When I was 9 or 10, my parents knew I had a year or so before that awkward stage set in. JKJKJKJK about putting words in their mouths, but NOT about how true that turned out! Soooo, it was a good thing I got some kid modeling gigs in just in time! I ended up doing a few national cereal commercials, some print advertising and I was on the cover of a game box. That’s also when I realized I had a cowlick.
I remember feeling like it was kinda random, but alsooooo pretty cool! Now, 20+ years later, similar feelings are back when I drive by my cheesin’ grin on a highway billboard in Providence. It feels totally random, but also pretty cool!
Now, about that 4:30am start time it says up there… YUP! That’s when we’re LIVE. And YUP! I wake up looking like this —
So, naturally (LOL) the question I get asked most is, “What time do you wake up?”
2:45am. But get this — I’ve found that it’s EASIER to do that, than committing to a BEDTIME. Pushing yourself to get into bed and fall asleep WHEN IT’S STILL LIGHT OUT and life is happening all around you is a real #thestruggleisreal moment, y’all. So, before I started the gig, I bought all these things below and now I SWEAR BY THEM!!
Fast forward to 4:30am and now I’ve also squeezed into a “paint-on” dress, brought my face back to life with enough makeup for 3 people and did some squats while I curled/straightened my locks. Additionally, I’ve built the visuals I’ll show in the first half hour and memorized my first hit. #butfirstcoffee
Local TV news, especially in the morning — and esp. in a unique market like Rhode Island — is still the most popular source of info for Americans than any other. I know I speak for my entire team when I say, THANK YOU for watching and following!!
