I currently reside in Denver, Colorado where I work as a freelance costume designer and stylist in film and commercials. I'm the creator and of Spare Drawer Designs, a small jewelry company. I also work as a Kid's TV story consultant for Amazon Studios.
I hail from Wilton, Connecticut, the very town that inspired Ira Levin's "Stepford Wives." My father’s job as a geologist brought the family to remote locales across the globe, a great contrast to cookie cutter New England (which, in itself, is a beautiful culture) but, I learned there's a vast world out there! I spent my youth traipsing around in costume, mimicking the traditions within each civilization we'd visit. Adorned in Bolivian woolens, Namibian batik, Aboriginal headdresses, and spanish heraldic talismans, I was always in another world.
This naturally led me to the stage, where I fell in love with storytelling and celebrating cultural identities. I attended Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama and earned a dual degree in Dramaturgy and Fine Arts, graduating magna cum laude with honors from The Andrew Carnegie society. I have since worked in film, television, digital media, commercials, documentaries, Broadway and experimental theater in Los Angeles, New York, and now Denver.
