Real Reel…

Over the past few years I’ve shot hundreds of photos, videos, and top-downs featuring a wide variety of products. In most cases, I developed the recipe being shot and managed all food styling.     


Recipe Development

I specialize in developing creative, delicious, and straightforward recipes that are highly shareable.

Whether you need recipes for your restaurant or  recipes featuring your product, I can make it happen.

Food Styling

I have experience in styling for still photography, video, top-downs, un-boxings, restaurant menus, and reality television. I can work in a studio, on location, or in my own kitchen.

Culinary Producer

Working with food, developing recipes, and producing great content are a specialty best handled by passionate foodies. If you simply need fresh new ideas for your brand or someone who can pull a whole team together to produce a great content, let me know.
