After completing a Bachelors Degree from the University of Puerto Rico in Liberal Arts and a Masters Degree in Communications from the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón. I decided to pursue my love for beauty.
I am a freelance professional that has been working in the fashion industry for over 15 years.
I began my journey with Chanel Cosmetics in Puerto Rico where I developed a taste for minimalist beauty. Continued my training with renowned international Makeup Artist David Lang excelling and becoming his protégé. I’ve had the opportunity to be featured as a guest makeup artist for cosmetic companies such as Avon, Clarins, Cover Girl, L’Oreal and Maybelline, as also for local and international publications. As a Tenured Artist for MAC Cosmetics, I had the opportunity to be part of the leadership team at the MAC Pro Store at Tyson's Corner Center in McLean, Virginia. I am currently located in the Woodbridge, Virginia area and I am currently a Product Expert for MAC Cosmetics at The Estée Lauder Companies.
During my development as a beauty consultant, I had the opportunity to work with underprivileged teens and women in various philanthropic projects with La Casa Julia de Burgos, Angeles Custodios, Proyecto del Centro de Estudios Materno-Infantiles (CEMI), Fundación Golitos – La Fundación de Fútbol para Niños con Autismo, CREARTE, Salvation Army and Sector 26. I realized that beauty and fashion have a huge impact on how one feels and portrays oneself. This encouraged me to seek education in fashion styling and consulting.
As my dedication for the industry continued to grow I went on to study at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T) to develop my intuitive eye in wardrobe styling. I’ve had the opportunity to work side by side with many known and reputable designers in Puerto Rico such as David Antonio, Ghabriello Fernando, José Raúl and many local retail brands. I’ve also collaborated with international designers Isabel Toledo, Oscar De La Renta, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Paola Cavalli and Sully Bonelly. Becoming well known among my peers as one of the most esteemed stylist on the island. This catapulted my career into the television Industry where I am became the Wardrobe Director for the variety show “En Blanco y Negro”, Stylist for award winning television personality Sonia Valentin and Ramón “Gato” Gomez for the morning show “Juntos en la Mañana“.
