"Is Your Story Making You Sick? Notes: Shot on location on a ranch in Tubac, AZ. The assignment was to create a more intimate look to a very stark, not-so-pretty meeting hall. 10 free-standing screens were needed with custom upholstery to on both sides and various props to soften the corners of the room. The screens compress the space and provided a blind for crew and equipment.
I've managed, designed and contributed to countless promotional materials and art directed for still photography and films/video. My clients have needed design, casting, props and locations with solid scheduling and organization, not to mention the follow through and attention to detail which makes the difference between "OK "and fabulous!
My colleagues/pals would say I’m resourceful, fast on my feet, kind and funny—with a skill-set as wide as the Grand Canyon. In all modesty, I’m a wizard. My exceptional instincts allow me to quickly intuit design, communication and the concepts of any project. I possess exceptional usage with color and the ability to understand what someone is telling me, even when they don't know what they want.
