     Truly, I am a generalist at heart. Color, styling, balayage, cutting, photography and altering in any way all appeal to me  equally. Even in the simplest form of just taking care of my guest by helping someone to feel their beauty or express themselves, I find great fulfillment behind the chair.

     This career path has never been a question to me. I started working in my first salon in my small hometown at sixteen and  moved to Colorado at eighteen to pursue a more in-depth education at The Aveda Institute and then afterward assisted experienced stylists within the craft. Prior to that, I was a weird kid. I spent hours in my bedroom, experimenting with my hair and makeup, and performing "photo shoots" with my camera phone. Naturally no one was surprised when I became a hairdresser, then expanded into photography and modeling.

     When you sit in my chair, it is my honor to use our time together- whether it be for 45  minutes or 3 hours- to get to know your personality, style, wants and needs and then transform your hair to fit that. My mission is create something with your best interest in mind and work your hair toward its healthiest state, while helping you relax and enjoy the process.
