I have designed wigs for over ninety productions, from large musicals to smaller, ensemble shows, in a variety of performance venues.

For four seasons I was the Wig and Makeup designer for the Barter Theatre, and have been the Wig Master/Designer at Actors Theatre of Louisville since 2008.  Other recent design credits include Amadeus for the Clarence Brown Theatre, the regional premiere of Emerald and the Love Song of the Dead Fishermen and Last Night at the Ballyhoo for Hope Summer Repertory Theatre.

Please visit my Resume page to see my full credentials, including design credits, publications and teaching.

My years of work have given me valuable experience in working with Equity actors in a repertory situation, and have encouraged me to find creative solutions to the challenges of supervising a wig department. I am familiar with the needs of large theatre and performing arts facilities, and have years of experience managing large, multi-show builds, constructing specialty wigs and hair goods, and working with a variety of budgets.

Please consider me if you have wig and makeup needs. I am available for freelance wig design and have my own stock off high-quality pieces for rental use.  Additionally, I am delighted to announce the creation of  the Custom Wig Company, your source for any and all top-quality custom hair goods.

In addition to my production work, I enjoy teaching courses and workshops on a variety of topics including wig styling, ventilating and makeup.  Please visit the Workshop section of this website for further information.
