My name is Nicole Ferreira, and I'm a published Playboy Special Editions, Fitness, Pin Up and Glamour Model. I have been published over 100 times in both newsstand and independently owned magazines, including 14 covers. I've been lucky enough to have appeared in 4 separate Playboy magazines, including Playboy's Vixens (two separate editions), Playboy's Sexy Girls Next Door and Playboy's Hot Shots. I've also been published in numerous newsstand fitness and glamour magazines, including Planet Muscle, Physique Magazine, Musclemag, American Curves and more. In addition to modeling, I also have my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and my Master's Degree in Social Work. I got started in modeling in 2002 at the National Fitness and Bikini America Pageants. I was standing in line at registration and I was asked by American Curves magazine to do a test shoot. That first shoot was my first 8 page layout in a newsstand magazine. I got hooked In 2005 I had enough courage to attend a Playboy casting call in New York City, and I was selected to shoot for Playboy Special Editions. Shooting with Playboy, to this day, is my personal favorite and best modeling accomplishment.
