I was born and raised in Northern Pennsylvania. I developed an appetite for creative endeavors, which lead me to attend Penn State for Landscape Architecture. After a year learning about drafting, soils, and plant identification, I changed my major to a BFA in Theatre with a focus in design and technologies. While in this program I devoted my time towards learning scenic design, but ultimately fell in love with prop making and managing.
For two summers I worked in the properties department at The Williamstown Theatre Festival. With it's rigorous work schedule and talented team, I was able to expand my professional props skills. I currently live in Los Angeles and have freelanced around the city at many different theatres, including the Wallis Annenberg and The Broad Stage.
For two years I worked as the Properties Master at The American Academy of the Dramatic Arts, where I produced props for over 40 shows through out the school year. Currently I work as a park decorator at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA. I work along side merchandising specialist, imagineers, and my teammates to develop beautiful window displays and store interior decorations.
