Playboy.com: How did you get involved with Playboy.com?
My friend went to a casting call and they liked her. They had someone cancel on another shoot and they had her call me and I came in. I hadn’t even met anyone before I went to the audition.
Playboy.com: Had they seen your picture?
I sent them a couple pictures. I was just supposed to meet them, but we ended up shooting that day.
Playboy.com: What was the sexiest aspect of the photo shoot for you?
I really liked what I was wearing. For one part of it I was wearing this lingerie—blue bikini set—and I really loved it. I kind of want to buy it now.
Playboy.com: What’s on your nightstand?
A bunch of crap. Nail polish, sunglasses, water, just a bunch of crap.
Playboy.com: What’s the best lie you’ve ever told?
I don’t know if I’ve told any good ones. I’m not a very good liar.
Playboy.com: Name one TV show you’re embarrassed to admit you love?
Dancing with the Stars. I love that show.
Playboy.com: What is your best character trait?
I’m a really good listener, I’m very honest and I don’t lie.
Playboy.com: What is your biggest turnoff when it comes to guys?
If a guy can’t hold a conversation that’s a huge turnoff. I like interesting guys; I don’t want to have to be worried about what I’m going to say or what we’re going to do. I like them to kind of take charge when it comes to that.
Playboy.com: What turns you on in the opposite sex?
Physically, I love guys with toned abs. Otherwise I’d have to say I like guys that are gentlemen, but it’s okay if they’re a bit of an asshole.
Playboy.com: What is your perfect breakfast in bed?
It would have to be the works. Hot chocolate on white pancakes, toast, everything, and then a hot guy to serve it to me.
Playboy.com: Are you currently in school?
Yeah, I’m a full-time student. I’m taking a bunch of classes—I don’t have my major decided.
Playboy.com: What makes you feel sexiest?
I feel sexiest probably when I’m dancing. I’m a professional dancer, so that always makes me feel sexiest.
Playboy.com: What kind of dance do you specialize in?
Latin Ballroom and cha-cha.
Playboy.com: If you’re dancing with a guy, do you expect him to keep up with you?
No, not at all; he can just stand there and I can do my thing around him.
Playboy.com: Name one person, dead or alive, you’d love to go on a date with.
Kurt Cobain. I love Kurt Cobain; he’s hanging on my wall right now
Playboy.com: What is one of your greatest achievements?
Probably when I won a really big dance award when I was younger. I was first place in California in Latin Ballroom.
Playboy.com: Is dancing your main form of exercise?
I’m pretty lazy. I don’t like to work out, so dancing is pretty much the only way to get me to do physical activity.
Playboy.com: What do you do when you’re not modeling?
I think I’m into different things than most girls are. Most girls like to go shopping. I’m into that too, but I also love extreme sports. I love snowboarding and dirt biking, stuff like that.
Playboy.com: Give us some advice you think everyone should take.
Not to trust everyone around you. Not to go telling all your secrets, because you never know who’s going to say what. Keep things to yourself unless you really trust someone.
Playboy.com: What are your goals for the coming months?
I really want to finish school and start modeling more because this is my first photo shoot. I want to get out there and broaden my portfolio.
