I grew up in Chicago, IL. Here, I attended art school at Columbia College of Chicago majoring in fashion design and fashion runway production. After leaving Columbia, I went on to get my makeup artist license and my cosmetology license at AIC (Aveda Institute of Chicago), where although my love for hair cutting and styling wasn't apparent, my love my nails was. Since moving to Hollywood, California in the summer of 2010, I've since created a network of models and become friends with people in the entertainment industry. Doing my own nails, and nails of friends with expertise designs and pictures using small tools, or Konad Nail Stamping (www.konadusa.com), I've come to learn that it really is what I have a passion for. I would like to take this to the next level by showcasing my photos in a portfolio here in hopes that other people will become interested in my work.
