Birthday: April (Earth sign Taurus)
Birth town: Las Vegas, NV
Bands: Obviously just about anything from the 80’s, plus a very wide variety of music genres
from classical to country, jazz & showtunes, & even a few tunes from the early 1900’s, but here are some just to name
a few: April March, Betty Davis, Morcheeba, Bjork, Portishead, Klaxons, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Veruca Salt, MC Frontalot,
Blackalicious, G-Love & The Special Sauce, Jack White, Beck, Rage Against The Machine, Down, Five Finger Death Punch, Tori
Amos, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Simon & Garfunkel, Parliament, Rolling Stones, Black Crowes, The Yeah, Yeah, Yeah’s, Hank
Williams, Willie Nelson, and anything by Mozart.
Movies: Anything by Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs, 4 Rooms, Inglorious Basterds, Django, etc.), Wes
Anderson (Bottle Rocket, The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore, Darjeeling Limited, Life Aquatic, Fantastic Mr. Fox, etc.), or
Alfred Hitchcock (Shadow of A Doubt, The 39 Steps, Psycho, To Catch A Thief, Rear Window, The Birds, etc.). I like all
sorts of movies, but these are my top three favorite writer/directors of all time.
TV Shows: Masterpiece Classic and anything on the BBC. I’m a history fanatic so usually it’s a
documentary piece or based on real history. I have a serious soft spot for English and European History.
Food: Oh, why yes…I do enjoy food! Seafood, poultry, wild game, vegetables & grains please...I
like to find or make healthy alternatives to the junk foods of my past, & definitely no fast food (sorry, JW!) I believe
in nutritional education and making good food choices based on the needs of my body. Ask me why sometime, I’ve got a
great story to tell.
Drink: WATER! Anytime, anyway, bubbly or still...WATER! Hot beverage is 3 shots of espresso, a
few splashes of steamed milk, & a sprinkle of cinnamon, & by night a high quality whiskey with TONS of ice (preferably served
in a brandy snifter, but I’ll settle if I have to) [Editor's note: for the record, Dez appears to have 'settled' on the
occasional shot of Jack (the official shot of Radio Star) without too much resistance]...
Likes: Entertaining people through song, dance & acting, farming & raising animals to eat, practicing
sustainable living & agriculture, DIY anything, continuing education, reading, HISTORY, designing & getting tattoos,
recycling, open minded positive people, offering hair, skin & makeup care & educating others on how to take care of their
skin/bodies, clean healthy eating, my family & friends.
Dislikes: Bad attitudes, unethical people/companies, lima beans, my abnormally long toes (missed the
“cute shoe boat” so many times), uncomfortable silence, when gnomes and elves hide my stuff, being too high off the ground,
really big spiders, the creepy corner of my basement.
Won't go anywhere without: A minimum of 3 bags containing everything I could ever need anywhere,
anytime. If I’m traveling to do make-up, skin care or massage it’s up to 6 bags and possibly a massage table!
Hailing from a musical family, Dez grew up listening to 80's music.
As a toddler, she started vocal training, and has been performing since she was 7, singing in variety and
talent shows, and with various bands and musicians throughout the years.
In August of 2015, Dez answered an ad for an 80’s cover band seeking a female lead singer.
After her audition, she was offered and accepted the lead vocal spot in Radio Star, starting in 2015. She is
the visual and vocal lead in the band --- Radio Star's onstage party starter and center of energy!
