I have worked closely with the UVA Department of Drama as both a head costume designer and as an assistant costume designer for two productions on the department’s main stage. I’ve also collaborated with the UVA Department of Music to design the costumes for an opera in the spring of 2018. In addition, I’ve worked with various student theatre and film organizations while at UVA. This includes my costume design work for the 2017 Adrenaline Film Project in the Virginia Film Festival, as well as work for a number of student-produced short films. I have also designed the costumes for three stage productions by The Virginia Players organization during my time at UVA.
"[I]nquiry" was a dance performance piece staged at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in April 2019, as part of the ACC Smithsonian Creativity and Innovation Festival. This piece prompted a dialogue about the representation and projection of the curated self in modern digital culture through the use of movement, projected digital imagery, and sound. Each costume piece was custom selected to best suit the dancer’s personal identities and characteristics.
I was in charge of both the production and costume design for the DU Film Society's fall 2018 short film. I was responsible for the overall design concepts and led a team of two assistants during the film's production stages.
I helped to organize, fund, and orchestrate various events throughout the fall 2018 academic term at Trinity College Dublin.
I assisted the department’s publicity manager and we met on a weekly basis.

Under this role, I was in charge of editing and uploading all of the articles to the website on a weekly basis. I was responsible for sending both mass emails to all of the team members, as well as performing individual member outreach when necessary.
I searched for, identified, and interviewed various student artists to be featured in each edition of the publication. This required communication and outreach skills, as well as direct collaboration with the editor-in-chief. I was also responsible for approving of the layout design and the cohesive organization of the selected artwork in each editorial spread.
For the Spring 2016 edition of V Magazine, I conducted an interview with a fashion designer after viewing her work in a local fashion show titled the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Culture Couture Fashion Performance.
I wrote an average of one article per month, almost always on a subject matter of my own choosing. I was also responsible for contacting and conducting interviews with current UVA students to feature on the site. I would also occasionally work on joint-written, collaborative articles with other team members.
I helped to organize and shop for the magazine’s fashion shoots and editorials. I worked directly with the head fashion director and other fashion editorial team members.
