Senior Instructor and Costume Designer DeMara Cabrera is a native Oregonian who grew up in McMinnville and went to high school in Portland. DeMara received her B.A. in Drama from Stanford University in 2004. Taking a brief departure from theatre, DeMara earned her M.S. in Interior Design from Oregon State in 2006 and proceeded to work in that field for several years. Eventually her love for theatre won out, though, and DeMara returned to school to earn her M.F.A. from Boston University in 2013. She worked as an Assistant Professor at Central Connecticut State University for two years and has also worked as an Instructor, Designer, and Costume Shop Manager at Linfield College (2007).
