I believe in designing a world within a theatre that engages the audience to think past the stage. Using effective communication, collaboration, and innovation my designs stand out. Creating new, bold designs are the standards I hold myself to. Finding the key elements within a piece inspires me to hit the refresh button on any show I work on.
Maggie was born and raised in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. She actively pursued theatre from the age of 12. During her senior year of high school, she found a passion for design through a former art teacher. From there, she attended East Stroudsburg University for Musical Theatre Performance. Shortly after, she declared a minor in Technical Theatre with a focus in lighting. She took a gap year and worked for the Walt Disney World Company in Orlando, Florida. Returning with a newfound drive, she took on new roles and positions in the theatre department at ESU. Maggie changed her technical theatre minor into a second major. After switching to online classes, due to Covid-19, she rediscovered her love for scenic design. Having more time to create at home, allowed her to dive deeper into her work. After earning her BA in Technical Theatre & Musical Theatre Performance, she moved to Indiana to pursue her MFA in Scenic Design from Indiana University (IU). This past summer she acted as the Scenic Charge Artist for Hangar Theatre in Ithaca, NY. After graduation (May 2024), Maggie is planning to move back to the East Coast to pursue her freelance design work.
