I participated in Miss CHIN Bikini International Saturday June 30 at the CNE Bandshell during the CHIN Picnic festivities.
This year’s winner was Casandra Bella. She is super sweet & fabulous! Anastasia Shvets #17 placed second, and third place was Annie Pietroniro. The show is produced and staged by Serena Schwab of Knew-Age Solutions. Choreography by FAYEZ 1 Productions. Faye Rauw is a gem!!
Contest preparations saw us participating in the Chin Picnic Media Launch, exploring the sights and sounds at ‘Taste of Little Italy’ Toronto Event; Contestants made an appearance on CHIN TV live, Breakfast Television Toronto. You can check out our segment on Breakfast Television at the 43:00 mark. Click Here.
I met so many amazing ladies during the CHIN Picnic preparations. We shared a lot of love, laughs & fitness tips. Contestants were also treated to a fabulous prize pack featuring nutrition supplements & tanning supplies. The pageant theme was ‘Hollywood’; We definitely brought the sizzle to CNE grounds. It’s all glamour & fashion on the stage of the Miss CHIN Bikini Pageant.
Mr. CHIN International took place Sunday at the CNE.
Check out some shots collected from the 2012 Miss CHIN Bikini International pageant:
Recently I teamed up with Nathan Mann to create a series of interesting and creative summer shots. This shoot was extra fun because we decided to replicate a ‘Rihanna’ pose with famed photographer Terry Richardson. Can you spot which one?
Here is an unedited preview of a recent shoot I did with Evens Belleus. He’s got a perfect studio set-up located near Toronto’s studio district. Love it when friends are doing it big. For contact info + rates check him @Brohawk00 on Twitter. So excited for the final edits :]
We had fun shooting. Obvs!
I have a huge laugh attack.
Love to capture life’s moments. ❤

Luminato is Toronto’s fifth season when the Festival stages the best of Toronto Arts, inviting the world to celebrate and
transform it with them. Luminato is an annual multi-disciplinary celebration of theatre, dance, music, literature, food,
visual arts, film, magic, and more. For more information, please visit luminato.com.
Luminato 6 Kicked off with the Yves St Laurent Opening Night party. I had the honor of hosting the interactive ipad activation where your ipad drawing was projected onto the wall of the party for all to see. All night long we were creating amazing designs on the wall; storytelling, inspiring, – Some people were shy to draw so I drew a lot. I was drawing doodles at request, advertising YSL L’homme libre & Opium samples on hand for party guests. I also doodled to tell partygoers about ‘party perks’ like the cosmetic station for a complimentary make-up session. The energy at Opening night was incred. Great food, great smells, great people!
We looked great. 🙂
Luminato delivered an awesome creative Line up. See Here. Music, plays, screenings, shows, visuals: a lot to see and do at Luminato 6. Luminato, Toronto’s Festival of Arts and Creativity, was born out of the cultural and creative energy of the city of Toronto. A bit of background: On June 1, 2007, the first Luminato event was launched with Pulse Front: Relational Architecture 12, a light installation commissioned from Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. Festival supporters gathered along the harbourfront to witness the city skyline illuminated by the heart beats of the audience. Over four years in the making, Luminato was ready to be unveiled to Toronto and the world.
Luminato has become one of the preeminent arts festivals in North America, having commissioned over 50 new works of art, and featured 6,500 artists from 35+ countries. Here are some of my photos from the event. Here are some of my favorite memories. The concert photo is from when Rufus Wainwright took the stage.
L’Oreal made hundreds of ladies and gentlemen happy by offering an exclusive give-away for anyone who ‘Likes’ L’Oreal Paris Canada on Facebook. Follow their exclusive coverage of the Luminato Festival, including daily beauty tips by experts Eddie Malter and Eric Del Monaco. All day long ladies were treated to complimentary beauty sessions from L’Oreal Paris’ lead Canadian stylists & makeup artists. Ladies were also treated to a gift card to online shopping empire Well.ca, where they could pick from the Summer’s hottest trends in Lipstick & Nail polish. This is every lady’s dream!!

I would love to take a moment to give a very big shout out to STRUTT Central, Christine & team are incredible! If you are interested in promotional modeling please visit STRUTT Central.
Cheryl @ STRUTT Central rang me suggesting I audition for a role. This one called for a ‘sexy blonde’. The audition consisted of sitting in a dentist chair.Easy enough! 🙂
After getting a call back I was delighted to be working with Philip Rostron & team to create a total masterpiece which would be splashed onto the pages of The Grid TO in preparation for the World Wide Short Film Festival June 5-10. The Grid is a weekly city magazine and daily website providing “a fresh, accessible voice for Toronto,”.
The idea was to create a series of cheeky ads to promote the upcoming World Wide Short Film Fest. The CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival (WSFF) is the premier venue for the exhibition and promotion of short film in North America. Taking place in early June, the WSFF is dedicated to celebrating the quality and creative range of short films. With annual submissions that surpass 4000, expert programmers specially select 250 shorts from more than 80 countries for five days of public screenings.
Donning a custom tailored medical jacket with sky high heels, I had a blast on set. Philip is a totally awesome director/photographer. Hilarity ensued as we practiced different styles & looks. The finished product looks pretty awes…
