I've worked in the fields of fashion & costume design, illustration, & sewing. Social issues and the environment guide a lot of my work. Right now I'm mainly offering my services as a freelance costume designer and wardrobe tech. I also teach sewing classes at Brooklyn Public Schools.
I'm a self-described "fiber witch" and specialize in hand sewing, weaving, beading, and natural dyeing. My creative approach—no matter the medium—is to blend the realities of life with the magic of the imagined.
I have designed private label clothing for brands like La Senza and Material Girl. My indie handmade brand has been featured at Alternative Fashion Week Columbus.
In my spare time, I'm probably either dancing or watching Criminal Minds. I love plants, comic books, spaghetti, and my cat.
