Dana Hamm Biography

A native of Sanford, North Carolina, Dana Hamm was born to an entrepreneur father and ex-beauty queen mother, on August 31, 1979. During her childhood, Hamm attended private schools in her area and was quite a tomboy. She preferred to fish, ride her BMX bike and horseback ride rather than play with dolls or chase boys.

Hamm matured into a striking young woman and excelled in high school, receiving top grades in fine arts, English and science. After graduating, she attended Campbell University and majored in Psychiatric Social Work. During her college days, Hamm became hooked on fitness training and devoted as much time to working out as she did to her schoolwork.

Hamm hired personal fitness guru James Brown (no relation to the Godfather of Soul) to help her out. After Hamm received her bachelor's degree, her workouts became more intense, as Brown put her on a stringent diet plan and daily gym routine.

The payoff began only months later, when Hamm began shopping around for modeling work through an agent. Her start was slow, but she knew that all it took was one big break to establish herself. This came one year after she began training, when MuscleMag International put her on the cover.

In 2000, Hamm was able to network her way to a better career. She began dealing with Warner Brothers, who then led her to the Michael Scott Company for guidance. A partnership was soon formed between Hamm and Scott, a photographer and quasi-agent, and the relationship turned out to be quite fruitful. Hamm got exposure almost immediately, as she landed an eight-page pictorial in Pump magazine, and was then featured in Muscular Development two months in a row.

Soon, Hamm was doing 10-, 20- and even 40-page spreads in fitness magazines across America. Top publications like Ultimate Athlete, American Curves, Planet Muscle, and Stun gave Hamm more individual pictorials than any other fitness model ever. Soon, she began making calendars and public appearances to supplement her income. Sexy posters of Dana are a hot online item as well.

This exotic babe has also done some mainstream work; she made an appearance as a swimsuit model at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival and in Miami. In 2003's Ultimate Bikini contest (a popular online bikini contest), Dana Hamm won $2,000 in cash and prizes, further proving her reputation as a babe with a killer body.

Hamm is not limiting herself to modeling and magazines either. She has hopes of becoming an actress and continues to expand her empire, selling an array of Hamm memorabilia on her website.
