I grew up in a small town in Southeastern CT, and discovered an affinity for hair in my teenage years.

I moved to NYC in 2006, and began an apprenticeship at Cutler Salon, where I currently still see clients for haircuts. I have spent the last 12 years doing a little bit of everything; not only working behind the chair and educating for brands like Redken, but also assisting on editorials for fashion magazines like Vogue and W and being the on camera hair expert for an MTV series. 

I have worked on over 20 seasons of fashion week in NY, Milan, and Paris. I have assisted the best hairdressers in the industry on shows like Victoria's Secret, Saint Laurent, Thom Browne, Maison Margiela, Hermes, Rick Owens, and Balenciaga.

I am a proud supporter of a non profit called Fearless Beauty, which works to empower under privileged women through education and careers in the beauty industry. I have participated in fundraising as well as working in a classroom in Rishikesh, India to help facilitate haircutting and styling classes for young women.
