Graduated from UCSC with a degree in Theatre Arts Costume Design then pursuing a degree in Fashion Design at FIDM she hangs in limbo between the world of costume and fashion being pulled in both directions every step of the way. Often asking the question what is the difference between fashion and costume? Is there a line? Can one step over it?

Often inspired by the past (and love of corsets!) her designs reflect her love of fashion (costume) history and hope her wearers feel this reflected in her designs.
