I love teaching, creativity and beauty which is why I love my job. Each day I work with an enthusiastic team and clientele that allow me to be as creative as I want to be while inspiring me to get outside the box. In our industry, commercial work tends to be repetitious and conservative. People aren't willing to go to the office with an orange, multi-colored, avant garde bob. As a result, one of the challenges I face as a stylist and artist is how to successfully merge high fashion with the kinetics of everyday life.

I began working in the industry soon after graduating cosmetology school. As every stylist know, it isn't until we reach the salon floor that we really come to understand our craft. I wanted to learn and I had the opportunity to learn from one of the best. Competition within the industry is fierce, so training with Humberto was an important benchmark in developing my skills. Studying the art with Humberto has broadened my perspective. As a mentor, he afforded me the ability to travel to Spain where I studied with some of the best artists in the world. But, it isn't world travel and industry masters that make a stylist great. It is passion.
