My favorite class in school was Art. I have always seen the world with a colored pencil, felt-tip marker or paintbrush in my hand.
I grew up on Long Island and later attended Penn State University, where I earned degrees in Public Relations and Business. After graduation, I honed my creative skills in the fashion industry for over 10 years, working for some of the world’s leading designer brands, including Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. It was during this time that my passion for fashion grew into a love of makeup design.
After requests from my friends and family to do their makeup for weddings and special events became regular occurrences, I decided to pursue a career as a makeup artist. I attended makeup school in Manhattan, graduating with a certificate in makeup artistry.
I've been asked to work on a number of prestigious beauty events in NYC, including NY Fashion Week, where I designed runway looks for some of fashion's leading brands.
I currently live in Manhattan with my husband, Elliot.
