I was born in Rochester, New York and was raised in a hi-fi stereo store selling headphones and records before the age of five. My father turned it into a video store in the late 70's; one of the first in the nation. He often quizzed me mercilessly on french new wave and depression era blues simultaneously.
I began my Hollywood career as an intern on the Love Connection; soon after my untimely departure I became a producer on a USA Television procedural, award winning short films and a hundred or so broadcast commercial advertisements. After returning to school for a Masters in Business Administration, I started MAKE + MODEL, a creative studio specializing in broadcast campaigns and content for national and international brands.
I pride myself in building lasting relationships with clients and artists striking a delicate balance between the advertising business and the creative. I've been lucky enough to meet lots of amazing people in some incredibly beautiful places along the way.
