"My passion is helping the world see how beautiful you already are." That is my mission statement, my goal, the reason I do what I do.

I am a hairdresser and makeup artist with 7 years experience in the beauty industry as well as decades of personal experience in on-camera and onstage work. I know what it feels like to be on both sides of the brush! I have worked both in the salon and on location, and I have extended education in many fields: hair cutting and color, makeup artistry, extensions, texture alterations, wigs, even false facial hair! I am insatiably curious, so if its something new in this industry I want to know about it!

Over the years, I have come to realize what brings me the greatest joy in my work - something I like to call "You Moments. A "You Moment" is a pivotal point in your life that you never forget. The day you get married...your first fitness show....a photo shoot...the list goes on. It can really be any moment where you want to look and feel your best, and not even question that you are putting out the best representation of you possible. It enables you to relax and enjoy the experience, and when you are so comfortable in your own skin, you truly glow from within! There is nothing more fulfilling in my work than being part of those moments and celebrating with you. That is why I have launched - to help you and I connect and make the most of your defining moments!

I hope you enjoy your experience here - check out the "You" tab to see photos, videos, and read stories of the You Moments I have had the pleasure of being part of already. Browse through blog posts to see what I've been up to and catch some tutorials. And don't forget to go to the "Us" page to see how you and I can collaborate and bring your personal vision to life!
