Katie Chonacas – Achievement by Design

Omnipresence: a trait of deities, but sometimes theistic traits fall upon mortals. There are few women in the entertainment industry today who have achieved what Katie Chonacas has at such a young age: accomplished actress, model, singer, film producer, painter, poet, and philanthropist. From producing films starring A-list actors like Forrest Whitaker, to touring Spain and South Africa with megastar 50 Cent, and appearing in top television series such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Katie Chonacas is multi-talented in nearly every facet of the industry – her omnipresence is undisputed; her talent is hexagonal.

Born and raised in Detroit, Katie always had star power in her veins. Katie quickly became known for her fresh-faced, undeniable beauty and went on to book jobs with top brands such as PacSun, Hurley, BCBG, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Amo Girls, T-Mobile, Tod’s, Roger Vivier, Sketchers, K-Swiss, Diesel, Circa, and Merle Norman among others. Her ads went on to land her modeling jobs with magazines as well, including Seventeen, Allure, Maxim, Kurv Magazine, Teen Vogue, 944, Stuff, YRB, Angelino, Best Body and Giant Magazine. Her career soared to new heights, as she crossed over into international recognition modeling for Sun Silk hair care products in Europe and Lux hair care products in Japan, all while becoming the face of luxury brand Oliver Peoples, Mosley Tribes and Taryn Rose shoes and handbags in the United States. Her modeling career soon took her to Los Angeles, where she moved full-time and found a true passion for acting.

Her crossover from modeling to acting was seamless, landing roles on top television series such as CBS’s CSI: New York and FX Network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. She also excelled in film as she booked supporting roles in films such as Major Movie Star starring Jessica Simpson and The Code as starring Morgan Freeman and Antonio Banderas. She also shared a passionate scene with Nicolas Cage in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans directed by Werner Herzog.

After dominating in modeling, appearing on television, and working with top actors in film, Katie decided to journey into her love for music; an affair dating back to her teenage years in the Detroit music scene. She landed a deal with 50 Cent and G-Unit, and toured with the superstars throughout Spain and South Africa. Soon after, Katie released her first single, “SO N2 U” which was licensed to the film Lure and also used on MTV’s The Real World.

In her spare time, Katie loves to continue pursuing creative avenues as an avid painter. She is also known for her philanthropy, as she supports organizations such as Children International, Team in Training, Tap Project, Eva’s Heroes, The Brightest Star Foundation, and Love Cures Cancer. She has also created and produced two PSAs: one for Pantene Pro V where she donated eight inches of her hair, and the other for the BP Oil Spill. In the summer of 2010 she worked with social-justice television network, Halogen TV on their original TV program Noble Exchange.

Katie has relocated to New York City to focus on her acting endeavors, while still finding plenty of work in the other five sides of her polygonal talent structure, for she knows no other way than the way of omnipresence.
