What do you love about the industry?

Hairstyling is an artistry that transcends time and culture.  It’s also one of the most elegant and personal expressions of beauty.  While simultaneously being timeless, hair styling is an advancing industry.  I am extremely proud and honored to be apart of that progression.


Why did you decide to get into the industry?

I’ve always heard that if you love what you do, its never work.  I have never considered hair styling anything but a passion. From a very young age, I’ve been captivated and excited by styling hair.


Knowing that I help to positively influence my client’s lives, I feel I have fulfilled a lifelong attraction towards the styling industry.


What’s your personal style?

Personal styles are constantly evolving and should never be limiting.  I usually go with a classic and refined style, however, when the urge hits me, I like to spice things up and give myself a bit of edge.


Where do you find your inspiration?

Just getting to sit down and getting to know my clients provides me with endless amounts of inspiration.  As I get to appreciate my client’s unique tastes and styling preferences, I am inspired to create that perfect cut, color or style that complement their confidence and beauty.  Tastes and styles often evolve, and I am ever inspired to help my clients discover their own styling evolution.


What do you love to do in your free time?

I have a guilty pleasure for real-crime stories and TV shows.  Chances are if you name it, I’ve seen it!  I also love camping, traveling, and getting back home to New York to spend time with my family.


How do you stay motivated or current?

I place a big importance on staying current with modern looks, trends and developments within the styling industry.  To do so, I regularly attend live styling shows and events, take classes and seminars to keep familiar with new product lines and techniques, and keep my certifications fresh.
