Never the type to make conventional choices, after getting my degree in English literature I disappointed my parents by refusing to go to law school or become an English teacher but instead sought my calling in a series of odd jobs, strangely all food related. From peddling gourmet salts at farmers markets to slinging meat in a neighborhood butcher shop I managed to use these experiences and my lifelong love for food and cooking to segue into food styling, landing my first assisting job in 2008. I was sold from the moment I first built a sandwich held together with pins and Poligrip.
After a decade in the industry I’ve been called upon for recipe testing and development for various media including an instructional cooking app for Clear Media called Appetites. It was there that I discovered an affinity for styling props as well as food.
A regular “girl Friday” my experiences in both food and props have given me a broad knowledge of different aspects of set life. From distressing and sanding surfaces to sous vide and slow roasting, there isn’t any aspect of styling food or props I find daunting. Every new challenging project is just a problem waiting to be solved!
I am based in the Los Angeles area with the eagerness and readiness to travel wherever work takes me!
