Now I'm going to get a little personal and maybe sappy. ;-)
Growing up in rural West Virginia as a gay kid wasn't always the easiest. Especially talking about my dreams of one day being a makeup artist in Hollywood. These were dreams that I would hide and tuck away as I tried to fit in and obtain a more "masculine" career. It wasn't until my late 20's I decided my life was mine and so was my happiness. I attended beauty school at Paul Mitchell in Virginia beach then after a couple years I followed my dreams and landed in Los Angeles with 3 suitcases. Mind you I had never even been here before. I can remember landing at LAX and looking at the cityscape and seeing the Hollywood sign from afar in the plane and having feelings of being scared but also a fire inside of me that I could feel in my throat as I knew I had made the right decision in the next chapter in my life. I took that leap and risk for my dreams and it paid off big. Since being in LA I have held corporate positions in airbrush education at 2 major makeup brands and of course now me and my partner Ramon own airbrushmasterclass.com sharing our knowledge and the "industry secret" of beauty airbrush to fellow artists globally via LIVE STREAM.
Whatever you dreams are, whatever you goals are know that the universe will support you in everyway and help you get there in your journey as long as you follow a simple formula.
