About Me

I work in the film & entertainment industry with costumes. Contemporty clothes for TV and help build period-piece costumes for theatre. Always bouncin' around and working on new things. I've done film, television, theatre, web series eposodics, and still photography.

I'm a major extrovert and love to pack my weeks with museum outings, friend gatherings, and theatre going events. The more the merrier!

I live with two roommates in our gorgeous apartment with the whole rooftop to ourselves

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

JUNE 2016:
I'm embarking on an incredible backpacking excursion and its all about meeting people who know and love thier city. Places are to be explored with locals! I've done the tourist traps and its never as fun as finding the real breakfast spot, maybe a live band at a bar, and seeing the beauty of a town from the people who choose to live there.

I also live in NYC and know the difficulties of finding an affordable place to sleep when checking out these new cities. I hope to host after my travels & show y'all the best brunch place in town!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love live jazz music, nothin else like big band imoprov. On a weekend morning I'll listen to acoustic music or something like Mumford and Sons, best festival ive ever been to is called Boats and Bluegrass. you canoe onto the river & listen to the music from out on the water! But I also love some electronic good dance music, and am an avid Karaoke-er. I'm all about the feel-good tunes. whatever makes you want to dance!

Fav shows: Parks & Rec, 30 Rock, Continuum, GoT

Books: fiction mostly. time travel stories are a favorite. recently into books that are collections of short stories . David Sedaris is my spirit animal.

Film: futuristic dystopians. Snowpiercer anyone? mainly for the costumes, I love seeing how someone else imagines our corrupt future world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen the sky at night on an island in the Bahamas that was less traveled than one with the big resorts. There was aboslutely no light pollution and the amout of stars I could see was beyond what I ever could have imagined. There were more stars than black space between them. It was breathtaking, and it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

I've also caught a glimpse of the Northern Lights from the back deck at my parent's house, but my goal is to go further north and see them in full force someday.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm learning to swing dance, a friend of mine brings me to underground jazz parties!
I'm also learning videography- I hope to work on a passion project someday involving documentary filmmaking.

I can teach you to paint, make paper flowers, fold origami, knit, and sew. you'd be surprised how handy it is to know how to stitch a button back on.
