What's your hustle and what's dope about it? 

As a makeup artist I'm constantly working with multiple talented people in collaborative projects for television, film,  music video's, magazines, campaigns and look books in NYC. The internet has opened up so many people to connect and new business owners. I explore individuals who speak from their soul, I've starting a blog to feature the stories behind the products that talent creates. Highlighting imperfections and making them I'm Perfection moments.
