I am most passionate about team collaboration! Having a diverse team brings about solutions on a broader scale to any challenges our department may face, and keeps us fresh while moving forward.
Makeup. Not just the kind woman put on their faces most days. I enjoy creating complete transformations by using a variety of special effects materials to create an endless number of characters for local short films/videos, etc. Though challenging most times, I thoroughly enjoy it, and haven't stopped talking about it since I discovered I could do this in the 90s.
"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!" -Rocky Balboa
