UTah based Designer

I have been based in Utah for around 20 years. I’m a military brat and had the opportunity to move quite a bit as a kid. I was born in Texas and grew up in California, Alaska, and mostly Utah. I received my undergraduate education from Utah State University and I’m currently pursuing graduate school opportunities. 


My Story

My Dad told me once that I picked up a drawing pencil at 4 years old. I remember watching over his shoulder as he would create works of art. I truly think that’s where it all began for me. See, my dad was a terrific artist. He was also the first costumer I knew.

As a kid I made all sorts of funny things. My grandmother was an accomplished seamstress and made all sorts of dress-up accouterments for her grandkids. I played dress-up probably until I was 11 years old. By then I had demonstrated .
