To tell you a little about myself, I began modeling at the age of 9 in my hometown of Chicago and soon after started acting. I landed my first national commercial at the age of 11 for Betty Crocker which ultimately gave me the ‘camera bug’. I continued acting/modeling throughout elementary school and part of high school, when I wasn’t competing in Gymnastics, Ice-skating or Diving. To keep my cravings of working in front of the camera alive, I began anchoring for my high school’s News Station during the school year, thus beginning my hosting career.
After putting my camera fix on hold for a few years, I attended Miami University in Oxford, OH to focus on academics. Still not able to put my arts aside (and attending dance lessons since the age of 7) I decided to join the Dance Theatre Company as a way to fulfill my ‘performance’ thirst. My freshman year at MU, I was on the swimming and diving team as a springboard diver before I retired due to a neck injury. After my 6 month recovery through surgery and physical therapy, I was able to continue my love for dance and performing with the Dance Theatre Company/DT Repertory Group.
Once receiving my degree in Psychology I moved back to Chicago to pursue acting full-time. After booking commercials and a small role in the The Break Up starring Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston, I decided it was time to give Los Angeles a run for its money. Within the first year of moving to LA, I auditioned for a new project called "Style Scene" for the Style Network (a branch of NBC Universal) and soon after became their host. Since then, I have co-starred in CBS’s The Unit and How I Met Your Mother, CW’s The Game, ABC’s Desperate Housewives and Revenge, hosted for numerous companies such as Break Media, Vlaze.com, GoTV (now known as Phunware), hosted Team USA’s Road to London: 2012 in conjunction with NBC Universal Sports, hosted for E! News Now (E! Entertainment), and am currently co-anchoring "Court Report" for The Tennis Channel, as well as been the NBC4 Los Angeles Station Host since 2009, just to name a few. In addition to hosting, I have booked supporting roles in feature films. Aside from this, I've been the spokesperson for numerous companies including being the 2008-2009 Bally Total Fitness Spanish Spokesperson, the 2010-2011 spokesperson for Cricket Wireless (English & Spanish), and the 2011-2012 MGD 64caster for Miller Genuine Draft. I also completed my first nationwide (English & Spanish) infomercial for the fabulous rotating InStyler which you may catch from time to time!!
