Acerca de


I have been an Art Director in the film industry for over a decade and I am well versed in the needs of crew and client, locations and designers. 

I have a keen eye for the craft, with the variety of my own experiences in four departments, I have a heightened attention to detail and can manage a crew through excellent listening skills and empathy for each department’s position.  As an Art Director within any production, it is my responsibility to communicate directly between the Director, Producers, Production Designer, and the entirety of the rest of Production Departments, Crew & Community, Accountants, Construction leads, Casting, Set Decorators, Vendors, Transportation and Locations. The position must guarantee smooth operations between ALL departments. Diplomacy and kind communication being the key.


I am responsible for managing the Budgets for each department and communicating any red flags to the production management team.

I am also expected to create all the visual guides and technical packages explaining the plans that translate the vision of the Production Designer to the entirety of the rest of production, including executive producers and crew.


I work proficiently in Photoshop, Illustrator, inDesign, Pages, Word and Acrobat.

I speak several languages including French, some Spanish, and I am learning Japanese.
