A Wonderful Life Making Beautiful Things...

I'm a producer in the entertainment industries known for costumes and general wizardry. I manage crew, clients, events, projects, budgets and logistics. Behind the scenes, I work on much that I keep quiet about, but publicly I co-manage a rather famous production design studio that bears my family name.

In my work I enjoy some pretty fantastic zen states plus great clients, colleagues, students and friends. It is awesome partnering with innovative producers and performers who keep raising the bar for exciting content and engaging design!

Book a PRESENTATION for YOUR Business or Academic Group

MASCOTS DEMYSTIFIED: Sweet Successes and Funny Failures Throughout History. A visual and interactive workshop covering ideas, designs, psychology, numbers and ad-reach for some of the most memorable (as well as most forgettable) campaigns ever. A presentation especially for marketing creatives and ad sales directors who need to make critical decisions that send the right messages.

ETHICAL WORK: When Designers Need to Put Down Their Tools and Walk Away. For creatives and designers who've had enough, and who need practical solutions and reminders about why it's important as citizens and designers to have a moral compass.

HOW TO HIRE: What Your Business Needs to Know About Contracting and Working With Designers. We are in a fantastic subcontracting economy, full of opportunities! Businesses and designers need to develop common languages as well as best practices and clear contracts for managing project expectations and outcomes. I explain how to do all these so everyone wins!
