What are you passionate about?
Everything I do. If I am not passionate about it, I don’t do it!
From where do you derive creative inspiration?
Everything and everyone around me. An idea can pop into my head and I can't let it go until I develop it or it flops.
What do you like most about working at Savvy?
I like everyone I work with. I also enjoy the community around us and the guests that sit in my chair. What an amazing journey!
What service is your "Specialty"?
I have been doing this all of my life, so I am pretty darn good at all services, but I would have to say that haircutting is what I enjoy doing most. Hair color correction can be a great challenge and I love a challenge.
