I have designed costumes professionally for the past fifteen years.
After earning my MFA at the University of Texas at Austin, I worked in regional theaters (Williamstown Theatre Festival, Long Wharf Theatre, the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, Old Globe Theatre, and the Guthrie Theatre) as a draper, dyer-painter, first hand and design assistant. I apprenticed with such award-winning costume designers as Desmond Heeley, Jess Goldstein, Susan Hilferty, Paul Tazewell, and Andreane Neofitou on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in television, and in opera.
After moving to New York in 1998, I began my freelance career. Since then, I have designed Death of A Salesman, All My Sons, and Top Girls at the Guthrie Theatre; My Fair Lady at Actors Theatre of Louisville; Ladies of the Camellias at the Denver Center for Performing Arts; Intimate Apparel and The Underpants at Milwaukee Repertory Theater; Indian Ink and Machinal at Kansas City Repertory Theatre; Measure for Measure at the Folger Theatre, and many shows for the American Players Theatre.
In New York, I have designed Hecuba, The Gentleman Dancing Master, The House of Bernarda Alba, The Persians and Much Ado About Nothing at the Pearl Theatre Company; Luminescence Dating at Ensemble Studio Theatre; Tatjana In Color at The Culture Project; and Ten Times Ten at The Juilliard School.
