"I love telling stories and exploring characters and spaces. I love that I get to expand the world beyond the script. I love the challange of exploring all possible means of physically representing concepts, ideas and emotions.  My goal is to work with meaningful stories  and find the the right collaborators who are dedicated to pushing solutions to make interesting things happen. I love the wide range of decisions involved in production design and I see every opportunity to tell stories through architectural details, colors, patterns, lighting and furniture.
