Hey creatives! :-)

I live a bit of a double life, being both a professional international model and an underwater archaeologist! I was born in Seville, Spain and raised on the seaside in Lisbon, Portugal by my English/Scottish mother and Egyptian/Spanish father - and I can speak 6 languages. I grew up immersed underwater and seeking adventure, which eventually awoke my curiosity in exploring the world, ancient and modern.

Agency-represented model, with 8+ years of international experience working in London, Paris, NYC, LA, Dubai, Chile, Iceland, Cyprus, Spain, Lisbon. Extremely experienced in High Fashion, Runway, Editorial and Commercial modelling. Major accomplishments include publications in Vogue UK and Italia, winner of V&A Museum’s Horst competition, regular London Fashion Week runways, billboard campaigns and magazine covers, modelling underwater and in Icelandic ice caves.

As ambassador for ethical fashion, my work has actively supported and represented anti-human trafficking campaigns, such as the Freedom Campaign with A21, & Fashioned for Freedom, where I was selected to close the show modelling Vivienne Westwood.

I am also the appointed 'Features Editor & Industry Expert' and creative writer for Fashion Shift Magazine, and have worked as a production manager and coordinator for large-scale campaigns, and published numerous interviews and 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*
