Production Design. About me.
Production designer and art director for features, series, and commercials.
I often work on-location, and have experience in a variety of budget ranges. Most recently I was Art Director on Paramount's series, Yellowstone. I've learned my craft from some masterful storytellers, and bring a high level of professionalism and dedication to each project. I find that my passion and hard work is often reflected in those around me, and that is very inspiring.
I begin each project with openness, starting with conversations with the director, I research and pull references from many sources, including advice from experts. My favorite sets stay true to life and the characters.I design using scale, light sources, and color pallets to communicate the collaborative vision of the Director, DP, and myself. Adding layers of texture and detail transforms the set into an environment, and an environment that feels real is felt through the performances and allows freedom for the camera. I love pre-visual materials (mock-ups, illustrations, and models) for planning and implementing designs, and communicating with my crew and keys from other departments.
