I am a graduate of the Art Institute of Portland with a Bachelors degree in Apparel design, who also has a huge amount of interest in historical costuming. I have interned for the Portland Opera Company and am currently working on a short independent film called "Widow's Walk Lake". Though most of my experience is in costuming, I also have interests in lingerie and women's apparel. My goals are to start working for a theatrical or opera company or getting into design work.
