Which talent would you most like to have?
Does teleportation count? I often feel like I need to be in 5 places at once, opening set, on a scout, a zoom meeting, going through buyers' photographs, meeting with my lead person or production designer or running in to solve an issue on set. If I could teleport quickly to these things and then home to bed I’d be thrilled!
Realistically, I wish I had better drawing skills!
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
That I have made a career doing something I love.
I grew up in Kansas without knowing that this was something that I could do for a living, and now I can't imagine doing anything else.
Which word or phrase do you use the most?
“That’s the jalapeño!”
Let me explain that... While working on a show I accidentally dropped a jalapeno outside a taco truck set and left it. When the on set dresser came in for the day, he asked if I left it there on purpose or if he should clean it up. I told him it was on purpose. The next time we opened a new set and he saw a couple stray candy wrappers on a desk, he asked if that was 'the jalapeno' and I said ‘yes’. ‘That’s the jalepeno’ has become the small set decoration pieces that you instinctively want to clean up but are left on purpose to bring life to a set!
What do you look for on the Craft Services table?
I'm a long term vegan with a couple mild food allergies, so I'm always asking questions especially since covid has done away with the self serve crafty table. I definitely favor a savory snack, but have been known to get pretty excited over apple slices with peanut butter!
Please name a benefit of being an SDSA member.
The sense of community is one of the greatest benefits. This is a very resourceful and talented group of people with a wealth of knowledge to share. When you are the only decorator on a busy show, it is easy to feel like you're an island. Being part of the SDSA has changed that for me, and I love how we often uplift and celebrate each other and our amazing body of work.
