New Portfolio Website!

It's taken a while, but I finally have a new portfolio website up for all of my Costume/fashion work. 

I used to have one on http://www.sceno.org/ , but unfortunately, they removed everyone's portfolio in March 2010.  I'm hoping that one day they will find the proper financial backing to continue offering the portfolio page service.  If you are interested in scenography and costumes, I definitely recommend you visit the site for the articles and blog.

I'm still updating the site regularly with past and recent projects, so please visit often and tell me what you think!

1-2-3 VIVA L'ALGÉRIE!



Just wanted to show some support for "Les Fénnecs" (Algerian national Football team)
They will be playing an elimination match against Central African Republic for CAN 2012 tomorrow October 10, 2010 (10-10-10!!!). 

Unfortunately, I won't be able to watch the match live, but will be checking the score religiously via internet (anyone have any idea where??? If you do - let me know in comments below ASAP!!!).

The national Algerian football team played so well in the World Cup last summer - I was so happy to watch a team play with such passion and pride ♥  - even if they didn't make it past the first stage.

No matter what, you can expect a big party at the end of the match - all those Fénnecs supporters are just as passionate as the players!

Naïve with special guest Mute



If you’re not from the Quebec region, you’ve probably never heard of a band called Naive. Ok, I’m from the Quebec region and I had never heard of the band!

Naive is a melodious pop/rock band from Montreal. Most of their music is in French, so most of their fan base is Francophone. They have toured extensively in the province of Québec, but I have no doubt that they could potentially take on new territories. They have a great sound and put on a great show – judging from their performance last Thursday, they are no amateur indie group!


Those who attended the Naive concert last week were in for a real treat – Naïve recently collaborated with Carl Lafontaine of Mute on a song called Antidanse (you can listen to this song on the Naive website) which they performed together onstage at the show. Now, if you’ve never heard of Mute…then where have you been????!!! When I listened to their album (self-titled), I loved every song. Their songs are well crafted electronic pop/rock with melodies that reflect their eclectic musical influences ranging from Depeche Mode, to Bowie, to Mylene Farmer. You can sample some of their music through their myspace page: Mute where you can watch their very stylish video for Code Unknown below, or send them a message (or buy their album) on Facebook.


Right now, Mute are looking to work with different singers and songwriters to conjure up some new sleek tunes. So, if you’re in the Montreal area (or are willing to travel), have a unique or distinctive voice, and you think you’d be interested in writing with a talented pair of musicians – send them a message via Myspace or Facebook.

It was a great show, and everyone just went completely mad when they played the song Antidanse!

Anyone else go to the show? Share your thoughts!
