I began my career in cosmetics with Chanel at Nordstrom in 2006. Soon after graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising with a degree in Visual Communication, I transferred to the Visual Department at The Farmers Market. While working at the Grove I also had the opportunity to work on special events with many designers and celebrities.
Inspired, I took my first steps into the film industry. While working side by side with established makeup artists on set I came to the realization that makeup, wardrobe, and hair are inextricably linked, all coming together to create a whole picture. Having experience now in makeup and wardrobe, it was clear my path would take me next to the Aveda Institute Los Angeles cosmetology program.
While a student, I received an honorable mention in the Pro Beauty Association’s Beacon competition, earning an invitation to their annual awards celebration and seminar. To me this felt like the industry’s red carpet event, and I knew I needed to come back. To that end I expanded my makeup career as a Laura Mercier representative, and, once licensed, pursued a mentorship with the amazing Margeaux Hamrock of HAUS hair society. Margeaux is an inspiration who loves living and working outside the box.
My skills in design, wardrobe styling, trend forecasting, lighting, and beauty, along with the ability to lead innovative and creative design concepts, have all played a part in my accomplishments. Together with Mane Fixation's guidance I am on my way to my final goal: becoming a true wildcard of all trades.
