Can you start off by telling us a little about yourself and how you got your start?

I went to makeup school about sixteen years ago. I started out in Chicago and worked for a cosmetic brand in retail. I continued to grow from there, working on weddings, parties, etc. I moved myself to New York City because I always admired fashion makeup. Thankfully through hard work and determination, I was able to manifest that.

While in NYC, I worked at Bryan Park, Lincoln Center, etc and did fashion week for about seven years, which was an incredible experience. I started working with an artist/singer in NYC, and the project brought me to LA.
