About Me

Hello!  Thanks for viewing my MM page.
I'm an experienced freelance makeup artist/hair stylist, and I just relocated back to Chicago from Portland, OR.  I loved my time in Portland and will be back again from time to time, but it is great to be back in Chicago!

I am interested in meeting with new phtographers and models.  I am interested in testing, depending on the project. I am available for work on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.  I am looking to rebuild my book and will be available for any interesting fashion/beauty but, would love to do some life style and Bridal shoots in particular.  Please message me with any info on upcoming shoots.   

The rest of the week you can find me at Gordon Aveda Salon, in Wilmette in the Edens Plaza(Lake and Skokie) as a Master Stylist. I graduated from the Aveda Institute of Chicago in 2003, and was a color trainer and makeup trainer for many years Gordon Salon, with several locations in Chicago.   

Please contact me  thru MM  or
for my rates.

I am also available for bridal showers, engagement photos, weddings, etc...

I also have a facebook page:

I am currently accepting TFP/CD, depending on project.
Possible travel only with paid projects in the U.S(w/paid travel and lodging).

*Hair and makeup on all of the models shown in my pics are done by me(unless otherwise indicated in photo).
