My career began as a professional model for Elite Modeling Agency in New York, where I developed my clientele in New York, Milan, Italy, Paris, France, and London, England, and worked with some of the greatest fashion photographers of the era including Albert Watson, Patrick Demarchelier, and David Bailey. I also performed as the Charlie Girl (see commercial below) for Revlon for two years, which included international commercials and ad campaigns. From this solid grounding in front of the camera, I soon turned my eye to creating ephemeral looks from behind the camera. Through a series of events, I had the opportunity to study under Skip Smith, former head makeup artist at CNN. Through this valuable experience, I began my career in live television, print, and film and had the wonderful opportunity to make up some big personalities including, but not limited to:
Al Gore, Tucker Carlson, Barbara Bush, Hilary Clinton, Arianna Huffington, Christiane Amanpour, Charleton Heston, Bill O’Reilly, Hannity and Colmes, Wolf Blitzer, Larry King, Jesse Jackson, Devon Murray (Seamus Finnegan from the Harry Potter series), Marylou Henner (from Taxi), Olivia Holt (from The Disney Channel’s “Kickin It” show,) Shaun White (Olympic Gold Medal Snowboarder), John Elway, and Peyton Manning.
My clients include ABC (including Good Morning America), NBC, ESPN, Target, NFL Films, Proctor and Gamble, Direct TV, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, Wal Mart, Disney, Gaia TV, Vail Resorts, Spri, and Gaiam. Currently, I am the Makeup Department Head (freelance) at Gaia TV, an online consciousness media network based in Boulder, Colorado, where I manage makeup, hair, wardrobe, and makeup freelancers for the ever-expanding list of shows and talent displayed on the booming network. Through my relationship with Gaia, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work with leaders in the leadership and spirituality space including:
Marianne Williamson, Michael Beckwith, Dr Theresa Bullard, Dr Joe Dispenza, Gregg Braden, Bruce Lipton, Nassim Haramein, Robert Grant, Don Miguel Ruiz, Lee Harris, Carolyn Myss, Cyndi Dale, Anita Moorjani, Regina Meredith, and Matias de Stefano.
