 What was growing up like for you? 

Wild and Stressful.

 Do you see yourself as Model?

 It pays my bills, allows me not to have a day job and I have a manager so I guess I am some kind of model? I just say I'm a part time something... I feel silly saying I am a model out loud. I'm just some chick with tattoos who got lucky opportunities.

 When did you become involved in modelling and what do you love about it?

 Erm the first shoot I ever did was 2008 for Inked NY for 'My First Ink' after that taster I decided to pester magazines into shooting me :) I love it because I get to pretend I'm cute or sexy when in real life I'm just goofy and scruffy.

 What would you like to do more in the future? 

 Wear More clothes and travel way more.

What do you admire in other women? 

Morals and Independence. 

 Who is El Wood? 

A Mystery, an enigma hahaa

 Where to you draw inspiration from? 

Everything I walk past

 Do you prefer behind the lens or in front? 

In front.

 How would you describe your style?

 A lovely Mess.

 Are you a fashion brands girl or do you just wear what you like or whats comfortable? 

Whats comfortable, I try and find a balance between comfy and cute no particular brands.

 Who would you say is your style icon? 

No one really I go through phases of liking different people. I like the whole 90s grunge look but then I also get inspired by looks from the 30s,50s, 70s.

 Tales of love & lust? 

Oh my! :) I do not do things in halves! When I love, I am hopelessly and utterly in love...its a roller coaster.... and lust is wonderful too but more problematic ;)

 What do you look for in the opposite sex? 

And what are the number 1 deal breakers? Someone who can make me laugh and make me feel safe. Deal breakers are Someone who has no manners... manners are so important to me and who is constantly negative.

 What is it that you love most about being a woman? 

I don't know how to answer this... I behave a bit boyish sometimes... I have always felt more comfortable around men... hmmm I love dressing up!!!

 When no one is around what is El usually doing? 

Pondering life, eating everything i shouldn't, watching movies, wishing i was somewhere in the sun by the water, dancing (i know other people do that too).

 Is there a public and private El? 

Yeah for sure, behind closed doors I'm super affectionate and actually a lot more relaxed, I am pretty socially retarded

 What's your take on life and what advice would give any of your fans?

Work Hard always stay humble, Laugh at all the wrong times, Do not waste time, do not settle for anything less than you deserve and don't waste loving anyone who treats you like you are ordinary
