I am a visual artist, burlesque performer and model based in Los Angeles CA, though my experience and network spans GA, New York, Japan, Mexico and Canada. My professional work focuses on creating fantasy characters mainly through costume and makeup. I am heavily influenced by Japanese and American traditional and pop culture.

I have a Journeyman's degree from the Make-Up Designory in Burbank, CA and I've attended school at the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Savannah College of Art and Design, and UCLA.  

I am also a paramedic.

My portfolio consists of collaborations  with many close friends. I prepare most the shoots myself, and provide all hair, make-up and clothing unless otherwise noted.

Owner and designer of Secret Lair Dance Wear
