Born in Brisbane, Australia, Ellie spent her childhood climbing trees, playing sports, riding horses.

 

A young, outgoing tomboy, Ellie dreamed of becoming an actress as she had a natural charismatic ability to perform in front of people. As a result of this, before her 14th birthday, she was enrolled for some extra corricular activities including singing, dancing, acting and modelling.

 

This ultimately lead to her to the occasional modelling job on the weekends between school. All through her teenage years, she found herself modeling on holidays and weekends. Ellie landed the lead role of Sandy in a ‘Grease Is The Word’ production in 2008 and also continued to work while attending the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA).

 

She kept a busy schedule taking acting classes until she graduated in the year 2008 and with her new skill set intact, she started to model full-time while pursuing opportunities in film and television.

 

Before Ellies move to America, she had been on the cover of Maxim Magazine three times, worked with Australian labels such as Lorna Jane, Bras N Things, Jetpilot and Price Attack. She also starred in a coconut water commercial, hosted a popular TV show named JETPACK Nation and also designed her own limited-edition swimwear collection, which gained international acclaim.

 

Ellie relocated to Los Angeles late 2015. Since then, she has become the face of both the GUESS Jeans Lingerie & Accessories Fall Campaigns for 2016. She has been featured in Flaunt Magazine for Guess shot by Yu Tsai, worked with labels such as Fredericks of Hollywood and has been on the cover of Treats! Magazine. Ellie has also starred in an international television commercial for Toshiba and most recently filmed a Yellowtail Wines Super Bowl commercial in Barcelona set to air February 5th 2017.

 

After Ellies move to LA in 2015, she landed her first American movie role which filmed in Boston, Massachusetts set to be released mid 2017 in movie theatres around the US.

 

Ellie is also a passionate animal rights supporter and is honored to be the global ambassador for the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors charity alongside names like Bindi Irwin and Justin Timberlake. Ellie has built an incredible following and loyal fan base through her social media channels. With a total reach of 5 million + people, she is able to interact with her fans on a daily basis and engage with people who identify with her likes and lifestyle.
