Scotch Tasting at the W

Recently I had the good fortune of collaborating with a stellar creative team to throw a Saturday night Scotch Tasting.

What’s Your Beef 2013 Decor Re-Cap

This year I was more than happy to tackle the decor for What’s Your Beef. You may remember the inspiration board from last month, when a lot of the crafts were just rough plans. I didn’t quite know how a lot of the elements would turn out, but I’m pleased that almost everything ended up […]
