... and have been working professionally in NY as a costume designer and an associate costume designer for nearly 5 years. I received my MFA training at Yale and was lucky enough to have 6 years professional design training in Washington, DC where I worked as a freelance costume designer and had the added benefit of running the costume stock at Washington National Opera. I also worked as a design assistant and shopper at Santa Fe Opera in 2011 and 2012.
I was raised on a farm in Ohio. I believe in collaboration based on mutual respect and trust in each other's inherent talent. I believe in hard work. I believe in insisting that good design does not come at the cost of good humor.
