What are your plans for the future?

My plans include finding an amazing job teaching theatre or working as a designer or scenic artist!

Describe a defining moment in your time in the School of the Arts.

My most defining moment I experienced while working as an MFA student was when I was recognized regionally and nationally for my scenic and costume design for In the Blood.

What has influenced your creativity here at KU?

My design professors and the KU theatre staff get all the credit for every single amazing thing I have done. Without them, I wouldn't know how to push my creativity to its fullest extent.
