Guy LaLiberte, Nukutepipi, Tahiti
Nukutepipi private island resort in Ovation

Cirque du Soleil co-founder Guy Laliberte bought Nukutepipi, an island in the middle of the South Pacific, originally as a refuge for himself, his family and close friends.

Departures Home & Design issue, October 2019
Departures Home Design issue

I was asked to take an architect, an interior designer, and a chef shopping for kitchen systems as part of a story for Departures magazine's current Home & Design issue. As you can imagine, these three -- Brian Messana of Messana O'Rorke, Young Huh and Angie Mar of The Beatrice Inn -- had very distinct tastes and preferences. I learned a lot...

JCK Magazine/150th Anniversary cover shot

JCK is one of the oldest continuously published magazines in America. For the 150th anniversary cover, we pulled pieces representing every decade, era and movement, setting them in and around a paper sculpture by Jo Lynn Alcorn. This was shot by Kenji Toma, and includes pieces ranging from vintage Victorian to David Webb, Martin Katz and Anna Khouri. The whole issue is an amazing journey through the eras of adornment. I highly recommend a read...
