1. Tell us any and everything that you want us to know about you as a person (personality, fun facts, upbringing, etc.)?
I am a professional make-up artist in the game for over four years. I work as a commercial and high-profile makeup artist to stars such as Actress and Producer, Vivica Fox. I have done local and national commercials as well. I specialize in beauty and editorial style make up. I am from a small town in South Jersey called Willingboro. I was raised old-school by my grandparents. I have a very outgoing and upbeat personality that brings light to any room; I never go unnoticed. My favorite food is Spanish food and I love rice and peas.
What Makes You Unique?
What makes me unique is I have the ability to bring a smile to anyone's face and bring out their inner beauty with my brushes.
What is your definition of confidence? Would you consider yourself confident? Tell us why.
My definition of confidence means staying true to yourself. Your confidence comes from within. I consider myself an extremely confident person, especially coming into my 30s.
Do you remember a time when you weren't confident? If yes, share with us an experience and how you felt doing that experience.
I remember a time where I wasn't confident and had to speak at a beauty school. I felt like I didn't deserve the opportunity at the time, and I didn't see the light within myself. I was so nervous and constantly kept sweating. But I focused on one thing in the room and I made it happen.

What's the biggest lesson that you've learned from having your brand?
The biggest lesson I learned from having my own brand was nobody will go harder for your brand but you. Teamwork makes the dream work.
What can we look forward to seeing in the future dealing with your brand?
2021 you can look forward to seeing an extension of all things beauty from make up to permanent make up and ultimately becoming a lifestyle brand.
How do you stay motivated?
How I stay motivated every day is saying daily positive affirmations as well as saying a prayer that I'm thankful for the opportunities that have been brought into my life.
Name three things you can’t live without.
Gel manicure, gummy bears and concealer.
What words of advice would you give to our audience concerning staying positive in today's times?
Words of advice that I could give someone is take each day one day at a time and remember there's always a light at the end of the tunnel.
How did you learn how to do makeup?
I learned how to do make up really well fast and efficiently by doing make up in the strip clubs for three years. That got me ready for a TV production and film make up.
