a proper artist with a knife
Q: What have you done since graduating to further your education?
A: Countless hours of education, and challenging myself daily to approach haircuts and colors in new or innovative ways. My goal is never to do the same exact cut twice.
Q: What do you like best about your job?
A: That it's not a job. It's an avocation where I can connect with other human beings. A place to practice artistry where I am free to express myself in a way that feels honest to myself. The bonus is that it pays for a roof over my head.
- Graduate of Paul Mitchell The School, Salt Lake City
- Uses Dikson color line for it's richness and warmth
- Offers women's and men's cuts and colors
Q: What made you decide to become a hairstylist?
A: My childhood dream was always to be an artist. I took a detour to business school, but in the end it only made me realize how important artistry, and a fidelity to my own passions, is in life. My sister suggested hair at one point, and it seemed like a great fit of artistry and sustainability.
Q: What do you do in your time spent outside of the salon?
A: I spend alot of time writing; fiction novels, poetry, short-stories. I meet weekly with my writing group which has been instrumental in helping me develop my craft. Naturally I love to read! Victorian and Gothic Horror literature, but I also love a great history book. I usually end up doing three to four paintings a year. I relish spending time with my family, it is my most fulfilling activity. I love to work out, listen to music / podcasts, watch documentaries or period piece tv / movies. I love to play guitar. I love scary movies or video games. I'm always stimulated by deep and engaging conversations about philosophical questions or issues, or any topic which requires you to use your mind critically.
