Trained as a fine artist, my love of making objects and installations naturally lead me into an interest in creating worlds for stage and screen. Because of my art training I’ve found that I have an innate sense of color and form, as well as experience working with a large variety of materials and mediums, all of which greatly aides me in the process of planning, buying, creating a set or making props. I also have an iphone, a mac, and a vehicle that can haul a lot of stuff.

Band of Robbers was a lot of hard work but extremely fulfilling. The most challenging part of this feature was the sheer number of locations and the on location build we had to do in Barstow, CA.
