Josef was born and raised in Orange County California. He always had a natural talent for painting and drawing. Realizing he also had a natural ability for make up, he decided to move to Hollywood and polish his skills as at the "Hollywood Make Up Academy".
While at the "Hollywood Make Up Academy", Josef was trained by celebrity make up artist Monet Mansano. After receiving his certification, Josef began to work for the school as an assistant. Years following, he began to work for Smashbox Cosmetics as an Area Artistry Trainer.
Currently, Josef's passion for make-up continues as he is a certified, editorial-photo-shoot-make-up artist, specializing in runway, bridal, print, and stage.
