Little about you?

I was born in Atlanta Georgia , Marietta in 1988 , I’m 27 years old , I have dual citizenship because my parents are Irish. I’m living in Ireland for 20yrs now, I’m also a qualified Nurse. I went to Queens University in Belfast and Graduated in 2008.. I’ve had many jobs over the years but by far I love modeling.

How did you start modelling?

I actually just kinda fell into modeling. I did a shoot for Pins ‘N’ Needles piercing and tattoo parlor just because I wanted a corset piercing and after that I got noticed by photographers on Facebook and was contacted by them. It was very surreal feeling but also very exciting.

What do you believe is the key to success for a model?

I think the key to success is to never let anyone tell you can’t do something ..and give it your all. Never do something half hearten and having the drive to see it through.

What is your dream modelling job?

My dream modeling job would be to be the cover girl for Bizarre and GQ Magazine and to be the face for a petite ladies lingerie line.

What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done?

I’ve done three really standout shoots in my 3years of modeling and my first was a shoot I did with Carl Farmer at Redtree studios. It was a horror shoot. My second favorite has to be my steampunk shoot with David Stanway. He’s an absolutely brilliant photographer and my last one is a full nude shoot for Andrew Lightrunner for his book of nude art which is out this year. A very fun guy to work with.

What do you find the most challenging part about working in the fashion industry?

What I find most challenging in the fashion industry is having body confidence and showing that confidence. I’m working on getting some sets published this year for the Suicide Girls and hoping to get into music videos and TV.

Style icon?

It has to be Cara Delavigne.
