She has moved into directing for branded content, with her recent VOX campaign for Straight Talk Wireless being announced as a 2023 Branded Entertainment finalist at MediaPost’s 2023 Creative Media Awards.
Having successfully transitioned from in front of the camera to behind, Desirée has made a living working in multiple aspects of the production world. She has produced for a variety of media such as: promotional content for Google, YouTube Red (Rhett & Link), music videos for notable artists (Snoop Dogg, Magic!, Jacob Whitesides), and award winning narrative work.

She even worked with the Queen Bee herself on Disney’s Black is King, which awards her ultimate bragging rights.
As an actor, Desirée has a knack for comedic timing, but an equally impressive range when it comes to emotional vulnerability. She is often cast as the Girl Next Door, the Witty Friend, the Unsuspecting Heroine, and the Comedic Voice of Reason. Likable, genuine, and undeniably effervescent (friends can be so kind), she starred opposite Billy Baldwin in the Christmas flick, “Christmas Trade” on the UP Network and has a recurring role in the second season of the internet sensation “LA Macabre”.
