ETC.

From playing oboe on a country album to drawing Saturday morning cartoons, Stephanie has done a little bit of a lot of things. 

After years of curating, upcycling, and selling vintage clothing in Austin, TX., her interest in fashion eventually led to freelance work in wardrobe styling for photo shoots and music videos. Today, she curates the "get the look" segment You Are in a Clothing Store, exploring lesser known looks from film and television and how to achieve them affordably and sustainably. 

In addition to spending several years as a talent booker and event coordinator for Loverboy Comedy, she also served for 2 years on the Board of Directors for BettyFest, a women-run organization and annual festival with the mission of increasing the intersectional representation of women, non-binary, and queer individuals in sketch, improv, and stand-up comedy through education and performance opportunities.
