I Got Into Makeup by Accident...
But I got into teaching makeup by purpose.

I want to make your career journey just a teensy bit easier

I literally became a makeup artist because I had friends at UCLA film school and one of their professors suggested that I was good at makeup and I should look into as a career. That was it. Sure I liked makeup, but I came from an academic family of writers, musicians, etc.

Once I had my first little taste of what it would be like to do makeup professionally, I loved it.

But boy did I make a lot of mistakes on the way. Lots of bad “photoshoots”, wack “jobs”, and dead-end “connections” in my early career days. With a little bit of guidance, I figured out that it was my artistry that was going to elevate me above the fray. From that point it was ON.

it is possible to work in this industry without slogging through endless low-pay, dead end gigs

Let’s elevate your artistry so you can just high jump over all of that, and land on the path to the career you really want.

The more you know about the Art and Craft of Makeup, the easier it is to achieve a lasting career

I can’t promise anyone a 6-figure career in their first (or fifth) year of working but I can show you the path to working on meaningful projects that build into a real career not just a series of random gigs.
Elevated artistry and presentation will lift you above the fray and enable you to consistently land real jobs, with real clients, at real rates.
