American Dreamin’: Debby “London” Coda [Special Interview]

americandreaminlogo1

Who better to follow Iggy Azalea for the “American Dreamin” series than another international hot blonde? Debby Coda is a British transplant who’s worked her way up the entertainment industry ladder in the United States through sheer determination and relentless passion. From her teenage years, Debby made her mark in London’s bustling club scene and one of her earliest claims to fame is starting the first ever “urban” night on European party island, Ibiza. You can currently find Debby living it up in Miami as CIROC’s Brand Ambassador, utilizing her marketing and promotional experience to take the vodka to new heights in the city’s tough and competitive nightclub and event scene. Still working closely with artists she formed strong relationships with during her tenure at Violator Management (including Soulja Boy and Busta Rhymes), Debby proves that an international hustle is tough to beat.
