Tell us about your beginnings, where were you born?

I was born in the UK.

How did you get into modelling?

I was scouted while on the tube.

What do you get up to outside of modelling?

When I’m not modelling I do landscape gardening for my family’s business – it’s something I’ve done since I was a child. In addition to this, I got into dog walking about a year ago when I was working with the Dogs Trust charity and now have my own business called Walkies. In terms of nightlife, I don’t go out much but when I do I prefer to stay east (London) in Dalston and Shoreditch as both are on my doorstep.

Who are you eager to work with?

I would love to work for Givenchy, I think it’s an insane incredible brand!

What beauty regime do you swear by?

I swear by Clinique men’s skincare products, they really do the trick.

Who do you idolise?

Tyson Beckford.


What do you enjoy most about modelling?

The buzz I get on set… and the free clothing, of course!

What advice would you give to anyone who dreams of becoming a model?

I would advise other models them to always be ready for something new and never compare themselves to anyone else, if anything, be inspired.

What is the highlight in your modelling career to date?

Being featured in British Vogue was a definite highlight.


Do you have any amusing modelling tales you can share with us?

Once, I was sent to the wrong casting which turned out to be a dance audition. I was asked to dance and sing along to the music in my underpants. I was so embarrassed!

Finally, what trends from 2016 do you love or hate at the moment?

I hate oversized, baggy clothes that look like they are too big for you.
