Aspiring rope artist, or so-called "rigger" in the SF Bay Area. Experienced in self-ties and rigging other models for shows, photo shoots or filming. I personally enjoy creating unique and unconventional concepts, but I'm also interested in the traditional shibari/kinbaku styles. I focus on the aesthetics of the rope art, and am a bit of a perfectionist. Photographer Rue99 described my ropeworks as "the tidiest" he had seen!

-Good ol' traditional shibari
Very limited trade work, due to the time, energy and thoughts I have to put into each concept. I have a set of rates that are based on context (floorworks only or with suspensions?) and complexity or level of difficulty. It is reasonable and negotiable, especially with art students (I hear ya brothers and sisters!). Shoot me a message/email and we can go from there.
***And let's do both of us a favour: Unless you know a lot a lot about rope, otherwise it is much easier if you simply tell me how you envision the outcomes or the final images and I can try my best to achieve it and make it work. I understand sometimes we get something different than expected, but the point is... Please oh please for everyone's sake do NOT google the terminology and throw those terms at me. It does not make you look smart, and it certainly does not help me in understanding what you want.
