I’ve been chosen as a La Roche-Posay Be Clear Ambassador!

Hey everyone! I have really great news to share… I’ve been chosen as a La Roche-Posay Be Clear Ambassador!  (La Roche-Posay provided a product sample for review purposes, and all opinions are clearly my own).

The timing for representing this amazing product couldn’t have been better, as I was just planning my summer adventures & wondered how I was going to travel, hike mountains, & bathe in volcanic waterfalls without creating any damage to my skin. Needless to say, I was so excited to have as part of my skincare arsenal LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS 50 MINERAL ULTRA LIGHT SUNSCREEN FLUID  .

Not only did it protect my skin, but it gave me the freedom to go carefree of any sunburn to my fair complexion…priceless!

Pioneer Winter // Collective HOST

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend my colleague and friend, Pioneer Winter’s, brilliant presentation of HOSTphysical theatre performance. For me to attempt to describe in words would not do justice to such an intelligent work that truly takes you through an experience, a journey of emotions. Here is Pioneer’s description:

“HOST is an all-male physical theatre work that explores power, authority, control, isolation, and desire. Within these paths, the word ‘host’ emerges as both sexualized territory as well as a bodily struggle. ‘Host’ is layered in the queer community, where one word is weighted by both history and its digital presence – host of a dinner party, host of a game show, host to an orgy, host to a virus…
HOST by Pioneer Winter and Jared Phillip Sharon

Performers: Patrick Rodriguez, Dario Gonzalez, Alex Ortiz, Alberto Pena Jr., Pioneer Winter

Sound and composition: ABI-LI-TY”

 

Here are some of the photos captured that night with my dear friend and fellow choreographer/dancer, Ana Bolt, along side HOST creators and performer.

Monroe County Tourism Photoshoot – Behind the Scenes!

This week, I had a wonderful opportunity, thanks to my fantastic model & print agent, to work on a Monroe County Tourism campaign for the Florida Keys & Key West , shot by film & production company McCray Martin.

Here, I got caught photobombing a couple of the other models between takes…oops!IMG_6219

Then, I got photobombed myself by the photographer..lol!02

The director & crew were equally professional & so much fun to work with at the same time. It was also hard to believe the FREEZING temps we experienced here in Florida.               Still, the shoot was a success!

Enjoy the rest of the sneak peak behind the scenes 😉

KFC TV Spot, ‘Enfoca a tu familia’

Check out my latest KFC national TV spot for the hispanic market!

I had so much fun hanging out on set all day as the fun, funky, cool “Aunt” of this family reunion.

Director: Guillermo Pellufo

A day in my life as a FTLStrikers Captain/Choreographer

When I was contacted by Pierre Rivard of Up In Front, I jumped at the chance to work with him as part of a cool, little documentary on what it is like to be a dancer/choreographer for Fort Lauderdale’s only NASL pro soccer team, The Strikers!

Here, you get a sneak peak into the rehearsal, game-day preparation, fan zone, half-time performance, and post-performance photo-ops with our loyal fans.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to have worked for Up In Front and to share the experience with everyone. Enjoy!

Did I mention, I cut my hair! :]

Many thanks to EPS Photography and their amazing team of professionals for my newest headshot!

Sunny 107.9FM Morning Show Fun!

Working with Deena Lang, Jennifer Ross, & Bill Adams of the Sunny 1079 Morning Show was such a blast!

Sunny 1079 Morning Show

When I got called and asked if I wanted to spend the morning playing with makeup on this crew, it didn’t take but more than a couple of seconds to answer “yes”! So, for this gig, I went in as a freelance makeup artist with EPS Entertainment Photography Specialists to turn out great head shots for this entertaining trio. (Of course, I didn’t have time to get my own makeup done before this shot :/)

I’m so happy with the results. They all look great!
