Early life and education
Emma spent most of her childhood in the small town of Hartford, Connecticut, alongside her older sister, Bella.
Emily grew up in a working-class family; her mother works as a nurse, while her father is a construction worker. Despite her modest background, Emma grew up with a love for fashion and beauty, and often experimented with her style from a young age. Her family was supportive of her interests, and encouraged her to pursue her passions.
Emma attended a local public high school where she was involved in various extracurricular activities. Although she was an excellent student, after matriculating high school she didn’t enroll at a college, and instead chose to focus on her modeling career.
Rise to fame
Emma’s journey to becoming a social media influencer began in 2016, when she launched her Instagram account. About a year later, she started uploading professionally-taken photos in lingerie and swimwear. Her good looks were quickly noticed, and Emma’s popularity continued to grow rapidly.
As a result, Emma started receiving modeling offers from a number of clothing brands. Through the years, she’s collaborated with brands such as Calvin Klein, Yandy, and Eats Lingerie, among others. Furthermore, she serves as the brand ambassador for ANDI BAGUS swimwear.
In 2022, Emma officially became a Playboy Bunny, and has since appeared in several of their campaigns, becoming one of the featured models in their “Playboy Centerfold” online magazine.
In addition to posting her modeling shoots online, Emma uses her platform to connect with her fans and talk about issues that matter to her. On Instagram, she frequently shares mental health advice from professionals, and encourages her followers to practice compassion and self-affirmation.
Parallel to her successful modeling career, Emma has been exploring other fields as well. In 2021, she began taking acting classes and soon started going to auditions. She made her acting debut in the short drama “Astor & Kiko”, directed by George Oliver, and has since landed supporting roles in two more short films, “Guilty Pleasure” and “Ah-Ma Burns”, both of which are set to premiere in 2023.
However, her biggest role to date is in the upcoming HBO comedy series “How to Be a Bookie“, created by Chuck Lorre, and which stars Sebastian Maniscalco and Omar Dorsey. The show will center on the experiences of a seasoned bookmaker, as he faces challenges to stay afloat amidst the legalization of sports betting, all while managing his clientele and personal affairs.
The series was announced by the network on 4 October 2022, with production starting in November – so far, Emily has shared several photos and videos from the set on her Instagram and TikTok accounts, but not a lot is known about her role yet. This is her most high-profile project to date, and Emily is hopeful that it can open the door for her to some more exciting film and TV roles.
Social media presence
Emma’s looks and magnetic personality have helped grow her following across multiple platforms. As of April 2023, she has over 1.3 million followers on Instagram, while her photos amass tens of thousands of likes.

In November 2018, she launched her self-titled YouTube channel, onto which she uploaded several vlogs and fashion videos. However, she didn’t manage to find an audience on the popular video-sharing platform, and so has stopped making videos.
Emma also used to stream her playthroughs of popular video games such as “Sims 4”, “Minecraft”, and “Call of Duty” on Twitch. She was most active during the Covid-19 lockdown, but has since stopped streaming to pursue other ventures.
Furthermore, Emma is active on OnlyFans, where she shares her more explicit content and chats with her subscribers.

Brandon is a model, photographer, and musician known under the alias Georgeous Prince Georges. Emma has revealed that they met on Instagram, and that Brandon reached out to her first.
