Who i am

About Me

I am a makeup artist and educator based in Baltimore, Maryland. I've been in the makeup industry for over 10 years. My goal is to give anyone that sits in my chair the full metamorphosis experience even if I apply just a little makeup to enhance their beauty. I call that experience the Butterfly Effect.

Experience & Education

Makeup Artist


I run my own brand and have worked with brides, film actors, music artists, stage performers, runway models, fashion designers and photographers to bring their artistic visions to life. My latest project was being the key makeup artist on a soon to be leased short film, The Assignment. I am also a makeup and skincare educator who have taught at Empire Beauty School and Aveda Institute Maryland.
