Where are you from? Ohio, but St Pete is where I belong
Who or what has influenced you? First and foremost my mom Rhonda, who was also a stylist for 9 years. Watching her do hair always fascinated me and then when I figured out that it was really fun to do at a young age I knew I had found my happy place.
Where do you draw your inspiration from? I really love the fashion industry and have had the opportunity for the last 5 years to be a part of Fashion week in New York as well as Miami working with designers such as Betsy Johnson, Jason Wu, and Rodarte to name a few. This experience has definitely been a source of inspiration for me. Everything from the clothing to the buzz of the city when fashion week takes place is so captivating! I also am very inspired my my own team here at number9! They are awesome individuals and artists that I have the opportunity to collaborate with.
Who is your dream client? A client that is open to my advise and expertise. I love any challenge and journey to a look that fits their specific lifestyle and personality.
