I’m a South Florida girl currently living the dream in Los Angeles, Calif. I graduated Florida State Graduate Film School in August 2002 and drove across the bottom of the United States, arriving in “the La La” eleven days after graduation.
I’ve been a fast-food server, an accounts payable clerk, a researcher, a copyeditor, a technical writer and an executive assistant. I currently work in post production in Hollywood. Someday, I’m going to be a professional film and television director.
To that end, I’ve directed three short films, including my award-winning “Every Little Girl’s Dream,” and am currently working on my fourth, a five-minute high-def short entitled “Hammer.” I also directed a Public Service Announcement in 2004. My life is a constant flurry of applications to programs, industry events and planning my next move.
On my journey though, I found myself starved for a regular creative outlet for self-expression. Enter blogging. I started my personal blog, Everyday Goddess, in March 2005. I’m also a sex & relationships contributing editor for Blogher. Funny story: When I arrived at Blogher in 2005, I was amazed to discover that personal blogs weren’t the only blogs out there! And personal blogging is still the heart and soul of the blogosphere for me.
As for romance, I’m currently starting a new relationship after a few rocky years of active single life in the crazy Los Angeles dating scene. I’m hoping this one sticks, and I look forward to sharing my personal stories and romantic insights with you!

Chemistry, Our Fickle Mistress
That mysterious connection, that intangible thing that makes your words trip, your heart race, your mind wander: Chemistry. I've felt it; it's definitely real. Yet sadly, so often it doesn't
This Valentine's Day, Just Say No To Whiny Men
I'm developing a serious pet peeve. These people and their whining about Hallmark Holidays. And if it's Christmas, then it's Oh, it's all just so commercialized, wah, wah, wah. So
Are People Really Still Smoking?
Seriously - It's 2007, and it's getting to the point where smoking is just plain crazy. It's killing you; it's totally disgusting; and it's not OK. Yes, this is a
How to Break Up.
At lunch with a friend a day after my most recent break-up, the topic of hurting people came up. I was explaining that my ex-boyfriend and I were going to
Ask about STDs.
I was thinking about my recent break-up - because he treated me right. And I was thinking that while half of it is: Good Guy; there's another half that's: Hey,
I'm back in the single again.
I wish this was a post about quitting. I wish this was a post about giving up on love. I even had it planned. I'd even thought, If this one
Just Kiss Me.
There's not really anything else that compares to perfect kissing, is there? I'm not going to try to describe, because I'm pretty certain that what makes a perfect kiss for
