Paying attention to the details while overseeing the big picture are the skills I've honed throughout my career in New York City. I started on product shoots in advertising over 30 years ago, and worked my way into Art Directing editorial home remodeling shoots as well as food shoots.
My work ethic hales from my upbringing—my father grew up in "old world Europe" and taught me that no job is too small. I have held up photographers' reflector boards, steamed all sorts of linens, bit into foods for the "eating" shot, and moved furniture around the set. (Although, there once was a baby grand piano in a Washington DC shoot that didn't budge.) I really believe in being a team player.
Sharing with people in a beautiful environment and celebrating the feast are in my DNA. My Greek cultural heritage has taught me to embrace life in this way. So you see, making things beautiful is not a job to me. This is my passion.

Where I work...
Currently based in Allentown, I also serve eastern Pennsylvania areas — to Lancaster and beyond. A native Jersey girl who spent three decades working in NYC, I thrive in the NY metropolitan area, too.
