Occupation: SFX Makeup Artist

Nicolas 'Niko' Daniel Gonzalez was born and raised in San German, Puerto Rico. Since childhood, he has been involved in theater, dance groups and Tae Kwon Do. In college, he took formal makeup classes and would volunteer to do the makeups for various events and theater productions. This gave him the push to pursue makeup as a professional career and brought him to his current home, Los Angeles. His expressive and passionate personality seeps into his artwork and has allowed him to graduate from Make-Up Designory's Master Make-up Artistry Program. He next went on to work for the school's SFX lab, its retail cosmetic store and at the school as a substitute teacher. With knowledge from his black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do, Niko has a keen sense for resources and has the discipline to compete in Face Off.
