I am a educator,designer, and performer at South Dakota State University.
I was born and raised in Ashland, Ky where I began performing at an early age and made my stage debut in Hello Dolly at Ashland Community College. Next, I moved on to Morehead State University, in the hills of Kentucky, where I found my love for design. With the support of my amazing family, I graduated from Morehead State University with a BA in Theatre and minor in Studio Art. For graduate school I attended Michigan State University in Lansing, MI. In graduate school I designed scenery, costume, and was an educator. After graduating with my MFA in Production design I started working at South Dakota State University where I still am today.
