I am a native New Yorker and have always had a passion for the arts, travel, and good-living. When I was 18, I decided to move to Milan,Italy and studied fashion designing for a year at Istituto Marangoni.
What a whirlwind of living in a great city, partying my butt off, and eventually coming to the conclusion that becoming a fashion designer was not my thing. I returned to Miami and realized realized that after living in such a fabulous city, I could not live in anything less than that.
This fed my revolt and 3 months later, I decided to do a pirouette right out of Miami, where my family moved to, right back into the arms of New York City for the next 18 years. There, I fulfilled a dream of mine and joined the Makeup Artist and Hair Film and Television Union in 2008 as a makeup artist. This has given me so many fantastic opportunities such as working on well-known projects such as The Deuce, The Get Down, and Law and Order.
In 2016, I decided that I needed a change in my life and decided to move to Paris, France part-time where I am merging my passion for beauty and wine through my blog Wine et Beauté. There I discovered my love for French desserts and created a Wine and Dessert pairing experience, Bonne Bouche.
Jumping into this next phase of my life taught me to continue to take chances and keep leaping into the unknown journey ahead which is quite exciting. Merging my knowledge as a Beauty Expert and Wine Enthusiast has showed me that life has no limits and that all things are possible.
I welcome and thank you for joining me on my adventure.
