Born Vanessa Young, she first joined MTV in 1988 on a temporary assignment at the broadcaster's Camden studios in London, eventually becoming a production assistant on the MTV rock show, "Metal Hammer" and then "Headbangers Ball",[1] where she became the show's assistant producer. In 1990, she replaced German VJ Kristiane Backer, having presented her first tour report - a review of a London Astoria performance by American band OverKill. As well as seven years presenting "Headbangers' Ball", she also inspired and wrote the foreword to a "Headbangers' Ball" book, Chaos AD - Rock in the Nineties, written by Kerrang! magazine freelance Steve Beebee, published by Simon & Schuster in 1997.[2] As a freelance TV producer, she also directed a Motörhead video in 2001.[1][3]
