Hello!

 

I'm a costume designer and technician based in the Hudson Valley who specializes in historical and fantasy garments. I love working with costumes every step of the way and I frequently work both off-stage and off-screen as a wardrobe assistant and stitcher.  

 

I  graduated with a B.A. in Theatre Arts from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2020. While there, I was a designer and collaborator on several mainstage productions at SUNY New Paltz including In the Time of the Butterflies, She Kills Monsters, and Henry V.

I also worked as one of the costume shop assistants within the New Paltz Theatre Department where I was responsible for building pieces for shows, altering and repairing costumes as needed, and helping to facilitate the education of other students within the department. I have worked as a stitcher on several professional shows including Pride and Prejudice  (Syracuse Stage), Cymbeline (Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival), and Private Lives (Dorset Theatre Festival) Most recently, I designed the costumes for a production of All's Well that Ends Well at Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts and Education and worked as a wardrobe assistant and stitcher on my first feature film.

When I'm not designing and making costumes for theatre and film, I make custom fantasy and historical garments and read as many fashion history books as I can get my hands on.

 

Let's collaborate!
