For most of my career I've lived and worked as a food and drink stylist in San Francisco. Collaborating with creative photographers and clients is what it's all about for me. I've been at this for almost 20 years and I still get excited by the work. It all stems from my deep love and respect of food and art and working in the space that connects the two. My experience gives me the confidence to know how to tackle the technical challenges, while also maintaining a loose and natural aesthetic that comes through in the final image.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, I studied visual art then earned my culinary degree in Paris at Le Cordon Bleu. Following, I moved to New York city to work as a pastry chef and then as a food editor for Martha Stewart’s television program, an experience that taught me how to work under the most unusual and high-pressure circumstances. Today, my career with both commercial and editorial in print and video projects takes me all over the country. My love of food has only grown as new technology and practices have emerged. I am honored to be among the creatives who get to shape the trends and images of the food and drink industry going forward.
