The beautiful thing about theatre is that it is ephemeral. For a captivating moment in time it is here and then it is gone. It is a mirror that reflects back our lives whether a show is rooted in reality or purely from imagination. It encourages, inspires, and makes us really think about where we came from, who we are, and where we can go. This is what pulled me in as an artist.
From a young age I had a hunger for knowledge and a passion for many things. However, the one passion that I always came back to is my love to create art and share stories. I found that in designing for theatre I was able to combine those passions and share them with the world even if they only exist for a brief moment in time.
Originally from Bismarck, ND, I moved to Moorhead, MN to attend Concordia College where I graduated with a degree in Theatre Art, Classical Studies, and Heritage and Museum Studies in May 2017. I won the first place National Costume Design Award for The Country Wife at the 2017 Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF) Region 5 competition. From there I attended the national KCACTF conference in Washington D.C. in April for a week long fellowship. After receiving my undergraduate degree I workedas a freelance costume designer in Fargo/Moorhead area. Currently, I am pursuing my Master of Fine Arts degree in Costume Design at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.
