Q: When did you realize you wanted to be an (fill in the blank)?


In my early/mid 20s i moved to San Francisco. I had just quit training horses, to which I’d thought I’d be doing my whole life. I had zero"city" skills. The only job i could get was at a Whole Foods. All i wanted was a people facing, skill based gig. My older sister planted the seed about becoming a hairdresser, but soon after met a kid named Dan Diemidio. Dan was/is a barber. I was like "this guys great! Super fun, plus he's ITALIAN" It happened pretty much just like that...

Q: Who or what are your biggest influences or heros?


My heroes have always been cowboys

Q: For what in your life do you feel most grateful?


My skill set for sure. It's probably the best decision I’ve ever made. From the people I’ve met and the conversations we’ve had, the opportunities that have come because of it from travel to now owning my own business. My shears are my vessel.

Q: What one PRNCPL do you abide that is most important to you?


I'm a student for life! I'd like to never stop learning. Whether it be hair related, business, health or about myself. There's always room for improvement.

Q: If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year-old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want?


This is a tough one but I Gotta go with the body on this one. Don't need my brain to have fun.

Q: If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?


It'd be cool to be really good at gymnastics.

Q: What is the greatest accomplishment of your life? 


Self employment 

Q: What do you value most in a friendship 


I think a true friendship helps you move forward in life, challenges your ideas but as well as inspires. I’ve got no time for the friends that want to hold you back and accuse you of changing. If you ain't changing, you ain't living!

We’d love to hear from you
