I am a designer specializing in costume design while also working in scenic, sculpture, illustration, and fabrication. I’m drawn to lyrical writing, inventive storytelling, fluid collaboration, and the discovery of building the perfect world for each story. I’m co-owner of the craft company Caftiga Ltd, an artistic associate of Cloudgate Theatre, and an adjunct teaching artist at DePaul University. You can find me most days working in my studio surrounded by paints, pencils, fabrics, stacks of books, a warm pot of tea, and my best-dog, Banjo.  I received my MFA from Northwestern University.

I love challenges and thinking outside the box.  I look forward to discussing your next project with you!
