A quick trip to New York catapulted him into the modeling industry, where he quickly landed a hair campaign in Europe for famed stylists Vidal Sassoon and Trevor Sorbie. It was here that he realized a talent and passion for men's styles and moved back to New York, married and became the most sought-after stylist for men's cuts.
