Stef Z was born and raised on Long Island, NY, and from a very young age loved to challenge the status quo in an attempt to figure out why things worked the way they did. She also is a New York Jets fan.
After graduating with a BFA in design and photography from UNC- Greensboro, she packed up her Honda (“Whoopy!”), drove cross- country, and has been going back from NY to California ever since.
In 2007, Stef decided to go after a dream of designing a clothing line. With little funds, a big idea, a 500-watt halogen bulb, a darkroom built in her hallway, and a bathtub for making screens, Wet Cement was started. Within four years, Wet Cement became a multi-million dollar company. Wet Cement has been sold at Saks, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales and Nordstrom’s. After the success of the clothing line, Stef decided to branch out and begin something new. Completing her quest to travel to all 50 states in the US, Stef believes that getting out in the world experiencing life and interacting with people is the best form of education.
For the past 3 years she has been following her new and so far most rewarding career as a host. She partically likes talking about sports and her favorite team the New York Jets, but you can get her to talk about almost anything.
You can catch Stef hosting on Afterbuzz TV where she has covers a Monday Night Football Show with special Playoff and Super Bowl editions as well as some primetime television shows like How To Get Away With Murder, State of Affairs, and Project Runway. She also currently hosts a bi-weekly sports show called The Morning Score. She brings her knowledge of sports, fashion, travel and the arts to the table to be able to talk with her guests about what interests them the most. As an adult, she continues to have a spirit that will push boundaries, brings subjects into a new light and bring unlikely characters together.
