I tell stories with stuff.
Bobby-pins, a chipped dish, a feather, a chewed piece of gum, tarnished silver dice, one lone Cheeto – can be a mess. Or, woven together with exacting consideration, it can be the story of a person’s life. It can make you feel longing or satisfaction or a little of both. It can transport you to another place.
I work with a wide array of brands, but I always bring the same careful eye, sense of humor, obsession with detail, and spot-on storytelling to every project I do.
This and this and this are campaigns I did for Warby Parker, starring different pairs of eyeglasses in their own personal character studies. Here’s a piece about the versatility of watermelon for The New York Times Magazine. I’ve done high-fashion editorials and dog party hats, dutch still life and spray paint cans. I’ve styled cakes, cookies, cocktails, candy, clementines, carpets, cigarette butts, baubles, beer, bikes, books, blobs, froot loops and french fries. Not to mention that time I gold-leafed a 65-year-old tortoise. (He loved it.)
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and live in DUMBO Brooklyn with my husband Jacob, our funny son Marlowe and our kinda old-lady-ish Boston Terrier, Olive.
