After working as an IT recruiter for 10 yrs, I’m glad I decided to learn Hair and makeup for TV and Films. It was not easy to switch from a technical to creative field. But it was worth it. I totally love being outside my comfort zone and challenge myself. I particularly loved learning and working on SFX, prosthetics, Character, Period Hair and Make up as well as setting and dressing wigs. I am a self-motivated professional, who strives to achieve the best standards and show my creativity. I can communicate effectively and work well within a team or individually. I am eager to have a career in this extraordinary industry, furthering my work experience and skillset.
