Beauty Creatives.com: What prompted you to get into hair?

During high school I enrolled in a vocational program I wanted to get a skill that I could earn a living at while going to art school one that didn't involve selling drugs my body  or waiting tables that is however upon entering beauty school I became intoxicated my hair BAC has been off the charts ever since

Beauty Creatives.com: What's the biggest challenge you faced on your road to becoming a Hairstylist?

Becoming a hairstylist is easy, maintaining  joy and fulfillment in any field is the trick, for me,
reinvention, leaving no stone unturned in seeking out new experiences, interfacing with my contemporaries,  stalking my idols  and staying humble has kept me as turned on to hair as I was in 1988 when I graduated beauty school.

Beauty Creatives.com: Where do you find your inspiration?

High art, high fashion, sex workers, old people, architecture, drag queens, serial killers , spaghetti, Chardonnay , crime TV, ugly people, photographers, Italian Vogue , Japanese Vogue, cool young people in big cities, pizza, anonymous sex , and so much more that would be
censored  in polite company.

Beauty Creatives.com: What is the toughest and best part of styling hair?

It is a craft that is never easy there is no computer that can replace us, our creations are utterly
hand made and thus singular each and every time, no two haircuts are ever the same, this is the beauty and the curse of our profession, it could either drive one to insanity or be the great preoccupation of one's lifetime. It's never dull, I promise you that.
