welcome to my site & portfollio
As soon as I graduated from high school, I decided to pursue my interest further by attending San Rafael Beauty Academy, a beauty school north of San Francisco. Upon graduation in 2005, I apprenticed until 2006 as a junior stylist at At the Top, an elite hair salon, in Mill Valley, where I was given the opportunity to contribute to the 2007 Fashion for Compassion Breast Cancer Benefit. In 2007, the renown owners of the successful José Luis Salon in Texas, José Buitron and Bill Pitts, me to work alongside them at their “Hair and Skin Care oasis.” Through their guidance and inspirational expertise, I gained the experience of a lifetime under the tutelage of two such extremely talented and knowledgeable artists.
Since I have already explored the fundamentals of beauty, I am now focused on the prospect of more advanced training. For example, when I took a stage makeup course at Fresno City College, I discovered that I could excel in this area and that my work impressed even my instructor.
In the 2011 Fresno Fashion Week, I was in charge of hair and make-up for a men’s line, “Huache” by designer Alfredo Sanchez. The depth of my professional capacity was proven even further when I assisted Luz Maria with her music video shoot for her latest release, “I Don’t Care.” Currently, I am a stylist for Good Haircuts in Kerman. My latest project is a self-help video tutorial for a high fashion mohawk.
