Jacqueline's a writer, costume designer, and lover of beautiful things. She's on the fulltime faculty in the Department of Theatre & Film at the University of British Columbia where she also takes any writing class they’ll let her into. When not obsessing about where to put the buttons or the commas, she can be found running by the ocean, eating excessive amounts of gluten, listening to earnest love songs, and pretending her dog understands every word she says.

Other days that means crafting a joke or considering what my outfit might portray to an onlooker. My primary career is in costume design, which provides me endless ways of exploring character, world development, style, and narrative. It's also an expensive art. It requires machines, tools, materials, trimmings, fasteners, and countless trips to fabric stores. Writing generally involves me sitting on my bed with my laptop, my dog, and a LOT of tea and chocolate chips. From there I can dive right into my imagination. I am my biggest obstacle, which is no small challenge, but one I can overcome with perseverance.(less)
