Elmer Olsen Model Management
Place of Origin:
Scottish and Romanian
I’m from a city just outside of Toronto and pigs would fly before you got scouted to be a model there haha. So one afternoon I went to Toronto with my mom to go see Elmer Olsen Models and signed with them that same day!
I love to cook, being on my own for a few months has taught me to be more creative than ever with my meals. I also love to hang out with friends and take my dog to the park when I’m home, and shopping….of course. I should probably add on that everyone who knows me is aware I have the biggest sweet tooth ever, I love sour candies and peanut m&m’s.
Favorite music, band:
love a little bit of everything, I guess it depends what kind of mood I’m in. I really like classic rock; I have posters of Pink Floyd and Zeppelin all over my room back home. I like rap, indie, and stuff I can dance to. At the moment I’ve been listening to a lot of ASAP, Rihanna, Calvin Harris, Dead and Divine, Bombay Bicycle Club, Unknown Mortal Orchestra.. and the list goes on. Basically if I’m out and about you will always see me with my headphones on!
Favorite movie, tv show:
Two of my favourite movies have always been Blow and Night at the Roxbury. Any movie with Will Ferrell makes me laugh. When it comes to TV I’m addicted to Dexter. I can’t wait for the last season to come out. It always leaves you in suspense.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I wasn’t modelling I would probably be looking for a job in the fashion industry because I went to college for Fashion Arts. I would also love to go back to school for culinary arts after I’m done with modelling.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Call of Duty. It has and always will be my favourite game to play when I’m home. My friends always make fun of me because I love video games.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
To be honest, every experience I’ve had lately has been so great it would be hard to pick a favourite! But I would say the moment I’ll remember forever was walking for my first international show as an exclusive with Alexander Wang. It was so incredible and different than anything I had ever experienced with modelling. He basically jump started my career because after I did the show the first call I got was from Elmer Olsen himself telling me clients were calling him asking “Who is this girl and where did she come from!??”
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
In the summertime I love going to the beach and to baseball games in Toronto. I’m not that much of a fan for the game (although I did play when I was younger) just being there drinking some beers and eating popcorn with my friends is a lot of fun.
Favorite artist (any kind):
Place you would love to visit:
All my life I’ve wanted to go to Rome. I would love to see all the architecture and historic ruins!
