Margaret Elman has had a successful and varied career as a creative director in advertising, as an off-broadway playwright and as a bespoke furniture designer – all before her love of food, photography, cinema and collecting antique props from around the world culminated in her finding her way to her dream job as a commercial director in the culinary world.

Among her many commercials (for such brands as Haagen-Dazs, Nestle, Dole, McDonald’s, Kikkoman, Publix, Chobani, Panera, General Mills, Campbell’s, Applebee’s, Healthy Choice, Olive Garden and many more), Margaret has directed second unit feature work for the Weinstein Company and shot a variety of print projects. And she feels incredibly lucky to live and work in a world that seems to have become as passionate around food and telling cinematic stories about it as she is.
