Growing up in an Italian American family in northern New Jersey just outside of New York City, Ali was naturally exposed to the best of both culinary worlds; authentic home cooked meals and some of the best known restaurants in the world. Shadowing her grandmother from an early age, she quickly learned her way around the kitchen and became increasingly fascinated by the art of cooking and entertaining. Her strong desire to explore the world of the culinary arts eventually set the stage for a childhood hobby-turned-career as a food stylist. Following several years of training and experience, Ali brings that passion and creativity to each and every project with her unique style, delivering results for clients both big and small.
Ali has hands on experience in the preparation, styling, and creative process of presenting food for photography and film, beginning at idea conception to the end of production. Her work has been proudly featured in magazines, cookbooks, commercials, the digital media, and can be seen on consumer product packaging. When she's not cooking in her spare time, she's test shooting to keep up with the latest trends and broadening her skillset. She pays homage to the many talented stylists and photographers who helped mentor and influence her style throughout the years as she continues to expand her network of clients throughout the country.
*Ali recently relocated to Los Angeles where she plans to dedicate more of her time in the areas of film, television and commercial work. Nevertheless, she welcomes all opportunities both domestic and abroad.
