As a food stylist with over 20 years of experience in the photo and video world, a keen eye for beauty, harmony and mouthwatering goodness is what fuels my creativity on a daily basis. Cooking has been in my blood since I was born, my insatiable curiosity for food and the endless combination of ingredients is what led me to the rewarding world of food styling.
I have worked on local and national projects ranging from TV commercials and cooking shows to print advertising and editorial work. In addition I am an award winning recipe writer, creating and testing accurate recipes for various assignments. I book local to Chicago & Milwaukee and am available for travel outside these cities.
Over the last several years I have added the title of photographer to my resume, offering photography services to international food touring companies. I have the pleasure of attending these tours alongside the guests while creating a photographic memoir for their keepsake once they return home.
I bring a high level of skill and professionalism to every project along with an enthusiasm for each opportunity. My talents in the kitchen coupled with experience in prop and set styling, public speaking, modeling and wardrobe styling allow me to offer clients a unique set of skills they appreciate and often utilize. I love my job and I do it well, I am grateful to have turned a passion into a career.
My client list includes but is not limited to:
Bon Appetit, Kraft, Crate & Barrel, Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Corona, Frigo, Rice Krispies, Sargento, Calphalon, KFC, Jimmy Dean, Palermos Pizza, Kenmore, Sartori, Schreiber Foods, Aldi, Kroeger, Taste of Home Magazine, Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin, Digiorno Pizza, Hidden Valley Ranch, Cousins Subs
What is my.....?
