About me
I am a photographer, menswear and costume designer for the Cyberoptix Tie Lab - although it is an accessories line, I also shoot and style my own work for use on the website and editorial spreads. Although the shoots will have a necktie somewhere in them, I source companion vintage pieces and produce one-offs for fashion editorials.

My work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Antenna, Nylon, BPM, Bust, Fiberarts, Metro Pop, Adorn, Amour UK, The Men's Book, and many others.

*** I'm looking for female models for my new latex rubber line for the night of November 14 in Brooklyn NY - this is an art and fashion event. http://areyoudevoted.com/events.html Elaborate, fashion forward/high-fashion editorial work only TFE preferred, can pay some cash money for the perfect look/very experienced models. ***

People always ask me why I "just make ties", like it is some bad word. Ties are always spoken of with such derision and sneer. They're the perpetual punchline in songs, jokes and consistently maligned as the most boring gift to give or receive. I wanted to change that. The necktie is such an interesting design problem from so many different angles; it's shape gives the designer an extremely challenging "canvas" to design within (dimension-wise as it is so long and thin, unlike a tee shirt). Conceptually, the tie is a traditionally hated object, one that symbolizes restraint, conformity and is the symbol of corporate American drudgery. What fun and challenge is there in designing something that people already love?

Menswear as a whole has been ignored in the fashion world and I honestly feel bad for guys as they're so limited in what they can wear that is truly interesting and not cheesy. There are a few couturiers doing it right but there's pathetically little that is both well designed and attainable at a reasonable price-point.
