I came from two years working as the choreographer/director of two different resorts, Club Med and Club Maeva, from multiple locations in Mexico, the Turks & Caicos Islands and Florida.
Prior to this, I was finishing my bachelor's degree in dance, journalism, French and international studies at California State University, Long Beach. I was accepted as an intern to Dance magazine my senior year, jumped on a plane and flew across the country two days after graduation.
I started working as the copy and production editor for Movmnt Magazine, while writing two books that I would later publish, “Vital Energy” and Flicker. I was also freelancing intermittently for Beautiful/Decay, Ehow, E.L.M., L.A. Splash, Move, Suite 101 and Valley Scene magazines.
While preparing for graduate life, I was the managing editor for the campus magazine called DIG, and DJing a radio show on campus called L’Ambiance under the alias Jazzerina Jaye. That year, I was also the choreographer for an American Basketball Association team, The Buzz’s dance team, the Honeybees.
This was after I had spent a busy year writing, dancing and soul-searching in Aix-en-Provence, France. I published articles in French for IEFEEXpress and Ladies Room magazines before moving to Italy for a dance intensive with ProDanza Italia/USA.
Before I lived in Europe, I was the city editor for the CSULB's newspaper, The Daily Forty-Niner, while teaching dance class every night at 24 Hour Fitness locations all over Southern California. I also interned at Fox News Channel in L.A. to better understand broadcast media.
I danced in SuperBowl XXXVII’s Pregame and Half-time shows, as well as a runway fashion show for L.A. Models while still in high school. At this time, I was also writing and editing for my school’s newspaper, The Gangplank.
