Having been in the hairdressing industry since 2002 and as a makeup artist since 2008 I have enjoyed some amazing opportunities and experiences spanning fashion, photography, television, music and film.
Whether doing beauty or catalogue work, styling for a music video, or working on a TV show or feature film, I love the challenges and variety of my job.
Whenever I do hair or makeup I get excited by the chance to work with someone to help them present at their very best as each person offers a unique "canvas" on which to create a masterpiece.
You may have seen my work if you've watched RocKwiz on SBS over the past four years or so or Studio At The Memo on Foxtel or seen the 2015 feature film Spin Out.
My hair and makeup has featured in award-winning photographs by Damien Bowerman and Mandarine Montgomery - in fact Mandarine was named 2013 Australian Professional Portrait Photographer of the Year while Damien was runner-up, both using images for which I had done the hair and makeup.
Damien also won two gold awards at the 2013 AIPP Awards with other images I had worked on, while one of his images for which I did complete styling - hair, makeup and costume - helped him win Portrait Photographer of the Year at the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) Awards with a perfect score of 100 points.
