Her numerous endeavors from hosting to production work has helped her build wealth. She also engages in other business endeavors, and runs a podcast.
Heather grew up in Philadelphia and becamw accustomed to living in a big city with millions in the population. However, when she was 12 years old, her family decided to move to somewhere much quieter and closer to nature, a small town of Montana which had just around 8,000 people living in the area. She did not initially agree to the move, as she didn’t like the drastic change from city to country.
She went from riding bikes to moving around in nature and she eventually grew to love Montana. She became used to living in an area with fresh creeks, open fields, trees, and other nature-filled locations. After the move, she became much closer to her father, who taught her the importance of being independent and acquiring various skills. She learned how to shoot, use various tools, and remodel houses. This led her to discover a profound interest and passion for automobiles, as she worked with her father on several cars.
Education and Career Beginnings
After matriculating from high school, she followed her love for nature in her studies as she enrolled at Oregon State University.
The university is known for being the largest school in the state, with hundreds of thousands in attendance. She completed a degree in Environmental Science, and after graduation moved to Puerto Rico, becoming a part of the sustainable tourism movement there. As a part of her work, she spent a lot of time on the beaches in the country, and did a lot of surfing. However, she felt that living there wasn’t enough, and after contemplating it for a long time, she decided that she wanted to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
She moved to Los Angeles where opportunities were abundant, and started taking acting classes while working a job that would help pay the bills.
She then auditioned several times, and eventually found work as a model. She also started to gain a presence online, and established herself as a fitness trainer. As her reputation grew, so did her collaborators, and she eventually helped establish the business Black LAB, an events company based in the city.
Acting and Television Work
While she was busy with her online presence and other projects, Storm began appearing regularly in commercials, thanks to her diligence. She also worked on the independent film “No Bad Days”, which starred Keith David and Richard Tyson. Her love for automobiles and traveling eventually caught on too, as she was hired to become one of the hosts of “Garage Squad”.
The show focuses on a team of mechanics and other automotive experts who help various people around the country who lack the manpower, expertise, or resources to make their automobile projects come through.
She stayed with the show for four years and gained a significant following. However, after the fourth season, she suddenly announced that she had agreed with producers that she was leaving the show to pursue other endeavors. She was replaced by Cristy Lee, a motorcycle enthusiast who’s also hosted other automotive shows in the past.
Heather declined to comment further on why she left the show, only stating that things must end eventually, which inevitably led to a lot of speculation – some stated that there must’ve been some financial or creative disagreement, but nothing has ever been confirmed.
So Heather focused her attention on other projects, and eventually became a part of the production team of the travel series “Drive Yourself Local”. The show features her traveling across the US driving a Mustang, experiencing culture in various localities. Apart from this work, she also helped produce the show “The MixDown”, which focuses on giving more exposure to lesser-known electronic dance music (EDM) songs.
She was also hired by the mixed martial arts (MMA) focused television network My Combat Channel, serving as a reporter and news correspondent for the network’s various programs. She also ventured into hosting podcasts, and helped create Man Seeks Adventure, which focuses on travel and lifestyle. She also manages a blog called On the Road, which concentrates on traveling the US, experiencing food and booze in various locations. The blog specifically focuses on her traveling as a solo woman, and her enthusiasm for cars, which many people found unusual. To this end, she has become an advocate for supporting younger women who are interested in automobiles, helping build their confidence and encouraging them to pursue their dreams.
Heather is single, and hasn’t been public about any romances she’s had in the past. She mainly resides on her own and meets up with friends from time to time. She is a big foodie, and loves buying fresh fruits to incorporate into her meals. Recently, she’s been living in Costa Rica and has found herself staying there since most parts of the world underwent lockdown due to growing concerns about the spread of the coronavirus. She has constantly been giving updates about her life during this time, narrating how even tourist areas have gone quiet, with locals refusing to go out due to the virus.
