Los Angeles, California
Born and raised in Chicago IL, I learned from my mother how to sew at an early age, making clothes for dolls and pillows for our home. After earning my BA in Merchandise Management from the International Academy of Design and Technology, I worked as a retail sales associate.
However my love for Fashion and writing would lead me to become a fashion editor for two start-up hip-hop magazines in Chicago, IL. It wasn’t until my fiancé convinced me to be the wardrobe stylist for his student film when I discovered that my true passion lied in Costuming for films.
In 2007, my fiancé and I moved to Los Angeles to persue our creative dreams. I began working in corporate retail while taking costume jobs in independent films, TV commercials and short films.
What I love about costuming is taking a Director’s vision and creating that vision through wardrobe. I continue to learn and grow as an artist and cannot wait for the next project to come my way.
When I'm not working on my Podcast “Nerds in Heels”, or collecting swag at Comic Cons, I spend time at my Los Angeles home with my fiancé and our two beautiful cats.
