Rock n' Roll meets Pin-Up. This look was inspired by her wedding theme, personality, and her jet black & white wedding gown. She wanted dramatic eye makeup with plump, pin-up style red lips. I gave her pin-up curls and added decorative pins to give her hair some flair...Read More
We are all facing brighter days ahead as spring brings life back into the world. Spring is the season to celebrate new beginnings, growth, positive energy - and it has arrived at the perfect time in my life. Although it has been a long, frigid winter, I'm happy to say I accomplished a great deal more than hibernating in my PJs drinking hot coca. During those snowy winter days I was working my butt of at Empire Beauty School in their Educators Program. I'm happy to announce I am now a licensed Cosmetologist Educator...Read More
As some of you may know, I have made the decision to go back to school to teach what I love doing most - hair and makeup! I'm in training to become a licensed teacher in the state of PA at Empire Beauty School.
The students inspire me not only to share my experiences but to help guide those who want to succeed in this industry. I want them to succeed, to have passion, and to be inspired - and I believe I can help the do it!
This degree will be a stepping stone in my carrier, I would love to educate for some of my favorite companies such as L'Oreal Professional, Paul Mitchell, Vidal Sassoon, and Sojourn. Fashion is a part of who I am, modeling and being a stylist are two things I love and will continue to do.
Keep a look out for my latest shoot I did for a California Wine Company!

What a difference a year makes. As if going to Venice to shoot my first fashion video wasn't enough, I walked the runway at Nolcha Fashion week for Nina Athanasiou. This year, Nolcha was a bit different. Nina showcased a fashion video I co-starred in with James Gallagher on a jumbo screen, which was the back drop during the fashion show. I was third in line so I was able to see the video. It blew my mind that I was looking at myself. The whole team did an exceptional job shooting and producing it. Seeing myself up there excited me and pumped me up to walk the runway. It was an amazing experience, I came through strong. Have a look at some of the photos of the show below. If you have not had a chance to view the Venice video, it's called "Senza Cuore" by Nina Athanasiou.

It took thousands of miles and many sleepless hours to get here, but when my foot touches the damp road, all is forgotten. My heart flutters. Venice. It doesn't matter that it's pouring rain; I am engulfed in a serenade of light, turquoise water, and beauty. I'm struck with the realization that Venice is not a city. It's a feeling. The kind of feeling that settles deep into your heart and refuses to leave. It's indefinable; it's living life in a way I never new existed. ..Read More
