They met at the cross-country ski area in Craftsbury Common, Vermont where they cooked healthy meals from Moosewood Cookbook for guests, knit woollen sweaters, listened to NPR (or 33 LPs) and skied.
A couple of years later in Western Massachusetts Vince made a pair if cycling shorts by hand (yes, that means using a needle and thread) because cycling shorts in a store cost too much. The next thing you knew, Vince and Kathy were managing dozens of amazing employees and shipping out thousands of custom cycling shorts and jerseys to clubs and teams around the world. At the same time they were racing at a national level in cross-country skiing, mountain biking, triathlons and inline skating. Now, their film making career is following a very similar trajectory.
Intuitively, they’ve applied the same rules…
Do things right the first time
Do what you say you are going to do
Be someone on whom people can depend
and work as much as you have to.

In 2011, after recieving my license for Aestheology, I started my career in a salon enviroment as a laser tech while also heading up the makeup department in our spa. Soon after, I continued my education at Faces Etc. of MN Makeup Artistry school to hone my skills as a makeup artist. Today, having 5 years of on-set experience in film, television, print and bridal, I have also expanded to FX and prosthetic applications with an Education from Cinema Makeup School in Los Angeles and under mentorship at Metamorphosis Makeup, which I have found to be a true passion. As I continue to grow in the industry, I also continue to grow as an educator. I became part of the Faces Etc. education team in 2013 and continue to instruct beauty courses through-out the year.
