Summary

I work as a production assistant, set decorator, art director, and designer for photo shoots and videos, as well as designing and mounting interactive art installations. I am extremely hardworking, good at taking direction, and impossible to phase.

Conceptualizing/designing/mounting interactive art installations where I also create the costumes for my models/myself. I conjure a mystical, glittering harem-den - billowing shelter, luscious, pillowed floor, fresh bougainvillea, christmas-lights, candelabras, and smokemachine. I provide paints, paper, brushes, and an extensive selection of instruments - and let magic play.
