About...

 

          ...Vincent of Dreamhouse

"Imagine Tim Burton if he were to become a photo editor, make-up artist, a hair-stylist, photographer and costume designer…as well as still being a director…"

 

I encompass a broad range of mediums such as dance, drama, photography, costume design, set design, lighting design, film, infra-red visuals, even computer generated images (CGI…used to create special effects in films).  Because of my diversity, it is impossible to select just one category for myself.   I write all of the shooting scripts, design and make all of the costumes, I do all of the hair and make-up, I do all of the photography and all of the post edit.  And I am my own perfumer.  I wear many hats/guises: Dreamhouse-my overall "hat"...Otto Phokus-my photographer's "hat"... Ikiryō-my perfumery "hat".  I am basically a one man show.

 

I have been designing and creating costumes as well as doing photography since I was 14 years old.  I have been into fragrance since I was little, swiping sprays of my father's colognes as well as my grandmother's perfumes.  I studied/followed haute couture with my brother for two years, with designs on becoming the next American couturier in Paris after Oscar de la Renta.  In 2000, I felt the fashion industry became extremely sloppy...so I went back to my first love: costuming.  I soon began designing costumes for opera companies throughout Northern and Central California.  It was here that I began honing my skills as a storyteller.  In 2010 I began focusing developing my own projects, using my skills as a designer, costume maker, embroiderer, make-up artist, wig stylist, photographer, photo editor and storyteller/writer.  

I have every intention of returning to opera soon...
