experience so far.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I absolutely love Toronto and Canada despite the cold. I wouldn’t want to be from anywhere else. I love the small town feel of Toronto because even though it’s a big city, you always have a smiling face greeting you wherever you go!

Favorite artist (any kind):
My favourite photographer is Steven Meisel. My biggest dream is to be on the cover of Italian Vogue, and it would be such an honour to work with such a renown photographer.

Place you would love to visit:
California! I would eventually love to live there.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Right now I’m obsessed with my new Maltese puppy Benji, who I just got at Christmas! He’s adorable!
