"T is an amazingly talented Hair and Makeup artist and human in general.  Her technique and vision elevate any shoot she is a part of.  She has the answer to whatever challenge she meets and is relentless in perfecting looks and bringing creative vision to all her projects.  She does the work of a small army and all with a smile on her face.  Having T on your team is a guaranteed home run."  

-Sarah McAfee, Associate Creative Director at Laughlin Constable

"T is one of the most talented and hardworking Hair & Makeup artists I've had the pleasure of working with during my career.  She has a great understanding of trend and how that best translates to both the client and the consumer.  She brings a strong creative eye and attention to detail to every shoot and she has a knack for knowing exactly what the client wants with little to no direction.  I have worked with T on both print and television shoots and she consistently produces flawless looks under the most aggressive of schedules.  She is an absolute joy to be around and a dream to have on any project."
