1. How did you get into modeling?

Actually mostly by chance! I do photography myself too, I was one one of the photographers at a styled wedding shoot and I was asked to step in and by a groom for some shoots. One of the pictures ended up being in A wedding magazine in the UK and things have just progressed quickly from there! My management team had put a lot of effort into me to make sure my portfolio is up together, I’m very thankful for the work they have done with me and also their friendship.

2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?

That’s a tough question, how much space will you have to write!? I’ll try to keep it short as I have lots of interests, I still get excited when I’m introduced to new things. I play sports quite a bit, mostly football and also go to the gym as it’s a good way to relieve stress. I love to read, I can completely switch my mind off when I’m reading. Photography! It’s how I got into modelling and I love that I’ve got experience on both sides of the camera, getting into modelling has given me some great new friends and I’m often out shooting with a friend called Tyler

3. Whats your most embarrassing moment?

Ha this is a tough one! The first underwear shoot I did, I’d started to get turned on due to the others involved in the shoot! that was pretty embarrassing and felt very unprofessional at the time! I mean I’ve learned to control that a lot better but it was my first time in that kinda of situation and well, I’m only human!

4. What do you love on Social Media? – What do you hate on Social Media?

The support and encouragement I get from followers is wonderful, it gives me a real sense of pride of what I’m doing, I want to use it to give back too and encourage others to work hard to get to where they want to be. Everyone deserves people in their life that do that, unfortunately not everyone has it.

Worst side of it? It’s addictive, I should have mentioned this earlier when asked how I spend my spare time! I do a lot of work on my social media, trying to keep up with followers etc it’s a lot of effort but 100% worth it

5. Describe your personal style?!

I’d say my personal style is a bit of everything chucked in together! Growing up there was always stereotypes of things like goth, emo, chavs blah blah blah. I had friends that would class themselves in each of those but often the groups wouldn’t mix together. So my style I think has evolved from that and just combined my favourite bits from the elements together.

6. Favorite part of your body?!

Is probably say my hair is my favourite body part, does that count? It’s weird because I used to hate my hair, when I was younger I was platinum blonde!

7. Where are your roots?

Definitely Portsmouth in the UK, I moved there after my mum and did split up when I was young, so although technically not where I was born, that’s where I was raised and became the person I am today. My mum had a lot of determination and drive to ensure our family could go somewhere and whilst we didn’t have the easiest start in life it’s shaped me into who I am. Portsmouth will always hold a special place for me

8. Name one celebrity youd like to get naughty with!

Anna Kendrick but I’m going to be naughty now and pick another, if Channing Tatum offered I’m not saying no!

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I’ve always been told I’m a good dancer, and I used to be part of a male contemporary dance group when I was younger! You’ll always catch me at home after a shower with the music up dancing in front of a mirror!

10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?

Woah where to start! Internet is huge! Most interesting thing for me online at the moment is fashion blogs and lifestyle blogs, I find it really interesting reading them and finding out where people take their inspirations from. I’m not one of those people that can look at a piece of art and understand it, but if I know the base concept I can start connecting the dots and see the details that have been thought of and where they come from, I do this when I’m reading the blogs!
