    Additional Information

    I'm very outgoing person, who likes working with people. When I work on costume or props designs, I like to make everything up to my high standard. My motto: it's great, but you can make it better next time. I won't quit, until I finish my work.

    About me

    I have over 30 years of experience in fashion design.I worked for regional fashion house in Kazakhstan for many years.I hold position of engineer-technologist of the sewing industry. I worked in the experimental laboratory as technologist, working on new sewing technologies and fashion shows. After moving to US I worked as alteration specialist at the local bridal shop as independent contractor and at Product Development Department as Sample Room Coordinator.

    After many years of working for fashion industry,I decided to try something new- theater. Graduated from Viterbo University with BFA in Theatre with specification on Theatrical Costume Design. My passion is costume design, makeup and property design. Currently I'm employed by Viterbo University as Costume Shop Technician and as Costume Designer at La Crosse Community Theatre.
