What made you want to get into surfing?
My Dad was an Australian surf champion and growing up in Australia meant I was always around surfing. I really got into surfing when I live in Maui for two years, how could you not surf there?

A Bikini A Day is my dream come true. It’s a place for my best friend/business partner, Devin and I to share our favorite bikinis and experiences. We never imagined that ABAD would inspired women all over the world to be confident about their bikini body, but it has and we are so grateful for that.
What are your summer plans?
Lots of traveling and shooting for A BIKINI A DAY! We book our trips at the last minute, which is the way I like it! Spontaneity is key to fun and exciting life!

What are your favorite bikini brands and tell us more about your own brand?
Some of my all time favorites are VIX Swimwear, Mikoh Swimwear, Tigerlily and Mara Hoffman. I did just create my own line, Monday Swimwear, which is definitely my favorite right now because Devin and I have created the most comfortable suits in the world. When you are comfortable, you are confident and their is nothing more beautiful than a girl who is confident in her bikini.
