Born in Tallin, Estonia 1987

Parents are Ukrainian. They moved to the US in 1989.

I started my career professionally August 2008

I love doing hair, but more specifically, I love manipulating hair. When I was younger, I loved to cut my sister and her friends hair, so I could watch how it moves with each particular maneuver of the shears. I also thoroughly enjoyed creating styles because hair has aspects of engineering methods. It needs to be broken down in reverse to determine how to construct from the beginning.

When I work on shoots, my blood flows energetically. I am in my happy place. When I am in my happy place, magic happens!
