I am a fresh college graduate trying to find out where I am going in this world. I love the digital and traditional arts, and my best skills are in painting, photography and various forms of digital editing (film, photography, animation). In the past I was also have been involved in theatre: acting, stagecraft, makeup, and costumes. Cosplay is a favorite hobby of mine. I have discovered a love of special effects makeup- and am pondering if I have a future in it. I have a lot of options in front of me, and I am trying to figure out where my future lies.
I have a BA in Art with a Japanese minor.
Aside from my 'normal' job going on 7 years, I have worked at a Halloween Haunt for 5 years. I did 2 years as an actor- 1st year as 'Nurse Die' and 2nd as 'Asylum Alice'.
My 3rd year back (2008) I was given a special effects makeup position where I really learned some new skills. 2009 gave me a chance to get back into the swing of things- it was a good refresher and great practice. As voted by the actors, I received the award for Best Makeup Artist 2009- I would like to think I have potential, however, I do have a lot to learn. 2010 I focused on getting my speed to skill ratio set, our job doesn't allow us much time! I look forward to a time where TIME itself won't be the driving factor that dictates the makeup. 10 minute intervals are not very exciting. I will say that now I can in 10 minutes what used to take me 45. I would also like to announce that this year I won the award for Best Makeup artist again!

If anyone has questions or comments feel free to leave them here and I will see them... eventually. Better yet, I log into my deviantART page at least weekly, so that would be your best bet.
