I work confidently across the design spectrum from concept to shoot, consulting brands for visuals reboots, styling catalogs, set design, editorial, and advertising. I take on many roles and i love them all. My design work includes restaurants, homes, showrooms and pop-ups.
In my personal life, i explore the edges of consciousness via meditation and feeling into what is just over the horizon. I am fascinated by visionary spaces. In my commercial life, i incorporate sensory experience and go beyond it. Expectation is subverted. Illusion is woven into spaces and experiences. Space is used to tell potent stories. And stories convey the purpose of a brand.
