I have nearly 15 years of experience working in the theatre. Beginning as a set builder, I have worked in a number of different positions including costume stitcher, props builder, costume designer, set designer, lighting board operator, sound board operator, milliner, shoemaker, crafts artisan, and even briefly as an actor.
I also have a proven background in management, having spent the past two years managing DelMonico Hatter in New Haven, CT as well as founding and managing my own business from 2009-2014.
My world is driven by my search for knowledge. This goal of discovering new things is what drove me into the fashion world and has continued to drive my design work. My main fashion inspirations come from historical fashions and modern street fashions. I enjoy combining historical fashions with various sub-cultures to create new ideas.
