I am a theater designer, educator, and advocate. My work focuses on costume and scenic design for theater, opera, and dance. Though every project varies greatly, I approach each one with the enthusiasm to collaborate with my team, empower voices, and take on the responsibility to tell meaningful stories. I seek projects that are unique and uplifting, ignite a spark inside me, and challenge me. My design process carries me through intense research and communication with my fellow artist to make the best choices to represent each individual story. I care deeply about our theater community and am an advocate for best practices, support, and respect in our institutions. Mentoring emerging artists is part of my mission, so don't hesitate to reach out and keep in touch.
