Design focused professional that creates innovative environments to tell powerful stories.

Visited the Tower of London’s poppy exhibition remembering the fallen soldiers of WWI. There is something about public art, especially memorials, that strikes me. There is a vulnerability by the artists to trust such broad audiences to reach beyond the contained environment of their creative communities that I admire. It takes courage.

Keeping up with Terry Dresbach’s costuming for the new Outlander series has become one of my favorite pass times. The historical research and the eclectic finds she has put together to make this story are some of the most important things I love about creating a scene. 

I understand this is menswear, but I still want these shirts.
