    About me

    Costume, specifically the transformational nature of clothing, has been of great interest to me since I was a child. I subsequently trained in costume design at the University of Arts London. I had a range of work experience whilst at university including film, television, theatre and burlesque costume. Once graduated I worked as a wardrobe manager on a pantomime at Cast Doncaster and then became a dresser at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. I'm now interested in working in a range of environments, learning from experienced colleagues to widen my existing skills.
