As a kid I couldn't get enough of horror and Scifi movies. Even at 6yrs of age I would stay up late to watch my favorite monsters like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Alien or The Terminator. The bloodier the better!
I rediscovered my passion for special effects makeup in 2011 after a very zombified Halloween outing with a group of friends. I quickly realized that as an adult, not only was the passion still there (maybe even more so) but I had a natural talent for it.
I eventually stumbled into the theater world. In 2014, I founded Dreams on the Rocks Productions, a Bay area based theater company committed to bringing to the stage original scripts inspired by cult classics and B rated movies to stimulate the audience to gasp, cringe and guffaw.
In 2018, I joined Peaches christ and david flowers as the makeup lead and production assistant for their company into the dark. In October of 2018 “terror vault” (San francisco’s premiere immersive haunt experience) premiered at the old historic mint building in downtown san francisco. In october of 2019, “terror vault” will be back for it’s sophomore year along with the new attractive “Apocalypse”.
Creating is one of the most exhilarating feelings. As a makeup artist, you watch your two dimensional drawings turn into a living breathing piece of art.
