      I have an MFA in costume design. After working my way through college in work study and fellowships in the costume shop I worked for four years at the Cleveland Playhouse, first as a fellow and then as a cutter draper. In 1989 my husband and I moved to Florida where I got a job with Walt Disney World in Creative Costuming making Entertainment costumes.

      I have recently changed careers to become a media specialist (librarian) in an elementary school. At Disney, I missed my work with period costumes. I'm a stickler for accuracy. The move was great because I can choose my projects. At the moment I am constructing costumes for my husband who works at the Titanic Exhibition here in Florida. He portrays a 3rd class passenger, who was a farm laborer.

      I'm starting my research and budgeting to create a Titanic Deck Officer's Uniform. (The show director wants him to portray Henry Tingle Wilde, the Chief Office---just under Captain Smith.) It is an exciting project and a little scary since I have not tailored a men's jacket in a long time, so I will have to review my techniques.
