Deanna was raised in an Italian restaurant North of Boston by her Parents, Nicola & Mary. For years she learned authentic Italian cuisine in the family restaurant and at home.

Early on Deanna discovered her talents for music, so at 18, cooking took a backseat. She was awarded a full tuition scholarship to Berklee College of Music.

After graduation, she left the family business and pursued a career in entertainment. Deanna was a quarter semifinalist of Season 8 of America’s Got Talent, has written and sung on over 200 songs for Radio, TV and Film- including a Top 3 Billboard hit and has sung backgrounds for and with some of the world’s biggest artists, producers and songwriters such as Celine Dion, David Foster, Justin Bieber, Diane Warren and Nick Jonas to name a few!

Deanna auditioned for MasterChef Season 10 and won a coveted white apron from Judges Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Aarón Sánchez to make the Top 20.

Inspired by her time on MasterChef, Deanna decided to take her creativity to the plate! She realized food is entertainment as well.

Deanna was a Judge & Chef on 5 episodes of SLING’s show Hot Mess Express. She creates content for video network Tastemade and teaches cooking classes privately and virtually through TakeLessons and Eatwith. She also is a Host and MC for Mini Exhibitions. Deanna was cast as a Chef in an online ad for Facebook/Oculus, as well as appearing in an ad for Imperfect Foods.

Her partnerships include Sphericator by Cedar Lane, Imperfect Foods, OneHope Wine, Girl’s Life Magazine, Keto Krate, Boos Blocks and ChefUniforms.

Deanna is an entertaining dynamo! Whether on stage or on a plate, Deanna oozes BIG FLAVOR! She Cooks. She Sings. She Entertains. She's the host doing the MOST!
