A typical day in my life includes…

waking up to a warm cup of coffee, working out, or hopping on a flight to NY, LA or Norway for meetings. I don’t have the typical job so my life is an adventure. If I am not on a plane, you’ll find me writing for MariaShriver.com or my blog, TheOtherHubby.com

I was born…

to entertain, be creative, and make people think.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is the easy living lifestyle, breathtaking sunsets, and being close to my family.

I’m listening to…

the sound of my Goddaughter, Natalie’s laugh. Her happiness is so contagious.

My family…

means the world to me. I have so much gratitude to my parents, grandmother, siblings, and relatives. My older sister, Jackie and I are only 11 months apart in age, so we have a particularly close bond. I really appreciate a large family. Getting together for the holidays is an absolute blast.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Oprah Winfrey. I had the pleasure to shake her hand years ago, but would love to treat her to dinner. I really enjoy a deep conversation about life, love, and any lesson I can learn from.

One thing I cannot live without…

my hunky boyfriend, Nick. He keeps me grounded and has made me a better person. Nick is an absolute star. The amount of fun we have together is unbelievable.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

on television and make people laugh. Humor is powerful and can help people get through just about anything.

I’m inspired by…

anyone that thinks out of the box, creates value, and has the ability to spread positivity into the world.

The one person who motivates me is…

my soul-sista, Kaley O’Kelley who use to anchor Good Morning Arizona (before landing a job in Dallas recently). She understands the industry so well and continues to support me with everything that I do. You may not know this about Kaley, but she is a very spiritual person who completely gets what life is all about and is incredibly direct.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

that there was more compassion and understanding for people that are different. The world would be a better place with less judgment.

The perfect day would be…

sitting on the beaches of Hawaii with Nick all afternoon, and later going to a dinner party where all our loved ones are gathered.

My first job was…

here in Phoenix at ABC 15 News! It was a life-changing job that I will never forget. I loved every minute of it and was so inspired by the hard working team I had the pleasure to be around. They taught me so much about the television business, and motivated me to move to Hollywood. My last day there, the news team gave me the nicest goodbye party.

My favorite escape…

I love checking out new hotels and their spas. It is such a luxury to me. Where there is room service and a gorgeous view – count me in!

My life…

would make a really interesting movie one day. There is so much people don’t know about.

I’m currently working on…

a television and book project. Stay tuned!

Always…

be grateful for what you have in life. Gratitude turns what you have into enough.

Never…

say never.

Favorite Quote…

“What happens to you does not matter; what you become through those experiences is all that is significant. This is the true meaning of life.”

Biggest Dream…

I’m living it! I take serious action when it comes to my dreams.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

negative energy. Keep that shit away from me.
