Freelance Stylist and Art Director

Brooklyn, NY, USA
I have a wide variety of skills and interests all falling under the design category. I am a still life stylist, sourcing and creating vignettes, sets and environments for photography and video. I am an event designer, creating tabletop and full event concepts. I also work in visual merchandising, installing window and interior displays for retail. I am a fabricator, an innovator and a creative. I create solutions for all types of visual concepts, both the design and how to make the ideas become reality.
