Te-see grew up in Chappaqua, New York, living the life of AMC’s “Madmen.” Her father, Jerry Bender, was a very successful commercial film editor on Madison Avenue in Mid-Town Manhattan. He traveled all over the world cutting film and bringing her back fashions from other countries. Te-see would visit him on set where the likes of Fred Quinn (Also known as Herman Munster) spoke about “Armstrong” flooring and Farrah Fawcett made “Virginia Slims” look sexy.
Te-see spent a lot of her youth roaming the streets of New York City looking at the constant evolution of beauty & fashion. Cheryl Tiegs, Christie Brinkley, and Janice Dickenson were just a few of the famous models who walked the popular Fifth Avenue. And if your belt didn’t match your outfit you were automatically referred to as a “Don’t” in Glamour Magazine.
Once she graduated from college, she moved right into the city where she felt completely at home. She was a hostess for a Mexican Restaurant and did some promotional modeling for 6 months. After winning a “Great Faces”contest in Mademoiselle Magazine, Te-see signed with Johnny & Fernando Casablanca’s “Petite Elite Agency.” They nicknamed her ‘lips’ and she was off and running. Her career has taken her to Japan, Italy, Chicago, and Miami. Te-see has appeared in magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Mademoiselle, Rolling Stone, Seventeen, Ladies Home Journal, Redbook as well as national television & ad campaigns for Smirnoff, Bombay Gin, Newport & Marlboro Cigarettes, Chloe Perfume, Sally Hansen Nails, McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Gallo Wine, Bally’s Health Club just to name a few. She finally touched down in Los Angeles in 1992, where she still resides with her family.
