I am a San Francisco Bay Area-based artist specializing in food and product imaging which includes still life, motion, and video. While I have over 30,000 photos delivered and can make beautiful images, the reason why you would hire me is for my ability take your great idea to the next level.
My strength lies in a nimble and lean approach to creative visual results. Clients love getting creative outcomes at a reasonable cost since I can art direct, style, and shoot their images myself. I enjoy working closely with marketing directors, brands, agencies, art directors, graphic designers, influencers, chefs, and entrepreneurs to build vivid, authentic imagery that engages the visual tastes of the viewer.
My studio features its own prop house, a fully-equipped kitchen, 2 still-life production studios, an outdoor studio, and a post-production station. I am experienced with remote production for busy clients and have a proven creative process that quickly gets to the heart of what the client desires. Projects quickly go from creative brief to final image using my in-house team. I also enjoy collaboration with outside artists as well as work on location, too!

My experience as a chef, stylist, and photographer has earned me many awards including APA Top 100, ACF Gold Medal, and a juried fine art photo exhibit at Art Basel Miami. I was Executive Pastry Chef for two Hyatt Hotels and Resorts before completing two post-baccalaureate certificates for Visual Art and Graphic Design at U.C. Berkeley Extension in San Francisco. I have a master's degree in food business at the Culinary Institute of America with an emphasis on sustainability and branding.
Bring me your idea and I will turn it into gold! One client saw a 44% increase in sales from just one project.
