How did you get started in the industry? I entered Pulse’s Caribbean Model Search in the summer of 2005 and the rest as they say is history! What’s your favourite ‘off the beaten path’ hangout in Jamaica? I actually haven’t gotten a chance to explore any ‘off the beaten path’ hangout spots since I’ve been back, but I really like the new restaurant/bar Cru. What’s been your most memorable weekend? I was in Barbados for a shoot and flew to Africa with my boyfriend on a whim. Any weekend I spend with my boyfriend and my family is memorable though. What has been your most interesting modeling job? My Edun campaign was definitely my most memorable job. I got to shoot with a real life elephant! We only had a short time with him and he was misbehaving a little, so that was pretty fun.
