Frequently asked

    questions

    Blogging

    How did you get started?

    In 2009, I became a freelance wardrobe style for personal clients and a campaign stylist American Eagle/Aerie. Back then I also started on-camera hosting. My hosting agent told me I needed a niche and I told him about my styling. It was then, I turned my personal website into a blog. Two years later in 2011, I started doing outfit posts and the rest is history.

    Is blogging your full time job?

    Yes. But I’m also a full time actress. I do both every single day.

    Do you have any advice for who is starting a blog?

    Just do it. Seriously. Don’t talk about it, don’t dream about it, just go for it! And with that be YOU. Don’t try to be like any other blogger out there. Find your unique voice and work hard at it. I’ve been blogging since 2011. I didn’t make a living from blogging until 2014. It takes time but if you really love, you’ll stick with it! If you don’t love it, that’s okay too!

    Personal

    Where are you from?

    I’m originally from Brooklyn, New York. At age 12, my family and I moved to Manhattan where I lived until I moved to Los Angeles in 2005.

    Are you married?

    Yes! I’ve been with my husband, Damien Fahey since 2007. We married on June 28th, 2013.

    Do you have children?

    No. We do not have children though we have been trying to conceive. More on our journey here.

    Acting

    When did you start acting?

    I’ve always loved acting and television. When I was a kid, I was obsessed with sitcoms. I watched way too much television and knew then that I wanted to one day be on TV. But, I was also the first person in my immediately family to go to college and as a first-generation American, I felt I had to get “a real job.” It wasn’t until I turned 30, that I seriously started pursuing acting. I had been in LA for 3 years and I was ready to take the plunge!

    Do you have an agent?

    Yes. I am represented by Courtney Peldon at Aqua Talent for television and film. My manager is Brian Ferrantino and my commercial agent is Jennifer York at DPN. You can find their contact info here.

    Any advice on how to get started?

    Similar to my advice on blogging, if you want to be an actor then you need to just do it! What I mean by that is, get into acting classes, audition for plays in your town, find other actors and creatives and make a web series. Be active in launching your career. Acting careers take time. No one is an over night success. They may seem like one when they land a hit tv show or film but 99% of those people have been acting for at least 10 years before they “hit it big.” Plus, so many actings are simply “working actors” which is amazing! They may not be famous but they make a living doing what they love!
