Born and raised in Southern California, I always felt like I was an artist in some way. I discovered my passion for the beauty world while serving in the US Navy. Through my own personal makeover, I realized how wonderful it felt to take care of myself. Now, 17 years later, many classes, countless talented mentors, the joy of being a Brazilian Professionals National Educator since 2016 and growing roots in my private studio in West Hollywood for the last 9 1/2 years, I continue my mission to teach something new to anyone who sits in my chair. My goal is for you to feel confident about who you are and how the world sees you. All while helping you love your hair. Whether you're an artist or a caregiver. Bringing your inner beauty and funk to the outside for everyone to enjoy is my passion. Changing the world one head at a time is my goal!
