I was born and raised in a Colorado ski town and moved to Los Angeles upon acceptance to Otis College of Art & Design. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Costume for Film.
My mentors include Michelle Watson, Universal Studios, Ralph Lauren, and B. Ackerlund.
During college, I had interned in costume with Shawna Trpcic and Young Contemporary at GUESS? Inc. I then worked in womenswear at Connie Roberson before moving into Men's Contemporary at Kohl's.
