BIOGRAPHY

I have spent the past 12 years as a television Art Director, growing along with every project with which I've been involved. After studying Architecture, my initial work experience as an architectural Project Manager gave me design and construction experience on both small-scale retail/restaurant projects and large-scale sports stadiums.

Since moving into the Entertainment Industry, I have had the opportunity to work on variety, sketch comedy, and late-night talk shows before moving into scripted, single-camera television series. I've designed for soundstages, theatrical stages, studio backlots and locations, and understand the unique demands of each type of venue. I am fortunate to have worked with a close Art Department for several years, with whom I'm proud to have created richly layered spaces.

My professional attitude allows me to quickly connect with visiting directors as they get to know the sets, and my friendly communication style provides a calm atmosphere that keeps any production staff collaborating seamlessly. I am a creative and resourceful problem-solver with good time management skills and a great attention to detail.

Travel is an inspiration to me, and I enjoy immersing myself in foreign cultures and their architecture as often and as long as possible. I also love home and I am constantly building, renovating, sewing, making or cooking something around the house. I'm a very motivated individual who strives to make work fun.
