I'm a creator, knitter and experienced designer - TV and Film, Costumes, Theater or Events
It started so innocently one October eve in 2007. We thought we'd whip up a couple of costumes and join the festivities in Greenwich Village in New York. Our Lego costumes landed us a prize from the official New York Halloween parade organizers that year! I've since gone bi-coastal and am now living and working in Portland, Oregon!
I now own a small business creating larger than life designs and characters. I'm happy to say that my creations have featured in everything from halloween parades, art installations, Burning Man and even a cameo in the documentary 'Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead'.
I love making the best designs possible, and love the challenge of custom work. If you have something you'd like me to create, give me a shout!
Costumes, film props, custom knitting designs, large scale projects... nothing is too small or too large!
Props, characters, costumes... anything that you might need for film, tv or theater. Not quite sure where to find that one-of-a-kind piece? This is the place.
Past experience includes knitting a replica Chris Burden ski mask featured in a music video, plus a limited edition run of the masks accompanying their commemorative 45'' records.

Costumes large or small. Over 5 years of experience with late nights preparing for the New York Village Halloween parade among other things.
Lego bride and groom, Pac-man and the Ghosts, Where the Wild Things Are characters, Muno Sock Monkey and Mr X (aka the Kia trio!), and Mr Men and Little Miss all featured through the years.
Attention to details such as construction, materials, scale and even the character's personality have all led to huge success with the crowds.

It all started with a phone call to ask me if I'd be interested in creating a 12 foot cuddly bear.
Marvin was for an interactive art installation up in Toronto. Red Paper Heart approached me with their bear design drawings - I then modelled the bear in clay, designed the construction, sourced the materials and created a monster. A cuddly cute monster.
MonkeyCon was also dreamt up in our hometown of PDX and will be in its second year for 2015! Follow along on MonkeyCon's Facebook page to find out how to participate!!
