I started sewing because everything I bought I had to alter. I continued to design clothing while working in corporate America, in accounting. I was offered a job to tour with an R&B artist. This led to 20+ years working in Wardrobe, touring the United States and internationally; affording me the opportunity to visit some great places and work with some awesome talent. In 2007, wanting to come off the road, I took on the challenge to costume Beauty and the Beast for RMTC. Over the ensuing years, I have cultivated my talents to evolve into the resident costume designer.
