I am a New York City based Makeup Artist and have been working in the industry for the past 15 years. I have always had a love of drawing and painting, studying Fine Arts in college, and have been lucky enough to transform that passion into a successful career.
I started working on Independent Films after graduating college and really enjoyed honing my skills on lower budget jobs. After working for a year, I went out to Los Angeles to study makeup and special effects at Joe Blasco Makeup Academy. I spent five months learning everything from basic beauty to prosthetics and graduated at the top of my class. Returning to New York, I passed the Local 798 practical exam and have been an active member since. In 2005 I started working in television and won a Daytime Emmy Award for my work on "All My Children." Since leaving the show, I have department headed TV programs such as "Law and Order: SVU," "Lipstick Jungle," "In Treatment," and "Damages."
Along the way I have worked on many photo shoots, press junckets, and celebrity appearances.
I love doing makeup and feel very lucky to have met great talent along the way and have them trust me to make them look their absolute best.
