He has judged for many pageant systems including Mrs.America, Mrs. United States, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, Miss United States, Miss America, Miss American Beauty, and the Miss US International Pageants.

I will be hosting a pageant makeup workshop
I have been involved in the Miss United States system since 2007. I competed on the national stage in 2012 and 2013, placing in the top 5 and top 15. In 2014 and 2015, I served on the national judging panel. I know exactly what it is like to be a contestant, but I also know exactly what the judges are looking for since I have experienced being in both positions. I earned my certification from celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic in May 2016. Through the growing success of my YouTube channel, LadyCode, I have become recognized in the makeup world and beauty industry. I work regularly with YSL Beauty, Rimmel London, E.L.F. Cosmetics, Pixi By Petra, and Charlotte Tilbury as a content creator.
I will be doing a demo on one lucky volunteer on:
Following the demonstration I will let you ask any questions you may have about competing, recommended makeup products, or even how to create a presence on social media! The first 10 girls will receive a free notebook and pen so you can take notes throughout the course, and I also have a gift basket worth over $75 in makeup for one lucky girl.
