GETTING TO KNOW YOU >>
Where is home?
Las Vegas, NV
Three reasons you love where you live?
The weather, outdoor activities (lakes, snow skiing, hiking) and the entire city is open 24hrs… anything you ever need is always there.
THE DAY JOB >>
What do you do for a living?
I work as a Creative Director, Choreographer and Writer.
A day in the life of you?
Workout, family time, creating and dancing. I dance every day, it keeps me young!
Any recent, ongoing or upcoming projects or achievements we should know about?
Currently, the L.O.L. Surprise! LIVE VIP Party in collaboration with VisitMalta UK Tour, which comes to Newcastle in January 2022! An absolute dream project that is a blast for everyone. Being a parent myself, this project is very near and dear to my heart.
What does downtime mean to you?
Family time is key for me. I truly love being with my husband, daughter and our dogs. The three of us laugh incessantly and can have a good time doing anything. We all love to cook, so downtime will always include a big meal with great music, wine and belly laughing.
LESSONS IN LIFE >>
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I always wanted to be a rollercoaster designer.
What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
LIVE FULL OUT and with kindness! You only have right now, so I live every second, love every second and embrace everything good and bad.
What is your greatest fear?
Losing my family is without a doubt my greatest fear, it’s something I can’t even begin to wrap my mind around.
Which living person do you most admire and why?
My husband. He came from a very broken home and practically raised himself and his little brother single-handed. He worked incredibly hard earning three degrees (all magna cum laude) and became a headliner, then an executive for ten years at Caesar’s Palace and finally achieving his last goal of becoming an elementary school teacher now for seven years.
No one will ever stop him, yet with such a tough upbringing, he is one of the kindest, gentlest, smartest and greatest people in the world. I feel so lucky to be next to him.
LIVING LUXE >>
What is top of your bucket list?
Open my own theme park… it is already designed and ready to go.
What is your most treasured possession?
Without a doubt, my daughter. Becoming a dad was the best thing I ever did.
What does the weekend mean to you?
Family time, gym, long meals, movie nights and game time. We love game nights, another reason to fill our lives with laughter.
A memorable holiday?
HALLOWEEN! Anyone that knows me, knows that. At our house the door opens at noon on Halloween, full buffet and bar, smoke machines going, spooky music, tons of people in and out all day and night.
We’re known for our party and very proud of it. It’s just a blast having all the kids in costumes and the parents letting loose a little, it’s always a perfect evening.
My wedding day. Looking at myself in my suit and walking out knowing that was the last time I would be single in my life. I still have the suit, I keep it and look at it often. The power of that special day.
Who would be your top three dinner guests?
I love comedians and people that don’t take things too seriously yet can see and listen to all sides of an argument. So with that… RuPaul, Dolly Parton and Jo Koy.
The last book you read?
Behind the Magic: Disney Imagineering. Can never get enough of that book. Of course, my latest edition of Rollercoaster Magazine too!
The last thing you listened to?
Club dance music, I turn it on and get my groove on!
The last thing you watched?
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… I mean, I just can’t.
Your three luxe things in life?
1. Health and happiness. I have had a gym membership since I was 16, I appreciate the importance physical activity has for me and what a luxury it is, I can’t live without it.
2. The happy, loving home we designed and built. We’ve created so many memories and every decision and choice made with the design, we did together… very lucky.
3. A family I love that supports my crazy career and lifestyle. That support system is of utmost importance to the fibre of who I am and their love has only helped me flourish every day.
