“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…

“Queen of Heartz” Photoshoot

I had my daughter about a year and a half ago. It took about a year after she was born for me to get back into the swing of things and remember who I am as a person, and a performer. I was praying for opportunities to start acting and modeling again, but didn’t know…

Synchronized Shooting…

  It was a dark and stormy night… Well, it would have been if we hadn’t set a rain check for our photo shoot with John and Tweedy. A few months ago in September–for our Anniversary–John and Tweedy Cudal offered one of the best gifts my husband and I have ever gotten. Memories! Both partners of this photography duo…

Art in Transition

  One of the major reasons I was able to start a life in California was due to an awesome, God-fearing artist formally known as Amy Wagner. When we first met, we were both single women living in Hawaii. In a matter of two short years we both changed our last names and ventured into a new…

Trade for What?

We would all love to have a stylist dress us each day so we didn’t have to pick out our own wardrobe. It would also be nice to leave the house with flawless hair and makeup, but that’s not the reality for most of us. Maybe when the money rolls in you’ll be able to afford that luxury,…

So you want to model, huh?

I’ve been asked a few times by friends or perfect strangers about how to get into the field of modeling. I wouldn’t say I’m an expert, but if I’m being asked it must mean that I’m doing something good, right? I’ve been blessed with some amazing opportunities and I’d be a liar if I said I got them…

Angelino Footsteps

Let me start off by saying that I highly dislike the term Angelino. It kinda reminds me of Brangelina and all those mashed together names that are meant to sound cool. I thought it was actually a joke when I first read it in a local magazine. It’s not. It’s the term for people who…

MaiLe’s Canvas

February 2008 was my second experience modeling for genuineHI‘s The Next Movement. To be perfectly honest, I’d been involved in other shows where my hair and makeup wasn’t up to par because they weren’t used to the texture of my hair or my skin tone. Thinking this time would have similar results, I had already…

RZone hits the streets…literally.

  I’d say it’s pretty rude to throw someone’s artwork on the ground, but RZone has intentionally made pieces that you can walk on. She’s asked me to promote her new shoes–I KNOW, isn’t that so cool!–in my blog.
