My costume work includes everything from pant hems to construction, to creating unusual costume pieces. I have over 30 years experience in clothing and costume construction, alterations and maintenance. I am experienced in the use of industrial and home sewing equipment. My specialty skills include: hand embroidery, beading, weaving, and a variety of craft skills. I also have extensive experience working as a dresser with touring Equity productions. In the past few years, I have worked in film and television, sewing as a dayplayer on productions such as House of Cards. The embroidery pictured here was done for the film My One And Only. I am a member of IATSE locals Theatrical Wardrobe Union 913, and 487 Mid-Atlantic Studio Mechanics and Broadcast Technicians.
