I’m a Puerto Rican living in Los Angeles with a passion for the arts. A visual artist, dancer and performer since very young, I was able to find that perfect mix of performing and visual arts in MAKEUP. I started doing stage makeup on myself growing up, and then got into theatrical makeup in college, were my love for makeup grew exponentially.
After graduating from a Specialized Visual Arts High School in Puerto Rico, I continued my college studies at the prestigious University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus earning a BA in Theater Arts with a minor in Dance Education. During my college years, I joined the University’s Traveling Theater group where I stumbled upon the only other form of art I loved as much as dancing and visual arts … Makeup.
Not even a month after graduating college I moved to LA to keep pursuing my love for the arts and makeup. Throughout the past 5 years I have endeavor as an arts educator, as a makeup artist in several short films and web series, danced in various renowned dance festivals across LA , acted in plays, musicals and short films, and worked as the personal assistant of Pop Artist Burton Morris. Being in LA and surrounded by so much ART, my love for makeup just grew stronger, getting specially interested in Special Effects, TV and Film.
I just finalized an Artistry of Makeup Certification from the E.I. School of Professional Makeup, and graduated with honors. Now not only did I get to refine my beauty and fashion makeup skills, I fell completely in love with sculpting, making prosthetics and applying them.
