MEET THE ARTIST:

Sean Dooley

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP:

Long Island, NY

HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FOOD STYLING:

I originally studied photography in my undergraduate – unaware the job of a stylist even existed. I was always more interested in what was happening on set as opposed to capturing it.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PROJECT THAT YOU’VE WORKED ON:

I really enjoy the ongoing beverage styling work I contribute weekly to Esquire. For over a year now, we’ve been capturing original, step-by-step content using recipes from their 85+ year cocktail archive.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD / DISH / CUISINE:

Street tacos

IF YOU WEREN'T A STYLIST WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING INSTEAD:

Interior Design

WHAT SONG GETS STUCK IN YOUR HEAD MOST OFTEN:

I Get Lonely – Janet !!

IF YOU COULD ONLY EAT ONE FOOD FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE:

…street tacos

WHAT IS THE ONE ITEM OF CLOTHING THAT YOU WEAR MOST OFTEN:

An oversized pocket tee.

WHAT WOULD THE TITLE OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY BE:

It would probably be more of a retrospective/collection of imagery – not just encompassing my career, but images from throughout my life.

WHAT IS THE HARDEST THING YOU'VE EVER DONE:

It’s hard to say; life’s all about growth.

WHEN'S THE LAST TIME YOU LAUGHED SO HARD IT HURT:

Memes are a guilty pleasure

WHAT IS YOUR SECRET TALENT:

Hand modeling and headstands

WHAT IS THE STRANGEST THING IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR:

An emu egg. They’re actually really beautiful - look them up!

WHO DO YOU ENJOY COOKING FOR:

Everyone, really. I’m pretty reserved so food is sometimes my language.

WHAT IS THE WEIRDEST THING YOU HAVE COOKED/MADE:

Kangaroo, maybe? My Aussie friend brought it back when visiting his parents.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO UNWIND AFTER A BUSY DAY:

If it’s a set day, indulging in takeout and catching up with friends/messages received throughout the day.
