I’ve had a fascination with makeup since I was a little girl. Makeup amazed me in that it could bring about a transformation in not just my physical appearance but also my attitude and confidence. I followed my childhood dream and got a degree in marine biology but after graduating, working and then switching through a number of career fields, I still felt dissatisfied. It wasn’t until I started working in the beauty industry that I truly felt I had found my passion.
Since realizing that, I’ve graduated from Cosmix School of Makeup Artistry, become a licensed Facial Specialist and received hairstyling education from hairstylists including Johnny Lavoy, Linh Nguyen and Jacqui Davis. I’ve worked in a variety of industry fields including advertising, fashion, editorial, live events and runway. I also have experience working in motion for film, TV, video, broadcst and commercial productions. My client list includes Tiger Woods, Sony – Latin America, Amazon Video, Finish Line, Viacomm, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the National Association of Broadcasters, FUSE TV, CNN Latino, Harvard Business Review, The Kimpton Hotel Group, United Way, Veuve Clicquot, Belk, MaxMara, Aeropostale, The Cato Corporation and Alfred Angelo.
I currently live in Los Angeles with my hubby and two black cats, Kimchi & Gogi.
