About Me

As a creative professional with comprehensive design experience in the Special Effects/Makeup Artistry/Styling and Fine Art industry, I have learned that the best way to achieve success was to keep my client’s best interest in mind. Designs and inventive looks based on reliability, quality, and service, along with a positive attitude, an aptitude for strategic design and planning, and the ability to adapt quickly to new ideas and situations allows me to achieve consistent and significant successes in the film and tv industry.

Within five years in the film,and fine art industry, I have developed strong make-up, special effects, fine art, design and fabrication skills that have enabled me to build a reputation for dependable, quality, imaginative pieces and customer service on set and off. I thrive on helping others with my unique, creative skills and I look forward to new opportunities to build positive customer relationships every day.

I believe that as a driven, diligent, creative professional working for your event or production, my optimistic energy, ability to think outside the box, inventive skills, make-up, fx, painting abilities, and trained eye for realistic recreation will make a positive contribution.

I am equally comfortable working independently as well as collaboratively as part of a team. I have always been able to establish and maintain excellent relationships with clients and coworkers at all levels. My professional skills include:

• Varied artist: Beauty Make-Up Artist, Stylist, and Special Effects Artist, Sketch Artist, Fine Artist. A jack of all trades!

• Realistic detailing. Believable work. An eye for realism.

• Works well under stress. Works until it's done right, the way you want it.

• A fluent and articulate communicator, flexible and responsive. Willing to learn and listen.

• A self directed, goal oriented doer.

• Proficient with talent and extras. Respectful.

• Professional, efficient and kind demeanor with a passion for creative work.

I would welcome the chance to provide you with additional information. I am available for a personal interview and portfolio review at your convenience.
