Where are you from and how did you start modeling?

I'm from the suburbs outside of New York City, and I started modeling after I met Lisa Phillips, my mother agent. I first went to Miami while I was still in school.

What is your dream modeling job? 

A Calvin Klein campaign/the cover of Sports Illustrated.

What has been your favorite modeling job so far? 

My favorite was when I shot Ralph Lauren's wedding collection in the Florida Keys. It was so beautiful!

Any plans for the rest of the summer? 

I plan to spend some weekends at the beach visiting with my family. I'm also going to Peru next week for a booking, which I'm looking forward to.

Describe your perfect summer day. 

My perfect summer day would consist of sleeping in, having breakfast on my porch, and walking down the beach.

What is your current favorite song? 

Somewhere Over The Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

Any summertime movies you could recommend? 

Blue Crush and Lords of Dogtown! They make me want to go live on a shack by the beach.

Top 5 things you can't live without in the summertime would be: 

The beach, cut-off shorts, friends, lemons, and ice cold anything.
