Rachel grew up in Sydney, acknowledging her love of the theatrical arts from a young age, often trading her Christmas and birthday presents for tickets to the opera. Her love of design grew throughout her years of schooling at St Catherine’s, performing and designing costumes for the yearly school musicals.
Rachel enrolled regularly in NIDA design and costume short courses; with these skills and her passion for design she secured a highly sought after work secondment at Sydney Theatre Company in 2010. She also had the pleasure of shadowing designer Tess Schofield working on The Wonderful World of Dissocia at Sydney Theatre Company in 2009. This further cemented her desire to pursue the creative arts and after graduating high school in 2011, Rachel secured a position at NIDA.
Rachel has thoroughly enjoyed collaborating and creating in both the theatre and film and is looking forward to entering the next phase of her career and continuing her growth as a designer.
