FOR INCOMING TEAMS: As well as being available as HOD/Designer for feature films, I have worked with  incoming Make-up and Hair teams from the US - as I did for Oscar winning Stephan L. Dupuis on "Spider" and Oscar winner Judy Chin (Make-up) and Nathan J Bush II (Hair) on "Across the Universe".  I worked with Albert Wolsky for a week in Liverpool preparing the crowd hair and make-up for The Coven sequence and Liverpool exteriors.  I put together a team to cover the calls on the filming days. 

AS A DAILY: Many Crowd Supervisors just TEXT so I look out for those messages.  I really enjoy doing dailies

ADDITIONAL PRINCIPALS AND GUEST ARTISTS: I am often asked in to work with main team to do guest artists, additional principals on heavy days.  Whether established or not, I take note of the brief and do exactly as requested by the Designer.  As a Designer myself, I appreciate how important it is to have the look and continuity maintained and instructions followed closely. 

WEDDINGS, SPECIAL OCCASION AND EVENT MAKE-UP & HAIR - POA

LAST MINUTE BRIDAL MAKE-UP & HAIR: If your bridal make-up and hair artist is suddenly unable to fulfill the booking, no worries, just give me a call and we can talk it through.  Very often we put looks together on the day for films, so if you find yourself unexpectedly in a 'fix' don't worry - let's get cracking. P.O.A.

I look forward to your call.

Thank you.
