I am a professional seamstress who has been working in the theme park and attraction industry for four years. I am currently a Costume Tech with SeaWorld San Antonio focusing on our Sesame Street products. I went into that position right after getting my degree in Theatrical Costume Design from Houston Community College, which has one of the most hands on programs in Texas. I have also worked at a custom drapery shop and as the Costume Manager for 13th Floor Haunted House.
I started teaching myself to sew when I was 12 years old because I wanted to make my own Halloween costumes. It has become an absolute passion of mine and I want to share it with as many people as I can! So if your goal is to learn how to make costumes for stage, Halloween, or cosplay I would be more than happy to teach you.
I would love a chance to work with children as I was a camp councillor for 5 years during High School and College. My Gold Award in Girl Scouts (equivalent to the Boy Scout Eagle) was teaching younger girls how to make basic dresses that were then donated to the woman's shelter of Ft. Worth.
Mainly working with the Sesame Street product, but have had my hand in many aspects of the park. Trainer costumes, Halloween, props, makeup, and much more!
Was with this company for two Halloween seasons, including special events that happened during the year. Worked on making custom costumes for performers, tailoring existing outfits, and managing all costume distribution.
