I am a Makeup Artist originally from Northern California. 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 master makeup course offered at Cinema Makeup School.
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: The Jim Henson Company, Monsterworks66, A Band Apart, Famous Monsters of Filmland Magazine, Blumhouse Productions, Nintendo, Disney, and Gearbox. I have worked on Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Avengers: Endgame, and Avengers: Infinity War at Legacy Effects creating makeup appliances for Drax the Destroyer and most recently worked on Season 2 of The Mandalorian creating prosthetic makeup appliances.
I now live in Burbank, CA and do freelance makeup and effects for films.
