My life revolves around art. It always has. Constantly seeking new ways to create and pursue happiness eventually led me to makeup artistry.
I didn't figure it out for a long time. I plucked my eyebrows into matchsticks. I poked my best friend in the eye countless times. I figured I would never get beyond those outdated, theatrical blue eye shadows and red lipsticks.
But sometime in college, I discovered a knack and a joy. My friends were willing victims. And between my acting degree and my post-college years living in NYC, I developed a fascination and love for special effects. I was relatively proficient at drawing and painting, so I thought, "Maybe it's just like drawing...but on my face." To this day, I always thank my clients for letting me play with them and "doodle" on their faces.
My small reputation in New York got me in the door with a few colleagues when I moved to Los Angeles, where I became the resident makeup artist among my budding friend group. I'm forever grateful.
I work primarily with short films, internet branded content, and music videos, and also specialize in men's makeup and practical SFX.
I am a professional actor, makeup artist, and visual artist, and I am beyond lucky to be building a career around happiness.
