Modeling, hosting, acting… In the 23 years since Linda joined the entertainment industry, she has done it all. Countless print, runway, editorial, and campaign jobs are where Linda learned her trade - by doing and succeeding in all areas, and cultivating an impressive client list from such brands as Neiman Marcus and Fossil to name only a scant few, to the likes of GQ, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan magazines in several markets, as well as being selected to walk the prestigious runways for Milan fashion week… the list of accolades is too numerous to list here. From her humble beginnings in Texas, she has since traveled the world letting her modeling career take her to the fashion capitals of North America, Asia, and Europe, and everywhere in between.
In Singapore for the past decade, Linda was able to make the envious transition from not just being seen, but heard as she moved in front of the camera to host several different television programs for cable networks such as AXN Asia, Channel News Asia, Discovery Channel Asia, Diva/Universal, and Food Network Asia, as well as helming the flagship program HBO Central for HBO Asia for many years.
But that wasn't all. With her ability to be well spoken and to entertain a crowd, Linda also was a very popular and sought after live event host in the region for many corporate clients, and even was a co-host for the live broadcast event of Miss Earth 2013.
Formerly based in SE Asia, Linda parlayed her extensive industry knowledge and entrepreneurial experience into being a founding member of the wildly successful talent group [the]Collective Asia, which is currently extending its outreach into the US market. Known to be game changers in the industry, she is still an active member of the group, looking for new ways to further push development for creative ideas in the region, as well as continuing to run the website for her fellow members and their clients. It's a labor of love.
Recently relocated to the US market, Linda divides her time between auditions, modeling, developing her social media outreach, and caring for her two children with her husband, television presenter Oli Pettigrew.
