about me

My journey has been filled with dance, acting, hosting, producing, moderating and most of all rich in adventure. …I’ve learned that Life isn’t only about reaching the dream, but also about each chapter that inches us closer to our goal. Ultimately I plan to create a multimedia entity that uplifts, inspires & brings the diverse global community together thru positive shared experiences. I’ve hosted numerous shows for NBC, CW, HGTV, LIFETIME, TLC, BET, TVOne including many reunions shows for Lifetime & VH. Because I’m able to deftly manage the multi-layered responsibility of hosting and producing live red carpet events, I've covered all the big ones in LA & NYC including the Oscars, Emmys, Golden Globes, Met Gala, MTV Music Awards, American Music Awards & countless movie premieres for companies like TVGuideNetwork, NBC, Colgate, Essence Magazine and The NAACP.

In my career due to my quick wit, fun energy and interesting take on Hollywood, I’ve been on over 100 episodes as a guest panelist on various shows including GMA, The Today Show, THE View, CNN, Showbiz Tonight, The DailyShare and Larry King.

But now that I’m a mom, I feel even closer to my ultimate goal than ever before. My daughter inspires me everyday to adopt what I’ve learned along this journey and to keep moving forward, fiercely focused on what’s NEXT!!

MISSION: To illuminate thru entertainment!!
