Then: Born Tabitha Lee Sornberger, this VJ with a B.A. in journalism from New York University made her television debut on MTV in 1987 on ‘MTV News: The Week in Rock.’ She went onto become the face of MTV’s get out and vote initiative ‘Choose or Lose.’ Also, Soren was memorably featured in the Beastie Boys’ music video ‘(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (to Party).’

Now: Soren has largely left television behind, though she gamely appeared as herself in a 2012 episode of the quirky sketch comedy show ‘Portlandia.’ Nowadays, her focus is on photography. Soren’s photographs have been exhibited all over the U.S., and most recently at the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art in June of 2012.
