My job – in short – is to act as the ultimate eye on any visual project: A professional tastemaker, fashion curator, trend spotter, and brand strategist.

I have an extensive career in fashion, beginning with my time as a national buyer and merchandiser in New York City, Milan and Paris for luxury and designer houses including Hermes, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior and Chanel. In search of more creative work, I left The Big Apple in 2002 for the West Coast and decided to take the unconventional leap (for the time) from merchandiser to editor and stylist.

As someone who understands fashion from multiple angles – product development, merchandising, editorial, public relations, and advertising – I know how to develop and maintain brand identity. I believe my level of industry knowledge is a valuable resource for any client, especially today when images are often the only chance a brand has of communicating with their audience.

I’m available for print and video styling, product laydown, advertising campaigns, and creative direction, as well as brand consulting. I split my time between Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco, and am happy to travel for work.
