1. What's your Ethnicity?
German and Irish.
2. What's your astrological sign?
Sagittarius - the best sign in the zodiac. (laughs)
3. Where are you originally from?
4. What did you like most about growing up between the east and west coasts?
I got the best of both worlds! We moved to Southern California when I was in school so I grew up on the beach with the sunny California weather. But I was lucky enough to spend summers and Christmas holidays with my Grandparents and the rest of my family on the East coast which meant swimming in my Grandparents pond and playing in the forest and streams in the summer. Ice skating and playing in the snow in the winter.
5. What kind of mischief did you into while growing up?
Every kind! I was a little delinquent! The usual - mixing up horrible drink concoctions from my parents liquor cabinet. Sneaking out my window! Probably the worst is stealing my Mom's brand new car and joy riding with my sister when I was about 14 years old! Luckily I rarely got punished. Not sure if my Mom knows about these things to this day so - SHHH!
6. What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
When I was in Mexico last we were staying on a deserted beach. Low tide was at night , the tide would go out for about a mile. We were the only people staying on the beach. My boyfriend (at the time) and I would walk out about a mile til the water got deep & I couldn't stand. My Dog would be swimming along behind us. I always felt really safe since the water was crystal clear and I could see the bottom. Then I was told most Shark attacks happen in waist deep water. And Shark attacks are more likely to happen at night since the sharks can't see and confuse us for Seals! Especially my white Dog paddling along behind us!
Now that I think about it I've gone body surfing and swimming in over 10 different Oceans and Seas late at night!
7. What brought you to LA?
I started working regularly as a model and the drive was brutal with all the traffic!
8. What's your favorite hobby and why?
Drawing. I love the use of color. It's just another creative outlet.
9. What's your guilty pleasure?
Don't laugh - Posting up on the couch with a pint of Ben & Jerry's and catching up on my favorite cable shows on Demand!
10. Who do you admire?
Anyone who follows their dreams! I am inspired by positive, motivated people and love to surround myself with them!

To finish my "Model's Guidebook" by the end of the year.

15. What do you look for in a guy?
Someone who is honest, thoughtful and makes me laugh.
16. What's the first thing you notice about a guy?
Definately his lips. I have a thing for guys with great lips!

18. What turns you off?
