Getting my license as a nail technician in NY State was my first step into the world of the beauty industry. I currently am employed by Paintbox Salon located in Soho, which has been crucial to my development as a design artist in both gel and regular nail polish. Fashion week has also offered amazing opportunities working backstage for designers such as Oscar de La Renta, Cushnie et Ochs and Tadashi Shoji. My nail instagram is: nailed_it_by_amy. The most recent development in beauty has been receiving a certificate of graduation from Make-Up Designory (NYC campus) for makeup and hair. Make-up skills include natural, beauty, avant garde and special effects and hair training includes basic styling and use of hot tools. My make-up instagram is: amynic_powder_npaint. I am a trained musician (piano & voice) and have a degree in Music with a concentration in Piano Performance. Piano is a passion and something I studied with multiple teachers about 25 years of my life. The restaurant industry is where I have spent many years working as a server and barista. My most recent job as a server was at ABC Cocina (NYC), where Jean-Georges Vongerichten prepares menus featuring seasonal tapas with local and sustainable ingredients. Other skills include the Spanish language, which I also studied for many years and earned a minor through extensive study in college. I love cats and have always owned animals. My current cat, Eddie, is a polydactyl cat and is a very affectionate and well loved animal. Writing has also been a skill which I've developed over the years and have found myself to be very good at proof reading as well as writing new text. Please message for any other information. Thanks!
