my love affair with mtv + FUN NEWS!

Since about the age of 12, MTV has been a huge part of my life. I used to watch and obsess over the cool music videos (they actually had those when I was young…I’m old) and wished I was on “The Grind” and “The Real World.” Then in high school, I made the “The Grind” part, a reality…yup, at the impressionable age of 16, I was shaking my a$$ on MTV. In college, I decided I wanted to intern at MTV. I remember calling up 1515 and asking for the news department. I somehow convinced them to transfer me and the following semester, I was an intern at MTV News! After graduation, I worked at ABC News, but that only last 3 months, before I realized local & world news was way too depressing and went back to MTV. I worked as a PA and then a producer for 4 years and met my current beau and fiance Damien there, he was a VJ at the time, it was scandalous! Then I moved to LA to pursue acting and hosting. I tell you all this, because almost 8 years after leaving MTV…I’m back! If you follow me on Instagram or read this post, you know that I’m in NYC. Well, I’m here taping 10 episodes of a new show on (you guessed it) MTV! I’m the on-camera stylist for a new show starring a hilarious lady you’ll love! I wish I could tell you more, but I don’t want to be sued. I promise I’ll share all the details as soon as I can. I’m in NY shooting till April so following me on Instagram for the daily goodies. Until then, I’ll continue my love affair with MTV.
