Christopher began his career in the beauty industry as a fashion model over fifteen years ago. Though he found success as a model and love for the industry, modeling did not provide the creative rewards he desired. The experience taught him something else: as a bi-racial man (part black/part Italian), many professional makeup artists could not match his skin color correctly. Curiosity prompted action; action led to a conversation that would unleash a passion that would ignite a decades-long career.
It started at Saks. After a photo shoot, Christopher went to the cosmetics counter to purchase his own makeup for photo shoots. He shared his issues as a model with the counter manager (they talked for two full hours), and at the end of the conversation, she offered him a job as a regional makeup artist for the company, saying, "I can just tell you'd be good at it!"
Since then, he has become a visionary in creating looks for women that are real, unaffected, beautiful and glowing. His philosophy is one of simple glamour. After more than 10 years as a working makeup artist, Christopher pursued his esthetician license, completing his desire to be a true beauty expert.
As a makeup artist, he has worked with some of the biggest celebrities in the industry: Jennifer Lopez, Kimora Lee Simmons, Brooke Shields, Kerry Washington, Halle Berry, Glenn Close and Jane Fonda, to name a few.
Originally from Flint, Michigan, Christopher was active in the theater during high school and college at the University of Michigan, where he earned a B.A. in Communications and Broadcasting. He developed a strong work ethic while working in television production, where the work was hard and tedious, the hours were long, and the pay was bad.
Though Christopher knew that television production was not for him, he did like the excitement that came with being part of a large production. This is where his fascination with "behind the scenes" came about, and also where is proficiency at certain skills emerged: dealing with complex situations, dozens of people, and paying meticulous attention to detail. These were things that most people never saw: the stress, the excitement, the hard work and the payoff.
