My Story

I booked a one way ticket to New York to follow my dream of becoming a fashion stylist. I got the chance to pursue my career while styling look books, model portfolios, working as a personal styling at Rent The Runway and  visual merchandising for The Gap. I took a break for several years and went back into marketing realizing I miss creating stories, curating pieces, playing with clothes and creating. 

I'm currently working by way back into the industry and looking to book work, helping photographers, advertisers, individuals and companies create their story, characters and image.


Sewing, creative direction, photography skills with Canon EOS M6, styling for fashion shows, individuals, and photo shoots, visual merchandising, project management, digital advertising.

Based in the NJ NY area
