Hi there! I have been making hats professionally for a really long time and have collected a great deal of experience working behind the scenes of the diverse and demanding New York theatre, film, and dance worlds. My list of credits include working with the acclaimed theatrical milliner Woody Shelp on many Broadway productions including, Chorus Line, The Phantom of the Opera, Into the Woods, Anything Goes, Jerome Robbins Broadway and the Christian LaCroix designs for the American Ballet Theatre. I have designed and made hats for the Oscar winning film Wall Street, and have created hats for the runway collections of Bill Blass, Angel Estrada, and Willi Smith. Relocating from New York City to the Southwest, I was the head milliner for the Arizona Opera Company under the directorship of Mr. Glynn Ross. My work has appeared in Tosca, Carmen, The Magic Flute, and Der Ring of Nibelungen. My own designs have been featured on Good Morning America. I enjoy making tiny hats (vintage 1940's), and teaching millinery techniques in classes and workshops.
