Hey, check me out- I'm wearing the custom hat built to match this new custom costume!

It's a Wonderful Life Making Beautiful Things...

I'm a developer in the entertainment industries, known for my costume design and general wizardry,  I work on many other things behind the scenes that I keep quiet about, but I publicly 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 companies and performers who keep raising the bar for exciting content and engaging design!

We Should Work Together...

Because you are:

  • A producer/director who wants amazing things made for your film or creative project-
  • A presenter/performer/producer who needs spectacular effects and wardrobe for your next big event-
  • A writer who wants some feedback and analysis of your script or story's world and its narrative-
  • A thinker who likes to discuss interesting cultural and artistic issues-

I know you probably fit into one of these categories. Let's talk!
