Currently I am a Furniture Restoration Artist at Trefler's Restoration and the Studio Assistant for Q2Q Comics where I help with quality control, manning the signing booths at conferences, organizing, fulfilling Kickstarters for book printing, and even wrote a comic once. I am a graduate of Ohio University with an MFA in Production Technology - Props where I studied under Tom Fiocchi. My home base is currently Boston, MA.
I am originally from the Pacific Northwest (Mukilteo, WA) where I graduated from Western Washington University with a BA in Theatre (concentrations in Technical Theatre & Scenic Design). I also hold dual citizenship with the US & Canada.
I worked for two years at Wyrmwood Gaming (a well known luxury tabletop gaming accessory company), finishing out as the Marquetry Specialist & Specialty Product Lead. For four summer seasons I worked at Stages St. Louis (two as Assistant Prop Master). Previously I've worked for companies including Barter Theatre, MIT, Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, and PNTA. I have also been an active member of USITT since 2011 and assisted in 2018 with Props Lab on the Stage Expo floor.
I prefer to take jobs that will provide opportunities for creative problem-solving, increasing my skill set, and working with other creative folk. While my career has leant to me making many, many fancy boxes, I would enjoy some diversity of projects as well.
My hobbies include cross-county roadtripping, watching terrible Sci-Fi B movies, Dungeons & Dragons, and taking things apart so I can figure out how they work. I also has two very adorable cats named Poe (aka Poetato) and Spoops.
