About Me

 

 

I am a feminist in the truest sense of the word.   I advocate for beauty equality & diversity that’s not based on a women’s age or dress size. As an avid Beauty Junkie extraordinaire, My  love for makeup and skincare began at age 11, when acute acne became my daily battle.  The ridicule and bullying I received on a daily basis, empowered me to become the person I am today.  Through a twist of fate, I  started my professional career, as one of Revlonʼs first male beauty advisors and quickly rose through the ranks to eventually become their Global Director of Beauty in New York. My quirky and meteoric cosmetic rise is chronicled in his first book, Blush: The Unbelievably Absurd Diary Of A Gay Beauty Junkie. My next career stints, in Product Development at L’oreal, and Executive Director at Donna Karan New York, gave me a much deeper understanding of women’s beauty & fashion lifestyle needs. From Saturday with the kids to Red Carpet glamour, from everyday work looks to girl’s night out, from a first date look to wedding day fabulousness, I know how to wardrobe skin care, cosmetics, and fashion looks for all the roles each woman must play in her daily life.

Today, I  live  in California. I call LA, Palo Alto, and Grass Valley his homes.  As an author, beauty columnist, screenwriter, and celebrity stylist, I continue his beauty quest, helping thousands of women put the best version of themselves out to the world. “Empowering women is my fate! Helping them is my fun.”
