I was born to do this… 

Growing up I never would have imagined that one day I would have a career in film; the possibility never even crossed my mind. When I was younger I would always help my friends with their hair and makeup, something I had always thought came easily to everyone. I remember waking up one morning and thinking, 'I should take a makeup course.' And that's exactly what I did. I spent years as a freelance artist without really getting anywhere in my career, and as such I decided I should pull the plug, and move on to other things. However as I was making this decision I got a phone call that would change my life. A local film company was doing a 24 hour film race, and they wanted me on board. I said yes, and from that moment on my life has never been the same. The film ended up being one of the top films in the race and we got to go New York for an award show, where I ended up winning 'Best Makeup.' As I went on stage to receive my award I knew that this was going to be my future. All of the passion I had been missing from my life was suddenly there; this was my wake up call. Sometimes in life fate steps in and leads you exactly where you are supposed to be, giving you the hope and passion that you have been searching for all along. I could have easily given up and moved on with my life, but instead I had found my true calling. I have now worked on countless films, met many different people, and continue to improve both myself and my work. My passion for film is as real today as it has been from the beginning, and my love for the industry only continues to grow. My advice for anyone reading this would be to never give up on your dreams. Dreams are meant to be made, they can become a reality, and even if things seem tough there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. With each new day continue on your journey, focus on your goals, and keep moving forward. I wouldn't change my career for anything in the world, because I know for a fact that I was born to do this
