Production Designer I LOVE NY - Niagara Falls (commercial) I especially love the glow of the slide projector in this set—it echoes the heat between this unlikely couple. It also makes everyone, no matter how young or old, feel as though it’s time to look fondly back on their youth.

Production Designer VIDAL SASSON THE MOVIE (feature) This beautiful documentary was lead by another legendary stylist and visionary, Michael Gordon. I found the documentary beautiful. I was a set decorator for the Art Director’s set.
Costume Designer PARIS (off-Broadway) I was a costume designer before I became a set designer. For off-broadway theater productions, I like to do both sets and costumes. In this show, I was also a performer however. So I had a collaborator for the sets.
Set Designer / Costume Designer PARIS (off-Broadway) DIRT! 15 cubic tons of dirt formed Chuck.Chuck.Chuck. This is the dump truck that deposited the dirt in the garage performance space in Williamsburg/Brooklyn.
Set Designer / Costume Designer Chuck.Chuck.Chuck. (off-Broadway) The dirt gave the sense of “somewhere” and “nowhere” at the same time.
