I am currently a senior at USC and I will graduate in May 2013 with a major in Fine Arts and a minor in Theater. I have found set design as the perfect match to go with my passion for the fine arts and love of theatre. I feel with my art background I can bring something new to the theatre that others couldn’t.
I have recently finished designing the set for “The Importance of Being Ernest” and learned how to overcome a lot of challenges such as working with a limited budget, building, painting, finding props, etc. I also worked on a graduates student’s MFA thesis project, “Shayd,” in which I had to create a cave that people will come inside, touch, and experience. I love solving problems and always accept a challenge. Because of my positive attitude and attention to detail I have been referred by my set design teacher to help the artist Brianna Corton on creating her set for the “Crescent City” Opera. I feel that I am a very trustworthy and responsible person and many of my internships and jobs have often led to more. For example, last summer I was hired at Two Roads Theatre in Studio City to do the scenic painting and a specific window painting for the production of “Kowalski.” I was then offered the position as the Production Assistant for the run of the show and managed the ticket office and helped with various back stage tasks.
I also a horror film fanatic. I often act in horror films or plays in my spare time. Last year I was seen in Haunted Play's "Delusion" as the Little Girl and Tombstone Film's "CarnieVille" as one of the Siamese twins.
Although the Theatre is my career path I am also continually working on my art and recently had my art shown in the Fisher Museum's "The One and The Many" and Two Roads Gallery, "Fear and Loathing."
My ultimate future goal is to someday own my own theatre to manage and create sets. The Theatre is a magical place for me and I hope to be able to inspire people with it the same way it has constantly fueled my imagination.
