Whenever people ask me when I realized I wanted to be a costume designer, I always answer, very honestly, that I knew when I was about three years old.

I remember the moment I realized that my favorite actors could appear in different worlds, as different characters, just by (in my three-year-old mind) switching up outfits. Once I knew that there were people whose job it was to transform people into characters through clothing, that was it.

I spent high school self-learning costume construction and history. After that, IĀ attended The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) for apparel design, before moving to New York to begin assisting costume designer Martin Pakledinaz.

I later received my MFA in Costume Design from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, and have been designing in NYC since. I currently live in Queens with my husband, our rescue cat Danzig, and lots of thrifted antiques.

In my free time, I enjoy studying languages, and am especially interested in any international/foreign language projects, both stateside and abroad.
