"I have a passion for creating art. My approach to makeup and hair to this day still comes from an artistic perspective, I create looks based on shapes and textures that highlight and compliment whomever I’m working with."

Who is your fashion icon?

"Tracee Ellis Ross. I love her style, authenticity, and sense of humor. She’s not afraid to go out of the box and experiment with her makeup, hair, and clothing. I also love that she uses her platform to speak for the equality of women, especially women of color."

Favorite Vacation?

"New Orleans. Amazing food, rich history, beautiful architecture, and a ton of fun."
