Amy Markham is an American model and television personality. She currently lives in Los Angeles, CA.

Early life[edit]

The daughter of an American father in the U.S. Army and a Korean mother, Markham was born in Seoul, South Korea.[1] Her childhood was spent in Babenhausen, Germany, but due to her father's military duty, she was an "army brat" living all over.[2][3] She spent the lengthiest amount of time in Killeen, Texas, which she considers her home town.[4]

Modeling career[edit]

Markham first began modeling in 2010, working in the Japanese import automotive scene as a print and spokesmodel for several companies, magazines and race events, including the Xtreme Drift Circuit Racing Series (a national drifting competition), Performance Auto and Sound Magazine and Ace Custom Steering.[5][6][7][8] Her first mainstream magazine shoot was with Rukus magazine in the USA.[9] Following its publication, she has appeared in a number of other international publications, including Vogue, Maxim, FHM, GQ, Esquire and Gentleman.[10][11][12][13] In 2013, she was named FHM Magazine's Most Wanted Model.[14]

Broadcasting career[edit]

In 2011, Markham became a host for Bite Me TV.[15] A series exclusive to the web, Bite Me TV was broken into four series - Car Culture, Quick Bite!, Field Trippin and Bite Me! - the MAN cooking show.[16] The show won an award for Outstanding Travel, Talk and Lifestyle Series at the 2011 LAWEBFEST.[17][18] She went on to appear in the series Promo Girls on Telemundo.[19] She has also made TV appearances for Anything That Rolls, a car-focused series on Channel 39 in Houston, TX.[20][21]
