I grew up in a small town in Maine where I was always and avid fan of horror and science fiction.  I studied Ecology at the University of Maine and began a career as a fisheries biologist.  After years of working on fishing vessels in the Bering Sea of Alaska and off the New England coast I decided to follow my dream of Special Effects Makeup.  In 2008 I attended Tom's Savini's Special Effects Makeup Program at Douglas Education center in Monessen, Pennsylvania.  Soon after I moved to Los Angeles and began my second career.

Featured Events

I began working on shows such as CSI Vegas, NCIS, and House M.D. where I was able to work with many talented artists and hone my skills.  Then I moved on to different shops to work on movies ranging from the lowest of budgets to summer blockbusters.
