Growing up in an Italian American family in northern New Jersey, Ali was naturally exposed to authentic, home-cooked meals. 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 for family and friends. 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. Several years of training and experience later, she now brings that passion and creativity to her career 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, digital media, on various social media platforms, and can be seen on consumer product packaging. She continues to expand her areas of expertise by test shooting to stay current with the latest trends. Ali pays homage to the many talented stylists and photographers who helped mentor and influence her work 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 with open arms.
