Over the years I picked up many accolades but my favourites were being simultaneously the respective faces of tit tape and laughing gas, a feat that has never since been repeated. My popular blogs on Myspace lead to a column writing for FRONT magazine and I was later promoted to Games Editor, due to my obsessive interest in video games.
My FRONT column caught the attention of Loaded’s James Brown, who at the time had been brought on board to manage an obscure cable channel called Sumo TV. Having never done TV before, I was sent for a screen test that basically became a ten minute monologue about my friend Paul who suffered from a condition called “megarectum”, which meant that he couldn’t poo without laxatives and how he still had his Christmas dinner inside him at Easter. Impressed, James offered me my own TV show. While the resulting show ("In Bed With Sim-Wise") was chaotic and short-lived it produced my first showreel and lead to me being the first glamour model to move on from my model agency (GIRL Management) to TV talent agency Money Management. Stints hosting for MTVHD, BBC Radio 1, and G4TV in the US followed before I burned out and retired at the age of 30. "
