How and why did you start doing hair?

My interest sparked at a young age when I started cutting my Barbie's hair. Despite the fact that my initial endeavors left her with no hair most of the time, my budding passion continued into high-school and my early twenties as I graduated from Barbie's to real-life humans when my friends began to trust me to experiment on their hair. I was untrained, and obviously didn't know about the magic of toners or color theory, but between my own experimentation and being on the receiving end of having a great stylist, the foundation was set and I started to realize that a stylist's job is really creative and challenging. Until that that point, I had worked some reception jobs and managed an online store, but I knew it wasn't my calling, so, at 24, I started beauty school. It was the best decision I have ever made! Most of the time it doesn't feel like I'm working, I get to be creative, and I get to have all the tattoos I want.

If you could do hair for any famous person, living or dead, whom would it be?

Madonna. Not because she is my favorite artist, but she would keep me on my toes by always changing it up!

Who is your personal style icon?

Goldie Hawn

If you could go back in time and live in any time period, in which period would you choose to live?

The 80's because big hair was always acceptable.

If you were an alcoholic beverage, what would you be?

A Miami Vice - I'm a gemini and a extrovert / introvert.

If you could bring one album with you to a desert island, which would you bring?

This is going to sound cliche, but I would bring Abbey Road because it's very nostalgic for me and I will never get tired of listening.
