My journey began back in 2013 when I attended Sharp Edgez Barber Institute after graduating from Wayne Central High school. Sharp Edgez ensured I received the best education possible, by teaching its students how to properly perform custom urban cuts. My skillset developed rapidly as I was exposed to many difference ethnicities in the short five months I trained at the Institute. Fresh out of barbering school, I immediately started my career at Joe’s Upscale Barbershop, Located in Webster, NY. I truly fine tuned my skillset here, working amongst some of the areas best barbers for just over a year. After my time at Joe’s, I took my advancing skillset to The Gentlemen’s Barbershop located in the East Avenue district, of downtown  Rochester, NY. The incredible men I worked alongside here helped me to truly fine-tune my craft. The Gentlemen’s Barbershop focused on offering an old-school experience for its clients. This ranged from the classic hot towel facial shave, any haircut you could imagine, scalp massages, custom beard grooming, and we also offered a wide array of hair and beard products. After spending roughly two years with them, I made the decision to relocate a few blocks down the road, where I began offering similar services. I ran and operated my own barbershop located in Harry Bruno’s Salon. This experience taught me many valuable lessons on business management, finance, and customer service. After a year of running my own shop, I decided to pursue other ventures for a bit. I continued to cut hair on the side, and still do! This entire experience lead me to where I am today. Bringing the town of Ontario the next chapter of my career, CORE Cuts, located inside CORE Fitness, and I couldn’t be more excited to serve you!
