Work Experience in Corporate Shoots, Print, TV and Film.
My first jobs were in TV and Video production in NYC. I chose to become a Makeup artist for the film industry to earn a living while I was studying Dance at Mary Mount Manhattan College. NYC was and still is, the best place to go, for being involved in the arts and I loved every minute of the time I spent there before returning to my home state of AZ.
Several production companies came over to AZ from CA to shoot their features and brought their own Makeup/Hair crew with them. In order to be involved. I began offering the support service of "On-Location" Massage and Facials on set and at hosting hotels for the films Jerry MaQuire, Broken Arrow, Low Down Dirty Shame and Black Cloud. When not doing Massage and Facials as a side line in the industry, I have been doing Makeup/Hair for Corporate gigs, Commercials, Videos, Satellite, etc., and added a second location in Idaho in the late 90's where I have done print, film, etc., and studied with Paul Castro and many other masters of the industry.
It is always such a pleasure for me to be asked to work on productions shooting in AZ and ID as well as traveling to other states where there is work to be done! I guess the simplest thing to say about my life is that I love being a team member working on projects that have success written all over them.
I have been in the industry since 1980.
