Some people were born with natural abilities, and some had to learn them. I can’t quite say that I was born into being an entrepreneur but I know that it felt right. I started my passion as a pre-teen who did makeovers for my friends and family. As I started to grow, the passion I had for it grew as well. I went on to receive degrees at the Fashion Institute for Design and Merchandising ( FIDM) in San Francisco and Make-Up Designory ( MUD) in Toluca Lake, specializing in fashion, editorial, bridal and stage makeup.
Over the years, I have worked as a model, took part in Fashion Shows, and also have had experience with Photography. I have been connected professionally to NARS and Bobbi Brown and I’ve also been a Stylist Instructor at John Robert Powers. All of which were invigorating experiences.
I believe that when you pair hard work with your passion that it will shine through your work. I am humbled and blessed to share that top wedding blogs such as Style My Pretty, The Knot and magazines like BRIDE’s have featured my work, just to name a few.
Beyond my own work, I believe that teaching others to encompass a greater passion for the hair and makeup is also my purpose in life. I am proud to share that I founded A-List Makeup, a leading Hair and Makeup group in the San Francisco, Bay Area. Here is where I continue to train some of the most talented artists in the fashion and beauty industry. I hope you enjoy looking through my portfolio and understand why I see beauty the way that I do.
