“Dreaming in Color” with Jeevo

Was it all a dream or did this really happen? Two weeks ago, I sang at a concert upon coming out of “singing retirement” after almost eight years of focusing on acting and modeling. I’m going to be vlogging about my experience working with Jeevo (Rajeev Nandakumaran), but I wanted to talk more in depth about how…

Gaining Confidence as a Performer

Why put yourself in the face of rejection time and time again? It’s my passion. I honestly can’t imagine a life without performing. I was created for this, and I know the Lord led me to where I am today.

“Fashioned4Life” Fashion Show

In the fall of 2015, I was asked by a good friend of mine to be in a fashion show. It had been a while since I walked the runway because I was focusing on being a new mommy, so I was little hesitant but ultimately excited to be involved. I was informed that there…

“Very Smart Brothas” The TV Pilot Premieres

It’s pretty common for projects to take a little while before they premiere to the public. I’m excited to announce that a TV Pilot I worked on at the end of last year will be debuting soon. This is one of the perks of being an actress. Just when a project has gone into the…

Mika Newton “Come Out and Play” Behind the Scenes

Apparently my specialty seems to be working on music videos and angry, dramatic roles. In Mika Newton’s production of her single “Come Out and Play”, I get to represent both aspects. Mika is a pop artist from Ukraine with a powerful voice that apparently can change your whole day–according to the concept of the video….

Witnessing a Movement

  Over a year ago, I was with my Derekstar friends attending a fashion show in Irvine, California when I met this cool guy. Outside, we were enjoying the food trucks, having a conversation, and recapping the event that just ended a few minutes prior. I had never met Dan before, but he came up to our…

Hold onto Peace

There has a been a death of what some people consider the most wicked of wicked men. Last night my husband recieved a text from a friend asking if we’d heard what happened. We don’t watch the news, so we were shocked to find out that Osama Bin Laden was killed. In this moment, many…

Reality Check!

  I find it fascinating how many people will watch a “reality” TV show religiously and believe every scenario they present, but continue to question the most real situation that happens to us after our death and the ultimate purpose of our lives. Heaven or hell? You ask this and most people will laugh at the fact…

Fallen Eve.

When I first meet them, I get nervous. I wonder if I’m good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, witty enough. All of the doubts I have come to the surface when we are first introduced. What do I say? I’m not interesting. Do we have anything in common? I have nothing to offer. Most women…

Confirmation Station

Being a Christian, I choose to go the way God leads me and seek His advice when it comes to making decisions in my life–major and minor. Confirmation is a way He lets me know I’m on the right path. For those of you who are unfamiliar with that term, it’s when God shows or…

Speechless…

Recently, a few people have commented on how they most appreciate my singing above my other gifts. I’d have to say that falls pretty low on my list of favorites. The reason being that it exposes who I am. My voice is ME. I can’t hide behind a camera, layers of makeup, a fictional character,…
