Loving life as much as I do has made me want to try everything. I suppose you can say I’m a jack of many trades, yet master of none! (YET!) I started out as a hairstylist in Long Island, New York, focusing on making brides beautiful on their special day. However, doing just one thing was never enough for me! I was in a band for several years and we played all over Long Island and NYC. We are not together anymore but I still sing and write songs on my guitar…so much fun!
I work out at the gym as often as I can because I’m so addicted to those endorphins, lol! That’s how I got into fitness modeling. I entered myself in Bikini Universe in Miami 2006 and although I didn’t place, it jump started a modeling career. I started doing commercials (such as Sprint, Mass State lottery, AOL, Dentyne Fire and New York Sports Club) and acting as well.
I wasn’t always so lucky to have all the opportunities that I have now. Actually my childhood years were quite difficult. I struggled with a serious episode of depression as a result of a dysfunctional home life. I’m very open about talking about it because we all have a story and that’s what makes us who we are.
I just wrote my very first screenplay called “Alive Inside” based on the story of my past and how all that didn’t kill me made me stronger
. My next mission is to turn it into a feature film! Any one out there know a production team? Just kidding!
So as for the rest of my life, who knows, but two things are for sure..I want to do my part in making the world a better place and of course, model on some romantic book covers, haha!
