Welcome! My name is Tami Donaldson. 

I was born and raised in South Florida. Yes! There are some "real Floridians" out there. I loved growing up in Hollywood, Florida with the beautiful beaches and gorgeous weather year round. 

I began my modeling career when I was 15 years old, when a modeling scout approached my father and I in a shopping mall. I worked all throughout high school appearing in numerous catalogs & print campaigns, I was able to purchase my first car when I was 16 years old with cash from modeling, so that was a plus for my parents. :)

I took a break from modeling after high school to get my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Florida Atlantic University and after college I was a 3rd grade teacher for 1 year, until I went back to the entertainment industry. 

In 2005, I thought it was time for me to get a "real job." I was getting out of the modeling industry to try my hand in Florida real estate (just like everyone else), when I won first place in Maxim Magazine's Hometown Hottie contest. Winning this well known contest has opened so many doors for my career and needless to say, was a very pleasant surprise. So, I figured I might as well take advantage of the opportunities while I still can. Real estate and teaching will always be there! 2006 was also a very exciting year for me. To my pleasant surprise, I was named in MAXIM's HOT 100 list, as number 89. I am truly flattered to be part of such a well known list of beautiful women. I was also named Miss Maxim USA in 2007 and appeared on several covers for Maxim in 6 countries. Such a dream come true for a girl born in Hollywood, FL. 

In all my years of modeling, I have traveled to many countries; Canada, Thailand, China, France, India, Italy, England, Czech Republic and many tropical paradises. I feel so fortunate to have experienced so many wonderful places & adventures while modeling that I probably would have never experinced. So, I am so grateful to say the least. 

After living in LA for almost 5 years, I was ready to go back to the east coast. Now, that I'm back in South Florida I produce events & fashion shows. Being in the modeling industry for so many years I have made so many great connections with swimwear & lingerie companies and the nightlife industry, hosting events now I tie the 2 together to produce fashion shows with only the top models in Miami, for nightclubs and special events. Clients I work closely with are; Ed Hardy Swimwear, True Religion Swimwear, Ed Hardy Intimates, Hustler Lingerie, & Playboy Swimwear to name a few.

My NEWEST venture is now makeup artistry, which I'm so excited about and LOVE. After, so many years of being in front of the camera, now I want to be on the other side. I often did my own makeup for many photo shoots and was always interested in the art. So, stay tuned for  HEY GORGEOUS MAKEUP Portfolio coming soon! 

In my free time I enjoy working out, rollerblading, going to the beach, shopping, FASHION, & trying new trends. I'm obsessed with designer purses & shoes. A girl can never have too many shoes. I also like buying & selling on ebay, nothing wrong with a bargain. I still like traveling to new places, just to see how different cultures live, but I'm an ALL American girl and I'm proud to live in the best country in the world. When I don't have events, I love staying home, watching movies, baking, & spending time with my 2 babies, Gucci & Louie my Pomeranian and Chihuahua. 

I'm so grateful to be blessed with such a wonderful husband & family. They are all so important to me, my biggest fans. They have always been my rock. Don't know what I would do without my Mother. LOVE u MOM! 

I began making many changes in my life after reading, The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. This book is life changing! 


God has put me in a postion where I can share my faith and tell nonbelievers about the wonderful changes Jesus Christ has made in my life. I love leading a Christian life & I'm not afraid to share His love with others. If you live in South Florida and are a Christian or not, you should check out, Potential Church in Cooper City. You won't regret it! 

Never lose faith, no matter how hard life gets! 

Hugs & Kisses Tami
