She holds an MFA in Drama/Costume Design and is an award-winning designer of stage and film. As a huge gaming geek, she loves to design custom goods for nerdy-chic companies. When not writing or designing she spends her time playing Zelda, drinking tea, building LEGO creations with her son, and dreaming up different worlds.
