Art Direction + Production
"Love words, agonize over sentences, and pay attention to the world." - Susan sontag
Communicating effectively means telling a compelling story. If stories unfold via precise details, then as empathetic observers and translators, we designers must occasionally stray outside the borders of what we think we know.
There are tons of ways to craft this kind of attention, but mine has roots in film and journalism.
I've worked as a Production Coordinator and Assistant Stylist on a web series for Aol.On called The Future Starts Here. I have also directed interior styling and photo production for interior designers and architects; envisioning, budgeting for and executing on art and accent details to pull together a cohesive story, look and feel for various corporate and residential spaces.
Framing a shot will forever be one of my favorite things to do.
