Diona has worn many hats in her illustrious years as a "grown-up” from the owner of a Production Company VIP TV, producing the show MotorCity Connections, an urban celebrity interview program that once aired on the regional CW. Guest included a who’s who list of guests from Star Jones, Diddy, Musiq Soulchild, and Gerald Levert to Birdman, Kanye West, and Michael Strahan. Also covered the NBA ALLSTAR WEEKEND, SUPER BOWL weekends, and private parties of today’s rich and infamous. After being laid off from her “day job” working at Detroit’s DPTV Channel 56 she decided to follow the song for the show Beverly Hill Billie’s so “she packed up her bags and moved to Beverly…..Hills… swimming pools and movie stars”….well not exactly. More Like North Hollywood where she soon learned about the world of Localization for movies and tv, it simply means to dub the project in the language of the region it will air in so German to air in Germany or any number of languages. But as always Diona needs to feed her creativity, so she currently does a Podcast called MJ ALL DAY where she interviews people who have worked with the King of Pop. She plans to produce a documentary about him as well.
