Costume Maker

Originally from North Carolina in America, I came to the UK to study at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with a particular focus on costume construction. My passion for costumes began about 8 years ago, when I started making cosplay as a hobby, which then led me to volunteering at local theaters and learning more about how costume plays into a larger industry.

Ideally, I’d like to stay and work in the UK, and my long term goal is to work in the film and television industry as a costume maker. However, considering I don’t have much experience yet, I believe starting as a daily or trainee will prove invaluable. I’m excited to learn new skills, and be part of a team to help create beautiful and unique productions.

During my time at university, I’ve found I especially enjoy making 20th century costumes, as well as working with contemporary costumes, either through the breakdown department or working on-set. I’m very hardworking and terribly enthusiastic about costumes, so my free time is usually spent creating more cosplay, expanding on my millinery skills, as well as learning more about leather work and tailoring.

Outside of costumes, I’m an avid writer and reader, figure skater, dancer, and lover of all things wacky and wild.
