I am a stylist and designer based in Los Angeles. I've worked in the fashion industry for over a decade and have developed a keen eye for color and proportion. I am currently available for work on photo/video/film shoots as wardrobe/flat stylist or costume designer. I also do personal custom design from time to time, so let me know if you have a project you'd like to collaborate on! Please have a look at my resume for a listing of clients and projects, and see below for a selection of current work.

I've been a Spoon fan forever and I have a great memory of seeing Handsome Furs at the Bowery in NYC so getting to style this video for indie rock super group Divine Fits was sort of a dream come true! Of course it was a rare rainy day in LA when we shot this IN A POOL with the band freezing and wet but I think in the end it was worth it and actually made the video look more dreamy.
It was SO exciting to get to work on this music video for such an amazing band!! I loved collaborating with Janet to create her 'robot' costume - taking both aesthetic aspects and ease of movement into consideration.
My friend Swaan Miller really came through on this shoot, providing first her amazing home in the Hollywood Hills and then her gorgeous smile and insanely charming personality when our agency model wasn't quite what we'd expected. She even let us put pink lipstick on her, which she never wears, exclaiming "it feels like I have an animal on my face...a really pretty animal". Thanks to the talented designer Kristin Dickson behind the line Rowena Sartin for lending her latest styles. Thanks also to Weltenbuerger and Mohawk General Store for clothes and jewels. Gorgeous silver necklace designed by the lovely Swaan herself.
I always love working on the BP.tv shoots for Nordstrom. Styling Spring Break was so fun because the animated paperdoll concept was so cute, I love how it turned out! The looks had to be shot on video, on figure and then on the flat to make the final piece work. The BP girl is so cute and trendy that it's always fun choosing accessories, jewelry and styling pieces to complete the looks.
Joshua Tree National Park is one of my favorite places. When my friend Brooke said she was coming out from New York and wanted to do a shoot - I knew J Tree would be the perfect spot. We had so much fun cruising around the park, climbing boulders, running through the cholla and the ocatillo patches and drinkin bourbon til it got dark. Thanks Christian, Kelly and Renee for camping with me!
I had the best time styling this campaign for Jag Jeans! This was an exciting shoot to be a part of as it was a re-branding of their line including a new website, full page ads in In Style and Harpers Bazaar, and a new, younger direction for their customer.
This music video was one of my favorite projects of 2011. When director Christian Hansen asked if I wanted to art direct and handle props and wardrobe for a 70s bowling themed music video with a band of witty and talented southern guys in Austin, Texas I said hell yes! And getting to work with character actor extraordinaire Art LaFleur was a dream. If you ever get a chance to see The Wheeler Brothers perform live I highly recommend it.
Modeled after one of our favorite documentaries, Grey Gardens, this shoot was a fun collaboration between myself, photographer David Belisle, and art director Cole Tsujikawa. Even though we were using young models to represent the Beals, we wanted to keep it authentic looking. It was fun and challenging gathering props, styling the wardrobe, and scouting locations for this shoot. We even shot some frames in front of the house where Frances Farmer lived in West Seattle.

Ocean Shores captures a day in the life of two young lovers on a weekend getaway. This was such a fun shoot to style and prop, and even though it was FREEZING we had a blast running around to all the different locations sipping whiskey and laughing all day.
I made these great cushions for a bench seat that a friend of mine constructed. I used exactly one vintage wool Army blanket - stretched it to fit the size of the foam and had almost no scraps leftover. I've been quite into home improvement projects lately, and I love using recycled fabrics/materials.
