“Costume...It's the first impression you have of the character before they open their mouth...”
I make clothing for imaginary people.
Originally from Warren, Michigan, I grew up in the suburbs and maintained a fairly average lifestyle, sprinkled with bits of flair from the entertainment industry I was so inspired by.
I'm a recent graduate from Western Michigan University, with a BFA in theatre design and technical production, focusing on costume construction. I have worked in Kalamazoo, Chicago (Victory Gardens Theater), and New York (The Glimmerglass Festival), and hope to continue to travel and develop my artistry. Currently, I am based in New York City.
I am always looking for new and technologically advanced ways to improve and advance theatre artistry, specifically in costuming, and I often do research based off of those ideas. Although I am slightly obsessed with new ideas, innovations, and creative ideas, I currently utilize traditional techniques and building materials for my projects.
In theatre, there is certainly a balance of realistic approach and hyper-creativity, and I strive to find those varying middle grounds.
