Costumer. Writer. Rollergirl.

I’ve been a historical costumer for over fifteen years, and I love to research, learn, and share what I know with other people. I also have over ten years experience in professional theatre costuming and education.

I currently live outside of Nashville Tennessee with my lovey wife, Mrs. Stitch. (Kate), and our three adorable and unruly cats. Mrs. Stitch also acts as my blog copy editor, costume fitter, and life-seize dress-up doll. I’m a very lucky girl.

I’m also a four year veteran of Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby where I became known as Whip Stitch and found myself growing stronger and braver than I ever though possible. Roller derby is rough, real, and incredibly empowering. I want to bring that attitude to costuming.
