I'm a Chicago-based photo and interior stylist. I started my career as a visual merchandiser for Crate & Barrel and CB2. After honing the art of room staging, vignettes and window displays, I moved on to pursue a personal goal of creating my own line of textiles and furniture by partnering with artisans in Guatemala and El Salvador. During my time as co-founder and creative director of Maya Mueble, I was able to be 100% hands on with product development, marketing, styling and product photography.

While building my business, I began to network more and more with other small business owners, which led to me styling and photographing their collections for look books, product photography and Instagram content. By both styling and photographing for these projects I was able to strengthen my eye for composition, color and design making me a more well rounded stylist. I've since put full focus on styling, using my experience and creativity to bring brands, big and small, to life.
