To start, my name is Adrian Brett, I’ve loved and wanted to be apart of this industry since I was a little girl…I think I get it from my dad mostly, he’s been performing in live theater ever since I can remember…He even sang for the King and Queen of Swaziland…..My entire family has always been into the arts; we have all taken ballet, gymnastics, acting, modeled and so on….you will see all of my brothers and sisters in my portfolio….
I believe that you fight for what you want…and I’ve been fighting to be in this industry since I was 16. I was a sophomore in high school when i decided to get my cosmetology license. .…and it was that summer that i go my first break!
I was on a photo shoots in North Carolina (I was a model)….I met a wonderful hair stylist and makeup artist named Karen Cleary. I was lucky that she liked me and let me spend my free time on the set with her….she told me all about what she did, who she’s met, where she’s been, and where she was going…….I told here to take me with her!
We stayed in contact for about 2 years before we lost communication, and figured I would just have to do it all on my own, like Karen did- make something from nothing! and that was that, until she called.
She said that she had been trying to get a hold of me for months! And asked me what I was doing for the next year, “Nothing, I just quit college…literally, I decided today that I’m not coming back…. ”.
That’s when I got my first real job, as the Hair Stylist for Moda Modeling Agency in Dallas, Texas. I was 18, though I told the owner as Karen told me, “I’m 21”….…..hahaha!
Now I am actually 21 and i can't believe some of the things i have been able to experience- i owe it all to Karen. Thank You!
