I am a designer, art director, stylist, photographer and urban farmer living in Toronto with my wonderful human and extended fur & feather family. In addition to our dog and two cats, we also raise backyard chickens, ducks and quails for eggs, rabbits for fun, tilapia to eat, and a couple of not-so-mini pet pigs named Henry and Rocco.
When I’m not making food or photographing food, I’m growing food. Despite the long Canadian winter, our goal is to be self-sufficient producing most of what we eat year round.
Wine-making, mushroom cultivation, aquaponics and a mini backyard orchard are just a few of the projects going on at the “farm” right now. Welcome to our urban homestead.
Yes, I styled and took all these photos – by myself – with my left hand as my assistant. I’m a self-taught photographer with 20 years industry experience running my own design studio. Yes, I’m also lucky to be married to a uber-talented photographer to mentor me. And yes, you may call me for assignments.
