As a native of South Florida, I have enjoyed living in the Palm Beach County area all my life. I like living close to the beach and ocean and am a fan of the natural native habitats.
I have a strong interest in the industry of special effects (SFX) with a specific focus on special effects makeup. Over the years I have developed a talent and passion for art, having an early start with pen & ink, and colors of every spectrum. Working with more defined drawings, paintings, and sketches, I realized that I had a true interest in how colors can be manipulated into countless shades.
My work at Party City, which began when I was 16, gave me a great opportunity to explore my interest further as well as learning how to interact effectively with the public. Halloween has become my favorite holiday and customers who had a need for guidance in special effects makeup were my favorites. I liked being able to suggest different kits and colorings along with appropriate accessories to complete their desired look.
An early fan of horror movies, I have followed that genre (Tom Savini, Ve Neill, Rick Baker, Michael Westmore) for a long time. Any 80’s Horror flicks are a guilty pleasure because that’s when special effects makeup really entered the movie genre, making nightmares come to life and scaring people out of their skin (pun intended) is just something I love to do. A dedicated follower of Face Off, I enjoy watching the creativity unfold as contestants craft their challenges. Taking a mystical creature from a fantasy planet beyond our world and bringing it to life is something that I want to do. I believe this is well within my expertise.

Aside from my retail work, I enjoy cooking, art and comparing my past makeups with techniques I use now.
