Inspired by Dior and Chanel, he works in New York, where his clientele include Cirque du Soleil, Madonna and Thierry Mugler. He gained recognition for his work on the trademark hats and wigs of the longest running show in America, “Beach Blanket Babylon,” and earned greater demand by celebrities, even though he was not properly educated in fashion. His natural talent for design stemmed from his love of costuming, fashion and acting, which later led him to pursue a career in New York, and consequently earn him the Drama Desk Award nomination for outstanding costume design.
