Theatrical Costume Designer


My career as a costume designer began with an apprenticeship at Syracuse Stage and continued as a graduate student at the University of Connecticut's Department of Dramatic Arts. Since graduating in 1992, I've designed costumes for a variety of performances, including a Broadway showcase and several Off-Broadway plays. In addition, I've designed for a wide range of productions, including dramatic plays, musical theater, opera, children's theater and dance pieces at regional theaters and educational Institutions.

ASAP, the After School Arts Program is an innovative arts program for pre-K students through adults based in Washington, CT. Professional teaching artists work with students in a variety of disciplines.  My time at ASAP gave me the opportunity to teach a wide variety of subjects to many different age groups, including costume design, theater, jewelry making, creating recyclable art, puppetry, millinery, mask making, and sculpture. Collaboration between fellow teaching artists was integral to ASAP's teaching process, and the growth, support and empowerment of the students were primary goals.
