ABOUT HALO/EMPIRE

A little more About Me:

Well, I've worked within many aspects of the entertainment industry, such as:
  • Costume design in film
  • Production work
  • Starring in national commercials
I've also been fortunate enough to have played with stars for much of my adult life which plays a big part in my aesthetics.

Fun Fact – In September 2005, I was asked by the tv show Charmed to produce a set of dolls to be used in an episode for their final season. As I had worked on the show on and off since season 2 as either background, doubling one of the actresses or as a full time stand-in. They knew of my work on dolls; it was a little hectic as I had a one week turnaround, but the costume department took care of the costumes, so I knew I could get it done! When all was said and done, the producers were beyond happy with the dolls (and the actors even asked about getting ones for themselves)! The episode aired in January of 2006 and is called "Payback's a Witch".

In the 'real world' – I've worked as a seamstress for the international sportswear line Lacoste's 2008 campaign in April of '07; then was invited to come back and head the department later that year for the Fall campaign!
