Hey creatives! :-)
I'm a professional international model and underwater archaeologist.
Born in Seville, Spain, but raised in Lisbon, Portugal, to an English/Scottish mother and Egyptian/Spanish father. So I speak lots of languages, and love adventure and exploring the world!
Agency-represented model, very experienced in High Fashion, Runway, Commercial, Beauty and Underwater Modelling. Worked internationally for many years in London, Paris, NYC, LA, Chile, Iceland, Dubai, Spain, Lisbon, Cyprus.
Major accomplishments include publications in Vogue UK and Italia, winner of V&A Museum’s Horst competition, London Fashion Week runways, billboard campaigns and magazine covers, modelling underwater and in Icelandic ice caves. As an ambassador for ethical fashion, my work has actively supported and represented anti-human trafficking campaigns, such as the Freedom Campaign with A21 and for Fashioned for Freedom, where I was selected to close the show modelling Vivienne Westwood. I have been appointed ‘Features Editor and Industry Expert’ for Fashion Shift Magazine, worked as a producer/coordinator for large-scale shoots, and published interviews/articles.
I am very driven, enthusiastic and professional in my work; I always give it my all!
*Note: I don't do nude/implied, glamour or lingerie*
