KVMUA ARTISTS

Dave's background began in the Entertainment Industry as a Dancer and Choreographer for Hotlegs Dance Company, Philippines. Dave's 12 years experience as a Professional Dancer has allowed him to work for some of the largest Television Networks in Asia which include ABS-CBN and GMA Philippines, also making frequent appearances in The X Factor and more. Being in the industry forced Dave to to teach himself Hair and Makeup and learn from artists behind the scenes. This eventually led Dave to his freelance career and find his passion in the Beauty Industry.

After Hotlegs, he moved to Dubai to pursue and master the craft of Hair and Makeup Artistry. Based in Dubai for 3 years before moving to Melbourne and trained further at "It's All About Makeup". Dave's passion and hard work has earned him an even greater clientele working for numerous private clients as well as the TV network - Physique TV Network at the Goodlife Show in Dubai. 

Since settling in Melbourne in late 2015, Dave has worked as a Celebrity Makeup Artist on the set of the Real House Wives of Melbourne, as well as other local and indie short films in Victoria.  Moving forward, Dave's main focus is building his creative freelance career and making a name for himself in the World's Most Livable City. What Dave loves about the art of Makeup is "being able transform oneself physically and also empower ones self esteem is the best thing a makeup artist can share with his clients".
