Why did you become a hairstylist?
I’ve always wanted to do something creative. Originally I wanted to be a chef, but realized that I loved women and wanted to work with hair. I feel like the luckiest man in the world, I meet 30-40 people every day. My main thing is to make women smile, what a great job!
What is your philosophy on beauty?
A lot of people think beauty is a physical thing, but I believe beauty has to come from the inside. Always be passionate about who you are, and you will have a beautiful life rich with experiences.
How do you spend your free time?
I enjoy snowboarding and I play soccer with a team. I really love people! I’ve all about exchanging experiences and I’m learning about culture, technology, travel and art—it’s so New York!
