I was born in Bucks County, PA, but I basically live in NYC now. I’m a full-time actress and model and I’ve been doing it for two years now. I went to Penn State University and received a bachelor’s degree in Corporate Communication. I was featured in the 2011 GOSI Calendar (so much fun to shoot!!), and have worked with the photographer who shot it, William Kofron, a bunch since then as well. I started modeling during my junior year, and loved it. Now modeling and acting is all I do.
What do you think appeals to a women the most when listening to a song (voice, lyrics,and or instrumental) and why?
I think most women are mostly listening to the lyrics maybe….but I’d say all of it. If the song has a sick beat, I don’t care what they’re saying. If the lyrics are great, I’ll love it. And if they have a voice like Adam Levine or Pat Monahan or Tori Amos or Michele Karmin…sign me up : )
What type of music are you willing to spend your hard earned money on?
Anything I like. I listen to all kinds of different music. Anything from hip hop, to rock, to rap, to pop, to alternative, to soul, etc.
At this magazine we feel that women are the driving force behind most strong lyrics in music, and thus the reason why most trends in music are created? Do you agree and why?
I would say men and women both can write and create very strong and intense lyrics in music. Women tend to be more emotional and write more love songs though of course. But there are so many powerful lyrics written by men too!!
What music makes you move?
Aw man….anything!! Just turn it up!!
What do you feel you will have to do in modeling to make you feel you have made it?
I want to be on the cover of Maxim or FHM at some point….but then I want to be the first girl who is 5’3″ in Sports Illustrated haha. (I can dream right?!) Once I land a lead role in a huge film, I’ll have felt I “made it” but it will only make me more motivated to keep doing it.
If you made it to your dreams what would you do to give back to other models?
I want to have my own magazine and clothing line, possibly swimwear line. And I’d definitely use models who weren’t typical models. I’d choose unique and different girls to model for the line.
What makes a women beautiful?
It could be her sense of humor. It could be her smile. It could be the vibe she gives off. It could be her general demeanor. It could be anything. There’s something beautiful about every single person.
What are your best qualities?
I think my best qualities are my sense of humor, my motivation, and my ability to smile in almost any situation.
