I am from Chicago where I started doing makeup for models and then catalog ...I soon longed for the fashion and creativity of NYC. I moved in my mid thirties everyone thought I was crazy because I had to start from scratch. I assisted Pat McGrath because timing worked and she'd just moved from London to NYC. What a great teacher and experience!
I soon moved into working with actors as things evolved. I have a huge respect and love for them and what they do.
In 2019 I decided to gather my experience and my love of taking photos and creating authentic candid profiles of compelling creators and actors -- I founded The Bare Magazine.
I am now on a new journey - and excited to keep working at polishing my passions.
