What made you get out of the service?
*I got out because it was my time to go. I served my country loyally and realized that the military was a temporary fixture in my life.
Why was becoming a makeup artist important to you?
*After working in a maintenance, male occupied job for several years there were not many women who looked like women. I didn't want to just be a grease monkey. I wanted to show everyone that I could turn a wrench better than any of them as well as preserve my sexy feminine side. I guess it just evolved from there.
What is your motto?
*I wasn't always a beautiful butterfly...I had to start from somewhere, develop and realize that the world is what I make it.
