About:

I'd wanted to be a trapeze artist when I grew up. A lack of family connections with circus professionals led me instead to train in classical ballet and contemporary dance.

In my education and experience I went on to explore theater, film-studies, creative writing and mysticism. I received my BA from the University of Minnesota and graduated with honors from Horst, the Aveda Institute.

During my twenties my gypsy-soul took me wandering. Ultimately, I settled in southern coastal California, where, after establishing my skills in the salon industry, I went on to become primary makeup artist to a professional photographer.



Once back in my native Minneapolis I quickly became a respected name in the print and production industry. My love of being a part of this collaborative, creative industry continues.

My childhood dream of flying through the air still lives in me! These days, however, I fulfill the thrill through airplane flights to faraway lands.

I love what I do.

I do what I love!  ​
