I am a Licensed Cosmetologist, Makeup Artist, costume, wig and jewelry designer who graduated Magna Cum Laude from Emerson College with a BFA in Costume Design and a specialty in Wigs and Makeup.
I mainly work in theatre and opera but also specialize in drag and beauty makeup for special occasions such as weddings and Bat Mitzvahs, head shots, fashion and print work.
I love to craft and create specialized millinery work such as headpieces and masks for original characters.
