I attended the school "Complexions International" in London, UK where I learned the powerful makeup basics in the fields of Theatrical Stage , Film and Beauty.
By 1994 I spent 6 years of often tough but so rewarding times being a creative part on some of the most beloved, successful and recognized Hollywood movies like TERMINATOR 2, JURASSIC PARK, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, and BATMAN RETURNS. The hard work paid off though as I became part of a 3 times Oscar Winning Team -
I STILL PINCH MYSELF SOMETIMES!
Countless hours sculpting the life-size T-Rex
I had the amazing opportunity to meet SFX guru Stan Winston through my fellow countryman and mentor, Arnold Schwarzenegger. After some intense trial period I became part of the Stan Winston Team in Hollywood, Los Angeles. Stan was my hero and idol and became my most beloved mentor who taught me all the high level skills around the many niches of Makeup

2005 was the year I met my wonderful, favourite client, now friend, Oscar Winning Actress, Natalie Portman and our beautiful journey started....from working on films, press tours, film festivals, award ceremonies (Oscars, Golden Globe etc), Beauty Campaigns for Dior to creating her wedding makeup ...... I'm so grateful for having met Natalie and for our many fun years together ... to this date.

The world of FILM Makeup turned me into a passionate skin enthusiast, constantly seeking to find the best possible solutions for my celebrity clients' authentic beauty.
Through the encouragement of Natalie and some other beloved celebrity clients of mine,
I took the step and created the
EKD FaceWardrobe®, where I bring my signature methodology around Authentic Beauty to women like Y-O-U. This is my secret approach that was reserved for only my regular clients until now.
Apart from the madness of 2020, there were some good parts too:
