1983 Graduated from Cosmetology school and began my career with Illusions of Glamour and Grandeur, taking the ONLY PAYCHECK JOB EVER in a Men's Clothing store, is where I developed my Fashion Sense. -- back in the day PLAYBOY and GQ magazine ruled men's fashion -- it cost money to get the honey's -- LoL
Working at the local mall while building my clientele, I got a break from one of my clients who worked as a Fashion Cordinator, for Dillards Dept Store doing runway shows. I was hired to style the Celebrity Guests Hair.
In 1985 after a few shows, I was hired to Glamourize the cover models for a magaizne published in Texas, when I caught the attention of several Tanning Bed manufacturing company's seeking a consultant for marketing. The Tanning Salon industry was VIRGIN territory.! We developed stratagies and products. Many of the companies I consulted with are today some of the industry leaders in Tanning beds and Products.
Early 1987 I began consulting with other beauty company's about packaging NEW types of Products with EDGY Styling Brushes, that idea launched my first distribution business. I began doing limited Print and Billboard Advertising to prove my point -- Sales went off the scale..!!
In 1989 I started teaching classes for John Robert Powers Modeling school--hand picking Models for specific campaigns. I performed as a platform artist at the Southwest Hair show debuting " The Style Directors Design Team " for several featured products. I began consulting with the Upjohn corporation - we started a series of strategies to market "A Marriage of Medicine and Hair " to Doctors and Stylists for the product known as ROGAIN. I was the 1'st distributor of Rogain Shampoo to salons.
1990 began with a series of advertisting campaigns includeing Newspaper Cover stories as well as direct mailouts and billboard signs.
1991-92 brought several TV commercials for Limousine companies and Gentleman's clubs. I began producing TV commercials and a series of video training tapes to salons featuring Advanced Chemical Technology and products. Having been bitten by the production bug, my next move took me into the RADIO / TV / Film industry.
