I'm a costume designer and technician based in the Hudson Valley about to graduate with a B.A. in Theatre Arts from the State University of New York at New Paltz. In my time at SUNY New Paltz I have focused on theatrical costume design with a minor in Spanish.
I have been 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. Most recently I was in the process of designing my first opera (Die Fledermaus) with the SUNY New Paltz Music Department, which has been put on hold for the time being.
I have been working as one of the costume shop assistants within the New Paltz Theatre Department where I am 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 recently been a stitcher on several outside shows including Pride and Prejudice (Syracuse Stage), Cymbeline (Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival) and Private Lives (Dorset Theatre Festival) Finally, I'm very happy to announce that I have recently accepted a job as a stitcher at Williamstown Theatre Festival.
