Lizza Monet Morales is a rising actress who has already made a name for herself as a bilingual reporter and brand ambassador. This proud Latina, is a native Angeleno, who calls Los Angeles and New York home. Picking up her first copy of Variety and The Hollywood Reporter at the age of 8, Lizza immediately fell in love with the entertainment industry and the rest as they say is history. Lizza is a dedicated artist who enjoys storytelling on stage, in film and on television. She was most recently seen in David Mamet’s “Phil Spector” biopic for HBO starring Al Pacino and Helen Mirren.

Lizza has been on-air for Access Hollywood, Telemundo, EXTRA, Univision, Celebrity Justice, The Insider and The TV-Guide Channel among others. In addition, she has reported for Us Weekly, People Magazine and was a featured columnist in Item Magazine. You can also find her online reporting on the crazy adventures of her daily life on her blog, xoxoLizza.com. She was featured as Moda & Estilo Magazine’s cover girl for their 2013 holiday issue.  As the ultimate “tomboy in heels”, Lizza is a bold and early adopter who loves all things tech, auto, gadgets, social media and entrepreneurship as much as her obsession with beauty, fashion, travel, philanthropy, eco-living and the arts.

Lizza seamlessly combines her vast experience in front and behind the camera, as both a multi-platform bilingual journalist and producer, to deliver a brands’ message in a way that organically connects with consumers. Since at the end of the day, she’s an avid consumer herself. As a result, clients like the Latin GRAMMY Awards have hired her to be their backstage brand ambassador the last three years. In 2014, the GRAMMYS brought her on board in the same capacity. In 2013, she was elected as the first social media conference ambassador for the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP) Nationwide Conference. She also served as the official host for the 2013 Latinos In Social Media (LATISM) Conference. Others, such as, CBS’s “The Insider”, LA’s prestigious Center Theater Group and HBO Latino have tapped her to be a social media correspondent for a variety of events, such as the Oscars and opening nights for the major theater productions in LA or TV specials.

Last year, she was chosen to speak alongside politician Wendy Gruel and eyebrow queen Anastasia Sore to the graduates of a domestic violence survival program.  She also is a frequent “Career Day” speaker for schools in the Los Angeles area and a motivational speaker across the country.

Most recently, Lizza was selected as one of ten “All Star Bloggers” in the US, by the board of Hispancize 2014 for excelling in her field. She was also a featured contributor during the White House’s special #GetCovered live telecast from the YouTube Space in Los Angeles. For the 2014 Academy Awards, Lizza was a social media correspondent for Vanity Fair and once again for CBS’s ‘The Insider.” She also was selected to co-host, HBO’s special “Corazon Live: Carlos Santana” alongside Carlos Ponce.

Lizza attended Harvard University and Middlebury College, where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and double minor in Economics and Japanese. She also earned a post-graduate journalism certificate from UCLA and is a graduate of the Atlantic Theater Company’s master conservatory program. A natural born connector, nothing brings Lizza greater pleasure than championing on the efforts of other entrepreneurs and being a resource to colleagues and mentor to the next generation.  When not working, you can catch Lizza either, speaking Japanese, salsa dancing, traveling, volunteering, tinkering with a new gadget or tweeting and blogging about her latest adventure.

Race to Erase MS, The Carrousel Ball, Junior League Of Los Angeles, Mar Vista Children’s Center and Lupus LA are among the non-profit organizations Lizza donates her time too.  Lizza has also served as a member of the board of directors for the Downtown Film Festival – Los Angeles and as a host committee member for Latino Fashion Week – Los Angeles. You can connect with her online by looking up @xoxolizza on any social media platform you’re on.
