After spending nearly a decade in the beauty and cosmetics industry, I found myself at a crossroads. While I had finally landed my dream job with a renowned cosmetics brand and arrived at a place in my career where I was lead artist for photoshoots and events like New York Fashion Week,
I started to realize that women and young girls, like my daughter were being spoon fed photoshopped images of women that conveyed unrealistic standards of beauty. Uninspired and underwhelmed by this facet of the biz,
I started doing the long, hard work of turning inward to discover what true, beauty, health, and wellness means. Since then, I have dedicated my life and my work to challenging traditional standards of beauty and helping clients gain a greater sense of confidence and wellbeing.
In addition to being lit up and creatively inspired by enhancing someone's natural beauty through the sacred art of cosmetic tattooing, I have a shared the practices of Yoga and Reiki in workshops, classes, schools, and 1-on-1 in Denver, NYC, LA, and at Burning Man.
When I’m not helping individuals look and feel more confident, you'll most likely find me working along side my partner on a real estate venture, developing a new elixir for my apothecary line, in my garden, or discovering new music.
