Education: I graduated form the University of Memphis in 2011 with a Bachelor's degree in English. Later, I attended Paul Mitchell the school Memphis, where I fell in love with hair. During my cosmetology program, I completed the necessary requirements to make the Paul Mitchell Schools Dean's List, an honor achieved by a small percentage of students who excel in the areas of academia, attitude, culture, community, and school program involvement.
During my time at Salon Ya Ya, I have continued my edcuation by completing an 8 month associate program under one of the senior stylists. I have also taken advance training in color and cutting with Redken artists Jerric Fruits and Lauren Hagen. I have also taken hands on training in color technique and cutting with Pureology artist Ruth Roche.
Celebrity styles he admires: Chrissy Teigen, Kelly Rowland, Rihanna and Eden Sassoon
What inspired him to pursue a career in cosmetology? My mom, sister, and cousin all went to cosmetology school, so it wasn't unfamiliar to me. I always enjoyed watching them styling hair, never realizing that I would one day do the same thing. I originally thought I wanted to teach; then, I realized that this career path would allow me the opportunity to teach and be creative at the same time, which made me fall in love with the cosmetology industry.
