South American born, stylist extraordinaire, creative soul, lover of all things beautiful….
I graduated from Queen’s University with a degree in Marketing, a pivotal time that helped
mold me into the woman I am today.
From the time I was old enough, I played in my mother’s closet and with her makeup, it was dress up 24/7.
The idea of dressing up made me feel special and glamorous even at a young age, fabrics enticed my brain, colours brought to life! And so it began my love affair with clothing and style. I also fancied the arts; I learned to play the violin at the tender age of 8 embracing it with such culture and from that point on knew creativity was part of my soul.
Having an innate sense of style and industry knowledge has taking me to the next level as a style innovator and fashion influencer. I built my brand as a high-profile freelance stylist with work appearing in editorial publications such as Chloe Magazine, Canadian Living, Dolce Magazine, Sweat Equity, Plaid Magazine, XO Mag and Huffington Post. Conceptualizing ideas, styles and overseeing production shoots, all of these experiences taught me to take a step back in time learning the finest beauty techniques of bridging old world glamour with modern new age chic. Working with outstanding clients over the years has taught me valuable skills and given me the growth necessary to propel me to all new adventures. Collaborating with some of the industry’s most respected photographer’s has allowed me to create clean, elegant and precise looks and uniquely garner the ability to seamlessly cross the worlds of corporate clients, high fashion editorial and marketing campaigns.
I bring my corky creative personality to each project..…I work as a puzzle maker, pick the right photographer, model and clothes for each aesthetic, production and shoot. In other occasions I’m just a piece in the production puzzle, collecting and styling the right clothes for a certain concept. Either way I love creating over the top outside the box ideas and making them come to life.
