I traded in my military career to follow my true passion of makeup artistry in 2014. As a true self-taught artist, I quickly proved myself in a super-competitive wedding and film industry in Monterey, California and then moved a short year and a half later to Augusta, Georgia.
In Augusta, I worked almost exclusively with studio photographers and honed in on my 4k and beauty makeup skills. A short nine months after moving to Augusta, our family moved to Wiesbaden, Germany, where we've been ever since.
It's here in Germany where I've honed my makeup skills for international corporate campaigns, high-brow destination weddings, and been able to learn from some of the most amazing artists in the world.
Since opening my business in 2014, I've learned from some of the industry's best, to include: Sonia Roselli, founder of Glossible and Sonia Roselli Beauty; Terri Tomlinson, founder of the Flesh Toned Color Wheel and, and Tara Buenostro, Creative Director of (former) Kat Von D Beauty.
Have Makeup, Will Travel.
Since opening my business in 2014, I've been incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to travel for my clients across Europe and North America for branding photoshoots, corporate campaigns, and destination weddings.
Your satisfaction is my top-priority every time and the right makeup application can make or break how you feel at and during the special events of your life.
So whether you want to learn how to wear makeup or simply have your makeup done for you, it doesn’t matter. What matters is feeling like the most handsome or most beautiful person in the room when it matters.
Don't take my words for granted!
Aside from my works appearing in various publications, high-brow events, and international marketing campaigns, I am one of 100 entrepreneurs On The Rise for 2019, and one of the top 20 service providers in the creative industry world-wide.
Hailing from Tucson, Arizona and having spent every summer of my child/teenage years on the sunny shores of California, and like a true West Coaster, I like to think that I take my life seriously, but not myself.
Although I still love social events & gatherings, I'm starting to enjoy my quiet time and small group settings more! It's been such an interesting, natural progression.
Although it seems like a past life already, I used to serve in Active Duty, Reserves, and am now serving as a military spouse. As a matter of fact, I love speaking to groups of all sizes about my transition from military officer to makeup artist.
I'm an unapologetic lover of culture & languages. Born in the USA, Persian & German parents, Brazilian at heart, and Mexican by marriage -- this beautiful world we live in never ceases to amaze me.
I try to run my business as sustainably as possible. My entire client booking process can be done online. My used mascara wands go straight to Wands For Wildlife. I also choose to support brands with sustainable packaging and recycling programs.
I prefer experiences over things, real life relationships over social media numbers, local cafes over mega-chains, artisan little things over mass-produced everythings.
