Elmer Olsen Model Management
Place of Origin:
1/2 Irish 1/2 German
I walked into Elmer Olsen during their open call hours. They told me that I had great potential and that they would love to work with me, but that I needed to work on a few things. At that point I felt extremely focused and kept in touch with my progress. 5 weeks later I was in for digitals that ended up getting me the Prada show!
Nature, storms, expansive thinking/ideas, incomprehensible optimism, losing yourself in the moment, laughing until you cry.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I’d be making music with friends.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Awkward pauses. It’s not that I’m aloof, I’m simply at peace with the stillness.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
My first modelling gig was in Milan for Prada. My agency called me and said “pack your bags, you’re flying to Milan tomorrow!” I absolutely loved every minute of it! I had a big smile on my face the whole time except for when I was on the runway. Hopefully this is just the beginning.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The best thing about Oakville, Ontario is the big and beautiful Oak trees. Now that I don’t live in Oakville, the best thing about spending time there is being amongst friends and family.
Which brand would you really love to model for?
I’d really love to model for Topman. I love their style and I think it suits me well. I’d be honoured to work with them. I’m all about gaining experience so the more designers and photographers I get the opportunity to work with, the better!
Place you would love to visit:
I’d love to visit Paris, France. It seems like a very beautiful place to soak in the scenery, excite the senses with exquisite cuisine and enjoy a certain “joie de vivre” that much of Western society seems to have forgotten.
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Challenging myself to run faster and longer. Also, challenging myself to be bold and try new things. Overcoming fear and obstacles.
