About me

Welcome to my site. I am a Los Angeles based set designer.

I spent hours doodling as a child, started professional figure drawing lessons as a teen, and was eventually introduced to computer design in college. I went to complete a BFA in Digital Media Art, an MFA in Filmmaking, and lastly a second MFA in Production Design from the American Film Institute Conservatory.  Since drafting my first line on vellum in line weight class,

I have known this is what I want to do, and my journey as set designer really began there.

In 2016, I was recognized at the American Movie Awards in the category of Production Design/Art Direction for my work on the film, Pressure-Man. I was chosen as one of the Art Directors Guild apprentices the following year. Then in 2018, I am honored to become part of IATSE family. Since then, I have been working as a set designer in film and television with renowned companies, such as Netflix, CBS, Disney, Apple, etc.
