I have been a licensed hairstylist since 2002. Raised on the Northwest side of Chicago in a Italian American family, good hair, fashion and music was part of our lifestyle. I was very confident in my work from the begining of my career as a hairstylist and it showed. I have studied with Aveda, Kerestase, American Crew, just to name a few. My most memorabile studies were with Bumble & Bumble in New York City. It was there my eyes opened wide. I learned about photo session styling. I worked day in the salon and night in the studio to create a portfolio. In 2006 I was signed as a hairstylist for Ford Model Management. I worked sucessfully on commerical photo shoots and fashion runway shows including Teen Vogue, Diesel, ABC 7 news and much more. Currently, I work as an independent hairstylist and L'anza Healing hair color educator. Being an educator keeps me on top of hairstyling trends and techniques.
