Judging Cosplay Contests:

As a professional in my field, I can bring all my knowledge to your costume contest! I specialize in judging craftsmanship competitions, having won several myself. I also strive to bring the best and most accessible experience to participants as well as put on a successful show.

 

Past events I've judged: Anime Boston (8+ years), FanExpo Cleveland,  Drawncon, ConnectiCon

Panels and Workshops:

Having worked full time as an educator for the past 8 years, I can offer a wide range of panels for
all levels of skill groups. I've taught as young as kindergarten all the way up to college and
graduate level courses. I can bring my expertise to your event and offer a wide variety of panels and workshops (See below for most current offerings).
