MEET OUR HOSTS

 

Ayoe Ingemann Lai

Host of Creating Great Health

CreatingGreatHealth@wrspradio.com

I’m from Denmark and directly descending from the Vikings just a few generations ago and the Vikings were the first to discover North America :)

When WRSP approached me about the radio show, I was excited about the opportunity. I see the radio show as an opportunity to share my healing journey and things I have learned along the way with other people as well as food related topics, which is a great love of mine.

The experiences I’m going through in life are the cornerstones for this show, so I definitely couldn’t do the show without all the good and bad I’ve been through. I think I’m good at sharing experiences and practical tips so the listeners can learn something. I like to help people on their journey to be a better version of themselves.

It is a great challenge for me as well as a super exciting one!

Vanessa Gomez

Host of Killer Queens

Vanessa can credit her looks to her unique blend of German and Mexican genetics. Born and raised by a single mother in San Diego, Vanessa began acting locally in the fourth grade when she participated in Balboa Park's Summer Theatre Program. Continuing to pursue her passion for the performing arts through high school and into college, Vanessa eventually made the move to Los Angeles where one of her first auditions became her first big break.

Taking a more entrepreneurial role in her acting career, Vanessa started her own production company in 2010, Wicked Wolf Films, LLC. They released their first film project “Vamps” in 2010 and their next move was to blast out of the coffin with her horror alter personality “Gore Whore” and started “Nightmare Nightcap”, an original horror culture show, where she covered the hottest topics in horror. Joining the Dreadcentral family in 2013, she co-hosted Dread Central Live with horror expert and beauty Staci Layne Wilson. The show consisted of hot topics and interviews with horror’s top producers and artists. You can find Vanessa sharing her thoughts each week on her vlog hosted on Dreadcentral’s Youtube Channel entitled “Gore Whore Uncensored”. Vanessa affectionately refers to Jason Voorhees as her “lover” as she credits the Friday the 13th franchise for her addiction to horror. Stay tuned for what she has in store for “Gore Whore” and Jason in the next year.

Martini Jean

Host of The Superhero Sandbox

Martini Jean has a certification in screenwriting from the New York Film Academy and a certification in Radio Broadcasting from The Recording, Radio, & Film Connection. He always had a vivid imagination growing up yet had trouble expressing it. After catching the writing bug back in college, he could finally begin to put his thoughts onto paper. First, he wrote poetry as a hobby then he challenged himself writing faux episodes for shows that he would have loved to write for (mainly superhero animated shows). One of his first editorial jobs was writing review articles for an online website but the itch to be more creative wasn’t being scratched so he delved into screenwriting and novel writing as well. Currently with 1 script done and a book in the making, Martini has no shortage of outlets to let his creative juices flow. Recently making several guest-host appearances on a friend’s podcast, he’s found another way to let his voice be heard. Literally. One day with the creative trifecta of his thoughts, pen and voice, he would like to open up his own production company to further explore his interests in the world of imagination.

Martini enjoys playing video games, watching comic-book related shows, and fleshing out new ideas to be made into purchasable works one day.
