I'm a real California native. Born in Granada Hills and raised in Santa Clarita. I graduated from Saugus High School in 1989 and yes I did work at Six Flags Magic Mountain for over 6 years.
I grew up in the beauty industry. My grandfather was a beauty and barber supplier for over 35 years. My first makeup jobs were working with the local modeling school and doing photo shoots for dance studios. Eventually I realized I needed some formal training.
I attended Newberry School of Beauty in Granada Hills and completed the esthetician program in 1993. In 1994, I advanced my makeup skills by training with Yolanda Halston, creator and founder of Classified Cosmetics Era Spray On Foundation. With her as my mentor, I really learned to master my craft and I gained a significant amount of experience working on my first photo shoots and films.
I have been lucky to work every aspect of the beauty industry - retail, film & television, photography, spa and salon, and dermatology.
I have been doing eyelash extensions since 2004.
In 2012, I received my cosmetology license and have added hair to the range of services I offer.
In 2015, I completed the six week comprehensive hair cutting program at the Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, California.
My makeup work has been featured in many magazines such FHM (France), Fitness Magazine, Razor, and Entertainment Weekly.
