How did you get into hair?
I got into hair because I wanted a job that would connect me with people. The hair industry is fun, creative, and social. Never in a million years did I think I would become a hair stylist, but its easily one of the best decisions I have ever made.
What do you love about the hair industry?
Oh man, so much! I desire to give back everything that I have been given: Joy, gratitude, perspective, insight. Getting to do hair is such a gift because of the interactions with the people. My hope is that through sharing time and space together, we can recognize the gift that both hair and life is.
What kind of hair are you known for?
I love cutting hair; I could cut hair for hours. I love how dynamic it is and how immediate the cause and effect is. It’s like one big discovery process. I love personalizing, dry cutting, razor cutting, thinning, texturizing, layering. All of it. I feel that a good hair colour is best supported by a great hair cut.
What foods can't you live without?
Honestly, There are very few foods I won’t try. Latin food and Indian food are two foods I can’t live without.
Fav song or artist on repeat?
I mean, I’m still an Emo Kid at heart. I make seasonal playlists of all the songs that I’m into during the spring, summer, fall, and winter. I try to keep these mixes as eclectic as possible, but most of what you’ll find is pop punk.
What is your personal style?
I want to call it streetwear or punk. I love punk because it’s really hard to pinpoint what punk is, but you know it when you see it. Basically any fashion trend that rejects the status quo I am here for.
How do you spend your downtime?
Playing music, reading books, making/drinking coffee, cooking, thrifting.
What is your fav local business?
Do you have any recommended reading or watching?
The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr and Comedy Sex God by Pete Holmes are two of my favourite books. Seinfeld and How I Met Your Mother are two of my go to sitcoms. A Drama that I will recommend to anybody is Mr. Robot.
Any past/future travel plans?
I lived in Southern California for a year before beginning hair school - that was pretty great. I’ve been to South America a few times and I’ve done lots of road trips to see bands play across Canada and the US. I would love to go to Japan or Israel at some point in my life.
Fav quote or motto?
“Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.
But you are life and you are the veil.
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity.
And you are the mirror.”
- Kahlil Gibran, On Beauty
I have over 20 tattoos and no intention of slowing down.
