I am a Makeup Artist originally from Monterey, CA. I attended and graduated from Columbia College Hollywood, a film school in Los Angeles, where I worked with many talented filmmakers. During college, I received a grant from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences to work at Lawrence Bender Productions, aka A Band Apart (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill) as an Intern. After receiving my Bachelor's Degree in film production, I completed the most intensive course offered at Cinema Makeup School, one of the world's best schools for makeup effects.
Immediately after graduating, I traveled to the snowy mountains of Utah to take on and create all the effects and makeup on Brandon Scullion's chilling horror feature "Live In Fear".
Over the years, I have worked with many notable production companies, studios and individuals including: Monsterworks66, The Living Dead Girlz, Scream Team Productions, Bill Munns, A Band Apart, Famous Monsters of Filmland Magazine, Blumhouse Productions, Nintendo, Paul Sorvino and Comedian Eddie Ifft. I also worked as a Makeup PA on American Horror Story: Hotel and Gardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 through Legacy Effects.
I now live in Burbank, CA and do freelance makeup and effects for films.
