She just has that perfect punch of finesse.

During Carmina Cristina’s service with us, I admired her for many valuable qualities and regarded her with evermore respect. Very much a team player, Carmina was always punctual, yet easygoing. She was keenly devoted to her work but being a real people person, she was also enjoyable to be around. Carmina demonstrated from early in her tenure that she understood what business is all about. She was well organized. Almost without exception, she put the customer first, feeling as I do that the key to good business is satisfied customers. I suppose doing well in business is easy if you are, as she was, efficient by nature.
I first worked with Carmina as an actor. It was a fast-moving set with a lot of actors and Carmina effortlessly met her deadlines for each actor and got everyone to set on time. I was very impressed. I also work as an independent producer/director and I realized the value of someone with her skills and calm demeanor under pressure. I was fortunate to be able to book Carmina for my next project. The shoot required that our lead actor have an overgrown bushy beard that almost reached his chest. Carmina took on this challenge with the same calm ease that impressed me on our initial meeting. On the day of the shoot, we were running behind due to inclement weather. Carmina helped us make up that time by applying the beard and make-up effects in even less time than we had allotted. I have worked with a variety of make-up artists but Carmina is by far one of the most talented and dependable professionals I’ve met.
Carmina completed her work timely, creatively and professionally; always on time and available on set to freshen up the talent. Sets are always a tough venue, and generally result in a lot of stress in various departments, but Carmina executed these situations with a pleasant sense of humor, candor, and always with a positive outlook.
All the actors and crew that worked with her admired her involvement and her commitment to this project.
