I started modeling by getting approached by a photographer in Toronto, Canada. I went in for a test shoot and shortly after I ended up bikini modeling for calendars and catalogs in Toronto. It was all local stuff. I broke out of the local market once I landed a cover of a calendar that sold throughout Canada. That kind of exposure has made me want to pursue more and that’s exactly what I did.
What excites you about modeling?
I love every aspect of modeling from traveling around the world, seeing new places, meeting amazing people and getting dolled up and being made beautiful. I love going to work knowing that I’ll get to look a certain way and wear certain clothing. Playing dress up is a lot of fun!
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
I love it all. However, lately I’ve really been into latex. I feel very sexy yet dominating in latex. It’s very much a turn on for me.
What are your least favorites?
My least favorite outfit to model in would be anything that covers up my body too much. When I model, I want to feel sexy and to me showing skin is sexy!
How did you get involved with Penthouse?
In 2008 I came in for a test shoot. After that I landed the cover of May 2008 Penthouse magazine, followed by video work for Penthouse. In 2010 Penthouse made me April 2010 Pet of The Month. I was then in the running for 2011 Pet of The Year. I was pleasantly surprised when I was crowned as the 2011 Pet of The Year. It has been an incredible experience for me. It brought me a lot of mainstream attention, new fans and new opportunities to travel the world as Penthouse model and Pet of The Year.
What kind of shoots would you like to work on in the future?
In the future I would love to shoot in more exotic locations and perhaps even all over Europe. I love to travel so if I get the opportunity to travel to a new country and shoot, I’ll be all over that!
Are there any other creative mediums you work in?
I act. I feature dance. I host parties and make appearances. I work in mainstream. I tape for a show called Cubed which is on FoxSports.com and FUEL TV. I feature dance all over U.S. I’ve made feature dance appearance in Europe and Canada. I consider myself an entertainer because I am involved in so many different aspects of creative mediums.
What kind of music do you like?
I love hip hop, pop, metal and rock. In my car I tend to play a lot of hip hop. When I’m feature dancing, I change it up form hip hop to pop to rock.
What do you like to do for fun?
For fun I like to go to an amusement park or have dinner with my friends. It all depends on my mood. I tend to have fun no matter what I do! However, since I travel so much I don’t get to see my friends very often. A nice evening consisting of dinner with my friends and then perhaps a club or a lounge is fun to me!
