Drawn at a young age to the exciting energy of my father’s salon, I found an innate urge to create beautiful work with an original edge. I recognized the immediate impact of what a great color, style or haircut can do to someones life and confidence. It was exciting and I wanted to be a part of it; helping clients look and feel their best!
After graduating from College, I decided to bring my career to the next level by immersing myself into the Hair Industry. I began traveling to Europe and throughout the United States, learning and working with diverse artists, which immediately brought out a distinct talent of my own. I then moved to Brooklyn and found myself delving deeper into Fashion Set Styling, Bridal styling and Hair Coloring. I began training with and continue to train with Vidal Sassoon and Wella Hair Color Academy.
Throughout my experience and studies of hair I found a passion in bridal and special event styling and hair coloring and cutting. I then created and trademarked a unique technique utilized for color corrections, transformations and other such processes called Ombrélage.
All of these aspects of my life, studies and experiences continuously inspire me and challenge me to reach new levels of my talent .
