What do you do? Currently I am working in the financial sector, not ideal but it’s great experience. I want to study media design and advertising next year, it’s one of my passions.

Interests or hobbies? I am interested in everything, but more specifically: music, design and drawing, movies, I’m a PlayStation and XBox junkie and the environment is also a definite interest. I’m not a tree hugger, though. I could easily spend a good portion if not my whole salary on DVDs, CDs and console games. I love to dance the night away and party until the early hours! Hockey is my favourite sport to play besides kicking a soccer ball around when the occasion calls for it. Soccer and rugby are hands-down the best sports to watch with good friends and a few drinks!

What’s your biggest turn-on? Smell! The smell of his cologne when a guy walks past will always turn my head. The smell of his hair after he showers, even just “his” smell after a day at the beach.

Why should guys vote for you? That’s quite a loaded question... and I guess simply put, if you like what you see, why shouldn’t you vote for me? I’d also like to think that I’m not the regular cliché that’s seen daily, but that’s up to you to decide.

Your most embarrassing moment? I’m blushing just remembering it. I went for a casting for a television advert. The run-down was that we had to look as elegant as possible while underwater. Our “costumes” were a piece of material wrapped around the necessary areas. My turn came to swim like a mermaid and when I went up for air, the camera was still rolling, the top portion of my “costume” shifted to the side and exposed more than I had realised. I found out just how much when everyone reviewed the shoot. A group of 30 or so strangers, men and women, got a good look at my exposed upper body! BLIND!

The sexiest thing you’ve ever done? First let me start by telling you that I went to a Catholic school, so when my boyfriend at the time informed me that he had a fantasy about the schoolgirl outfit, how could I resist? I surprised him one evening by showing up at his house in my uniform with a naughty smile on my face.

What’s your idea of a great night out? Where do you go to party? A good night out starts off with delicious food and awesome company. It becomes a great night after a teapot or two and hitting the town. Cedar Square for the social scene and fantastic vibe and The Manhattan Club to get my body moving! Like I have said, I love to dance and any chance I get, I take it!

Your proudest moment? There are two actually! The day I drove my first car off the showroom floor knowing I paid for it and when I stepped on the aeroplane set for America knowing I had organised and paid for everything by myself were my ultimate highs! There is no greater moment than realising your independence.

Words to live by/ What’s your life philosophy? “People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.” – Andrew Carnegie. Work hard but have fun doing it.
