Growing up in Los Angeles, raised by 2 artists, I was infused from an early age to an aesthetic and cinematic culture. I am a fine artist who trained as a draftsman and a painter. I received my BA in Art History from UCLA and began working as a costume designer soon after. I work primarily in commercials, TV, and occasionally print. I have done campaigns for big brands such as Samsung Galaxy, Apple, Converse, Target, JC Penny, VW, Nissan, YouTube, McDonalds, Netflix, Microsoft, and an award winning PSA for Gun Control and The Special Olympics. Having studied and also experienced both high art and popular culture, I have come to understand that though they each serve different ends -both can excite, inspire, and enrich if the talent and visions are brought together. As Henry Ford said, “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses”. As a creative person & forward thinker, I agree. Creativity does not follow, it leads. Lets work together!
