Macenstein’s “Mac Chick of the Month” (June 2009): Irina Voronina
Welcome to Macenstein‘s “Mac Chick of the Month”. Each month we feature a different die-hard, Mac-loving girl who is (almost) as well designed as the Apple products they love. This month we present you with the lovely Irina Voronina, a tech-obsessed actress/model from Hollywood California, who just happens to be a die-hard Mac Chick!
Originally from Russia, Irina came to the US 8 years ago to become Playboy’s Miss January 2001. Irina’s career had soon taken off, she graced on many magazine covers and as of recent crossed over from modeling to the big screen. We’ve seen her in such films as “Reno 911: Miami!”, “Balls Of Fury”, “Epic Movie”, TV series “Saul Of the Mole Men” and “Supreme Court Of Comedy”. Her most recent films “The Casino Job” and “Strike” just came out on DVD as well.
“Growing up in Russia I didn’t know anything about Apple computers”, says Irina. “I was a straight “A” student in school, but I was always terrified of PC computers, because they would freeze on me on every test and I would end up with an “F”…”
“In 2001 I got a G3 iBook as a Birthday gift and my life has never been the same since! I was amazed at how user friendly my little Apple computer was, and most importantly how reliable! I fulled around with iPhoto and iMovie for a few months, but it didn’t me take long to learn in Photoshop, and Final Cut.”
“Now I am very proficient in CS4, I retouch all of my photos, create magazine lay outs, update my website all by myself. I just love my independence, where I am able to do everything in-house, without having to call any favors or having to pay $50 to take a blemish out.”
“I can now call myself a complete Apple junkie with pride! I can not imagine where I would be without my Mac! I’ve been very happy with a Mac Book Pro with 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, but thinking about soon upgrading it to a newer model.”
