I’m originally from the Pacific Northwest, which will always have my heart. My parents started out in Humboldt County, California, but my family moved around a lot in my younger years (making me the forever-new kid in school). Our last big family move was up to Seattle, so that’s where I say I’m from. I ended up moving away for school, graduated with a degree in advertising and history, and soon after moved to New York City to work for a big media company on 7th Avenue. I worked in advertising for a while, but became restless with agency life and switched over to working as an event planner for an innovative start-up company – driving a huge company RV around the country, planning parties and events to entertain clients and pitch our concept. Now I live in Southern California, doing print and commercial modeling and freelancing my media and events skills whenever I can.
