Flawless Finishes

Proprietor

I launched Flawless Finishes as a house painting company that would support me when I am between production jobs. But, in 2008, I began to get contracts to build sets for productions and that year, I built a set for a CARTOON NETWORK promotion featuring Andrew W. K. as well as one for CONAIR (the makers of hair dryers, clippers, etc.). My company has also built sets for fashion designer L'Ren Scott.
Since then, my business has seen me through the tougher times as I have been improving the homes of my clients.

AAB productions

Second Second Assistant Director

Initially, I began with AAB as a PA (HUGO BOSS/ INTERVIEW magazine).
As of recent years, my responsibilities included making sure that talent was on time and that their needs were met for ELTON JOHN's ENDURING VISION (2007-2012) as well as a score of FASHION SHOWS.
I would add an "end date" except that AAB still calls me for events.
