She leads engaging conversations with celebrities as a moderator for BUILD and has discussed trending topics and pop culture as a beauty expert during SXSW, Beautycon Festival New York, as well as on Good Morning America and BBC’s World Have Your Say.

A journalism and African-American studies graduate from the City of Brother and Sisterly Love’s Temple University, Dana has also received her master’s in journalism from CUNY’s Graduate School of Journalism. When she’s not stalking celebrity makeup artists, hairstylists, and manicurists on Instagram, you can find Dana bopping along to the legendary lyricist Beyoncé, shopping the sale rack at Zara, or cooking up slow-cooked grits that take her back to her roots in South Carolina.
