  • I moved to San Diego, California in 2003 when I was 18 years old.
  • I started my first business at 21, a promotional modeling agency called Simple Glam Girls, that then expanded to a print modeling agency, SG Model Management. 
  • I decided to give up my business in 2010 to pursue new adventures in a new city.

When I decided to start my blog, instead of sharing my adventures in the book, I started sharing them on the blog, so I called the blog Little Leopard Book.

  • “How do you stay thin?” – One of my most frequently asked personal questions. Well, you see, I don’t eat any of the food I make. JUST KIDDING! I eat it all, but in between chocolate cookies and buffalo chicken cheesy pasta, I eat tasty things like kale salads and green juice, and I joyfully spring out of bed at 5:45 AM every day to go work out. Kidding, again, I roll myself out of bed and stumble across the room, turn off my obnoxiously loud alarm that I bury below my workout clothes, I mumble a few choice words about how much I don’t want to wake up, but then I do it… because there’s no way I’m giving up pizza, breakfast burritos or chocolate cookies anytime soon!
