I was born in Monterey Bay and grew up in a small town called Salinas in Northern California. My father, whom I am very close to, raised me. My goal initially was to be a singer. I was the class clown growing up and always entertaining my friends and family, as well as getting in trouble at school for talking too much. As I got older, I realized I didn’t have a good enough voice to make it in the music industry, but I did have a entertaining personality and other hidden gifts that I wasn’t aware of at the time. I moved to San Diego when I turned eighteen and took a huge risk not having a job or friends there to help me out. So I decided to go to cosmetology school and soon after started working in a high-end salon as a hairdresser. One day, while cutting hair, my client asked me if I’ve ever thought of doing acting or modeling. I said I had never even thought of that. My client went on to say that I had a great look and wonderful personality. Shortly after, a meeting was set up with an agent and that is when my life changed with the beginning of a new career.
I began as an extra on TV shows and films whilst doing local fashion shows and even landed three commercials in the first year without having any experience or training! After living in San Diego for six years I decided to take another risk in life and move to Los Angeles, as I knew that is where I needed to be to pursue acting and modeling more seriously. The opportunity to make it big by landing the better roles in films and higher paying modeling gigs was now in sight, so this is where I belonged! Without wasting time and getting too caught in the Hollywood shuffle, I started taking acting classes for commercials and films. So that leads me to where I am at today. I have since landed eleven magazine covers, been in four commercials and acting in many short films. It is a great feeling to have come this far, but my career to me has just begun. I have higher goals and bigger dreams ahead, and will not stop until I see myself in a James Bond film playing an action role. I am very driven and have a fun, independent personality. I really enjoy taking on new challenges and love making people laugh!
