Summary

I am a freelance costume designer looking for a dynamic career in teaching and sharing the magic and power of theatre. The presence of theatre is needed now more than ever in a time where anyone can feel more overwhelmed than inspired. I believe the diversity in my experiences strongly support my passion to design and teach.

I am looking forward to being part of a faculty and community that focuses on showing children how to use their imaginations to create change. Through acting workshops, team building exercises, dramaturgical research and design tools, I hope to inspire positivity in youth of today.
