A fourth-generation Californian born and raised in Santa Monica, Dara spent her formative years surrounded by artists, innovators, and creative thinkers. With a deep appreciation for all things design oriented, she experimented in everything from fashion and interiors to floral design. Ultimately, after moving to San Francisco to study Art History, she serendipitously discovered the world of styling.
With over thirteen years of photo, commercial, and video styling under her belt, ranging from wardrobe and costume design to prop and textiles styling, Dara's depth and range of production experience and on-set knowledge is considerable. Her current focus is on collaborating with both new and existing directors, photographers, and clients, working collectively as a team to create beautiful, effective, and inspiring material.
The innate natural beauty and creative community of Los Angeles continue to inspire her work, and currently she resides in Atwater Village with her family.
