I’ve been cutting hair for 9+ years, now. It was at the age of 15 that I started cutting hair, and I vividly remember this because it was around the same time that I became a father to my oldest daughter, Merarys! I gained a passion for cutting hair ever since a friend of mine, John, blessed me with my first pair of clippers and the opportunity to practice at his shop.
Unfortunately, I could only learn and practice to cut hair on Saturdays. I remember taking my clippers back home with me so I could go to school on Monday to tell everyone that I learned. I was on a mission for opportunities to practice more! In the beginning it was a rough process for me. I received negative feedback and criticism from others; saying that barbering wasn’t my thing. At one point, I felt very discouraged, and laid off on cutting hair for a few months. However, after graduating high school, I felt motivated to start haircutting again, and I was blessed to work with my childhood barber at his shop.
My experiences at that Barber shop inspired me to become a Professional Barber. After Witnessing clients leave the barbershop with a positive mindset, happy and feeling good about themselves, I started to realize my potential for changing a life through a well-done haircut.
Eventually, I'd like to become an entrepreneur for my own product, and also open my own barbershop. I envision releasing a hair product that hasn’t been produced before that will be beneficial to my clients and anyone else who uses it.
I believe if we Dream Big and work hard, it will come true! As a valued member of the Inspiration Barber Shop team, my goal is to positively impact my clients by offering premium, detailed services and building a socially comfortable atmosphere to make everyone feel at home.
