I began my career in modeling when I was just 10 years old. I worked for a collection of family brands such as Target through primary school until my first big break came... a Jay Jays campaign! The thrill that followed the campaign held onto me tightly. I made a decision that from that day forward, I would wholeheartedly commit to the modeling industry & see just how far I could go.

Determination, hard work, resilience & an amazingly, supportive network has since allowed me to build both a career and a business that I cherish. 

Over the years, I've worked with amazing designers, brands, photographers and many creative geniuses. I've travelled the world, launched my own fashion label and had the pleasure of meeting some of my absolute idols. To date, life has been a rollercoaster full of ups, downs and all that follows. 

More recently, my career has taken some big & exciting turns. I've explored ambassadorships, TV production, the property market & philanthropy.  Philanthropy, especially, has added even more fire to my belly! To raise awareness in the areas where it's desperatley needed & to give back as much as possible is now a daily ambition.

2018 and beyond is going to be a colourful whirlwind. I can't wait to get started!

Thank you to all of the people who are here reading this & who have supported me over the years. You mean the world to me!
